There’s so much emphasis we place on what we ‘think’ happened. ‘I fell down. better not do that again.’ In reality we don’t know, anything.  Falling down could be the best thing that every happened to us.

The song Pick Yourself Up written by Jerome Kern and Dorothy Fields from the movie Swing Time is the purest example of this simple truth.

“Take a deep breath.
Pick yourself up.
Dust yourself off.
And. Start all over again.”

Words. to live by.

Take a new look, expand your breathing and see things differently.

This breath can represent a change.
This breath a new direction.
This breath the reclaiming of some dream.
This breath redeeming hope.

Resigned can be a thing of the past. Heartache doesn’t disappear but is replaced slowly, quickly, hard to say. Change travels its own course. Allow yourself to enjoy the process even though it feels different. It may be scary; it may feel tough; notice it and do it anyway. Breathe.  Just Breathe.  — Excerpt from Melanie Lutz’s The Bare Melcessities

Here’s an affirmation to try in this breath and the next…

I recenter in my body
I realign with each breath I take
I love myself in each rise and fall of my chest
Connecting with the field of limitless possibility
I stay open to the surprise of the moment
In alignment with my authentic self
Free from fear and ego
And the tyranny of my thinking
Clearing any energy picked up along the way
I relax into the truth
Wholly free.

May you feel connected, comforted and full of peace

Today. Now. Always.

May your heart open in ways never before possible
revealing the deepest truth of your fullest knowing.

With Infinite Love and Gratitude

breathe, just-breathe

Take Mel’s Love Land Pledge –

For the #Next100 Days I am going to consider the possibility there is another way….

I won’t spin out, I will choose to take a beat and breathe, just breathe.

I won’t judge success or failure.  I will celebrate my effort and action.

I will listen and stay open to the loving action that needs to be taken

I will encourage others to fly.

I won’t stay asleep, I will awaken to the truth.

I will take flight into the possibility of the present moment.

I will see the truth shining through each heart I meet.

I will follow my still small voice in owning what I know

I will let love lead the way.

I will savor the fruits of my labor.

I won’t stay stuck in my story, I will quite simple love the adventure.

I won’t shy away from what needs to be done.  I will impact every situation with love.

I won’t listen to sounds of discontent.  I will harmonize in my happiest self.

I won’t test anyone or anything trying to prove a point.  I will have acceptance and forgiveness for who I am, right now.

I won’t hide in the shadows. I will ignite my light!

I won’t shy away from commitment, I will practice showing up for myself

I won’t focus on the negative, I will accentuate the positive

I won’t worry about what might happen, I will celebrate what does

I will have a miracle.

I won’t talk about war, I will feel peace.

I won’t talk about what isn’t working. I will experience what is.

I won’t complain about what people don’t do. I will appreciate what they do.

Cura Et Labore “with care and work”

I am going to allow myself to be uplifted.

And be willing to see change. In a new light.

In what’s remembered.

With Love
