B is for Begin again

I was going to do breath-but this word haunts me.   My son was recently sick and on oxygen for 17 days-struggling to breathe.  Ten doctors later and the word virus still lingers.  He is getting better and rebuilding his immune system.     Sometimes we have to start over.

Begin again.

Life can kick us to the curb and we need the mentality to move forward.  I took my son to the doctor and he came out without assisted oxygen. He was happy and I felt like  maybe I could breathe normal again, too.

The body is an amazing thing-filled with mysteries, celebrations and madness. My son has to rebuild his body-he lost muscle mass and is weak.  I told him to,"begin again."  Our minds need a first step towards a fresh start.

Sometimes, we push ourselves too hard, don't eat right, don't move enough, or over do-don't sleep enough so, we can  finish deadlines and projects.   

Everyone is busy-

So, be mindful of you.  Begin again, each day with a plan, to treat yourself with respect.  A list of breaks for the 3B's:  Brain, Body and Breath.  





My 3B's today are:

Brain-Read, do puzzles, perhaps try Zentangles again, finish an essay I am working on. 

Body-Walk to the river's edge, try Pilates, again. 

Breathe: Perform a breathing exercise or meditation. 

What about you, what are your 3B's?

My B's today - gosh can't think of any that are better or even equal to yours. So I'll steal them.
Happy A to Z Day 2!

Indeed a blessing!

Every day is a new beginning, a new opportunity. We have the chance to start again and/or change things.

The wonderful thing about dawn is that it reminds us that each day is an opportunity to begin each day anew.

Happy to hear that your son is doing well again. I hope he is fully healthy again in a very brief time.

B is for Breathe Deep
do not disdain portrayals of love
or feign affection
but receive with open arms and heart
lifes every emanation

for love it falters and tends
to fade away
and hearts are scorned and
cry from day to day

do not fold within
like a flower sleeping at
the end of its season
but always leave a little room
to begin again...


glad that your son is breathing freely
and so are you!

glad to have you back, mi amiga
