Lately I’ve been holding my breath thinking that if I just don’t breathe I can make it through whatever is challenging me at the moment – a new venture, a tough yoga pose, a difficult home repair job. It seems with every day there comes a new hurdle.
But of course, as any yoga teacher will tell you — you have to BREATHE into the challenge. Step into it and face it.
I’m reminded of that even more with the words and example that Steve Jobs left us — death is the best invention of life. With that thought in mind, I completely exhaled and realized that any risk, any challenge in life is nothing compared to that final transition.
It is a change agent; a freeing thought.
The extraordinary thing about his passing was the collective exhale we experienced as we realized that the majority of our day-to-day fears are trivial and self manufactured.
Together we take a deep breath of freshness in. Then slowly exhale all our old worries and fears out. Repeat.
