You own your breath

You own your breath

You have a lot of decisions that demand your attention, for every day and for your future.
There’s a lot of pressure for you to make the right decision.
Only one person has the right answer … you. Those decisions need to be made by your heart.
At some point no one will be pushing you.
You must take full responsibilities for the decisions in your life.
~ Garth Stein, at a high school commencement

One of my Facebook friends posted a quote on her status that says if you own your breath, you own your peace.  Similarly, you are the one person who owns the right to decide what is best for your life.  No one can tell you which path to take, which decision to make or if you will succeed or fail.  Because that is all a part of the journey.  So listen to your heart.  Take your time.  You only have one shot at Someday.

Have you made the best decisions for your life?

Waiting for the curve ball

A couple of days into my ninth month of daily blogging — almost three-quarters of the year behind us — and I’m drawing another blank.  I can’t blame it on yogi brain, or lack of material.  I simply feel like I’m in a place where I’ve worked through so many curve balls that I know I’m my own worst enemy, I need to take more chances, make smarter choices, be present Today (while still holding onto the promises of Someday), avoid making assumptions or pinky promises that cannot be kept, etc.  Perhaps it’s time I start tossing in a book review occasionally (speaking of which, The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein is a fabulous read, as well as Snowbound by Blake Crouch).  Or I suppose I only need to give it another day or two and life will toss in a different curve ball.  No doubt I’ll have something new to work through and more blogs to write.

What do you do with life’s curve balls?
