"Breathing in, I calm my body.
Breathing out, I smile..."
- Thich Nhat Hanh
Last year, I chose the word JOY as a focus. I learned so much, particularly how easy it is for me to find joy, but also how hard it can be to maintain that joy. I want to deepen this effort, and I've learned that BREATHING helps me maintain my joyful state. When I'm faced with a challenge, something not going my way, a fear, I want to take a moment - pause and breathe. Breathe!
And this is my new calendar for the year! :-)
