Monday Moment: One more breath

Emerson Brave quote w tag

Good morning ! A little Monday motivation here in keeping with our theme from last week of managing discomfort (and enabling growth) through mindfulness. Sometimes the difference between a “hero” and someone who doesn’t seem like one is just the willingness to not give up. Every single one of us can be courageous, intrepid, and even heroic, but perhaps not for long enough to make a difference. When you’re facing a challenge that you are ready to run from, as long as you’re not in danger, see what happens when you take one extra breath before doing so. I’m not promising that you will be able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but you may be capable of greater strength than you thought.

So take that, Monday. You’ve got this week already, and all you had to do was breathe.
