Just Stop And Take A Breath


Thanks for stopping by



Stop for a moment...

Take a breath...
...Then take another...

"The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook."
- William James

"Progress is like walking on a rolling barrel."
- Robert Frost

"Sometimes the first duty of intelligent persons is the restatement of the obvious."

- George Orwell

As children we were pushed to perform; and so most of us have internalized the habit of over-riding our innate temperment. We are strangers to ourselves; never having learned to know, value, and work along with our natural inclinations. . . our GIFTS! That's why life can seem like a "to do" list instead of a pleasure. No wonder we're often exhausted. . . It is the very thing that we seek to be rid of, that thing we are ashamed of, that is calling us back to the path of healing, to our sweet, original selves. If we simply stop running. If we look at it and bear with it patiently. . . treasure will emerge. . . the treasure of your unique nature. . .
