just breathe

if you can control your breath, you can control your mind.
if you can control your mind, you can control your life.
~ yogi bhajan ~

i just came across this quote,
and it definitely rings home for me.
i feel a little bit like i've been letting life pull me around lately,
and using that as an excuse
to postpone following my dreams,
to not take immediate action,
and to feel sorry for myself.

this is a good reminder that we are responsible for the place our lives are at.
if my life isn't what i want it to be,
it's up to me to fix that.
i can start today, and i can easily start within myself,
with my attitude, my energy level, and my goals.

if you change your attitude, you can change your life.


  1. that's right beautiful lady!

  2. So true, so true! We have the power to change situations just by taking responsibility and action of ourselves. Now if only more people can experience this!

  3. Hi I just wanted to say a hello to you from Hamilton, ON. I came across your blog a few weeks ago and am quite enjoying it! Love the layout and of course your posts,
    Happy New Year

  4. You're absolutely right!!

  5. Beautiful post! I love that second picture -- to the way she looks so free to her lovely dress.

    And it's so true that there's so many opportunities to just feel sorry for myself, when it's really up to me to make myself feel better.

    Here's to positive attitudes all the way! :)

  6. ooh that just reminded me i should go to yoga today. :-)
