How easy it is for my mind to rush ahead to what’s next and what might happen. And what I have to get done. How easy it is to get caught in too much thinking, and rethinking, and rethinking.

This breath is all we have.

All I have is right here, right now, right in front of me. No matter how many times I remember this, I then forget it. No matter how often I hear it, it’s a good reminder. Each time my yoga instructor offers this prompt, I think, “Oh yeah. That’s right. Just this breath.”

This breath. And now this one.

I know that I’m blessed beyond belief. I know that at times the scars from my past ache. I know that I have a choice – I always have a choice – in where and how I focus and how much joy I allow in my life.

And I know that I only have this breath.

It’s so easy to get carried away, thinking I have to fix things. Or fix me. But when I breathe, and breathe again, I feel release, relief, and ease. I feel my heart fill with love – to overflowing.

This breath is all I have. That’s all I have to say about that right now.
