Appreciation: The Breath of Life


Take a breath.  Breathe into your center and expand your energy up and out like the branches of a tree reaching for the sun.  And exhale a long, slow breath.  Allow that breath to connect you deeply with the earth.

The Buddhist monk, Thich Nhat Hanh says, “Breathing in, I smile, breathing out I relax.  This is a wonderful moment.”  When we pause for a moment and appreciate what offers us life, beauty and vitality, space is created for more of what we appreciate in the world.

Take a moment now and notice all that you appreciate around you.   And know that what you appreciate, appreciates.  Practice appreciation this week.
