Just Breathe... And let it go.

So, I'm going to be super honest right now. 

I've been feeling a little heavy, a little under par, a little bit like I've been pushing too much and resting my happiness on the achievement of X. (Dammit, I thought I'd learnt this lesson one million times over).

As the story goes, “ I'm not where I want to be, I want to be anywhere but here.” It's a familiar story that keeps playing over and over.

And I'm guessing I'm not the only one.

Who else forgets about the magic of the moment?

And gets so caught up in chasing the next goal, object, achievement, move, or job that they forget to enjoy this one right here.

Let it go. Let it all go.

Let go of your expectation of having this job, that much money in the bank account, the lover, the house, the image, the car, whatever it is.

Let it go and breathe.  

The magic has always been in this moment right now.

We are so busy living life through our minds, creating stories of how our life is supposed to be, what we are lacking and we forget how to be in the moment, how to enjoy the bliss and the incredible magic around every corner.

So, if you are finding life a little like pushing cement up-hill.

Ask yourself if you're feeling heavy, off-kilter, tight in the chest or just frankly not quite yourself.

Then... L E T IT GO.

And if, like me, you still don't immediately understand and remember what this means, try this: 

Say, “I am letting go.”

Breathe in. Breathe out. “I am letting go.”

Breathe in. Breathe out. “I am letting go.”

Do this, saying the words like you really mean them, until you feel a new energy wash over you, a new energy move through you, one of lightness, joy and bliss.

Sometimes you may have to sit like this for 20 minutes. Feeling your breath & your toes.

Trust me: it's magic, it works, and it's really worth doing to be in the moment.

Love Danielle
