Can you simply relax and allow this moment to unfold? 

Can you let go of evaluation and judgment, and simply accept that this is what is happening?

Remember it is only our resistance to the present moment that causes us to feel any pain.

Acceptance creates the inner freedom and inner peace that we are all yearning for.

So take a deep breath… and then another.


Be easy on yourself and others.

Trust your life and experience that has brought you to this moment.

Instead of wishing things to be different, focus on expressing the love that is within you.

Find gratitude every day.

Get out of your head and open your heart.

  1. This is very true. The more we are in acceptance of the current moment, the deeper we shall get into reality. We shall then learn how not to get into a “flight”, that may present other unseen and undesirable situations in the future. Thanks for this wonderful piece,

    • Thank you Jim💕 I dropped off 20 bottles last week. They should have plenty as fewer people are going to the studio. Hummingbird Yoga and Massage is at 640 Haverford Road (Just after Bryn Mawr Ave coming from Villanova) in the lower level. Call ahead to make sure someone is there 610-955-3328
      Cash please – $10 per one pound bottle

  5. Ahhh… breathing deeply in this present moment.
    Life is a journey that just keep unfolding and unfolding and unfolding.
    How it unfolds is a reflection of the depth of each breath I take in and let out into each moment.
    Lovely share Val. Thank you. ❤

  12. Good advice, through and through. Life can go from scary uncertainty to peaceful clarity in a blink of the eye . . . or a slow and steady inhale/exhale.

    Aah . . . that’s better!

      • I was going to say, “what are you talking about? . . . I just posted.” But I see that was 10 days ago! WHAT?!

        Time flies in the blink of an eye! 😯

        • And so it goes…. little by little in our emerged state of being, we forget about the calendar, tuning into the world, or the expectations of others. It’s either enlightenment or old age 💛
