When we are going through a process of change, it is very typical that we can have expectations of what this process of change will feel like. We can get so focused on the expectation; we can become immune to what is actually happening. Have you ever felt like you were holding your breath, waiting for something to happen…well, you were! Sometimes, I find myself, holding my breath- did I think it will help my concentration…connect me to what I was doing? ha ha ha… quite the opposite.. Everything just stopped, my shoulders were up in my ears, my body became tense.. So what to do – Take a Breath ~ Ahh… just breathe…feel your body relax, connect to what you ARE feeling, if you think it is nothing, well that is just a label. If we notice without expectation, we find we ARE feeling something!
When I first had this conversation with myself, the song “Nothing” from “A Chorus Line” came into my head ~ the message for me is, we all feel things differently ~we are all different in our own unique way, perfect for who we are~ a reminder not to compare ourselves to others ~ Enjoy Being!
It only takes a moment to take a breath,
It only takes a moment to become inspired”
