Lately life has been just plain chaotic. To many things to do with not enough time to do them – sound familiar? Pulled in different directions, way different. Projects grow stagnant as more “pressing” situations come forth. There is no routine, no constant, no normalcy. Crazy seems to be the new normal around here…but is it really? Isn’t it always somewhat crazy just with different circumstances?
What I’ve come to discover is that we will never completely get rid of the chaos in our lives (that would be boring) so the only other option is to find peace within it. It is not the situations or circumstances themselves, but rather our reactions to them that make us feel slightly off kilter. And then, I come back to one of my all time favorite yoga tools….focusing on the breath. Taking in the most delicious FULL DEEP breath imaginable. Drinking it up and noticing the small nuances of what it feels like to actually breathe…to actually be alive or maybe just maybe…..to be breathed by something much larger than myself. Sweet surrender surfaces once again.
Then, I am reminded that all. is. well.
Breathe In…Peace Out…Be Well.
