As you get ready for 2019, you are preparing to breathe in your future. The fresh air will bring you a boost of oxygen and along with it, a feeling of energy and sharpness to your thoughts.
However, there is one thing that has to happen first. You have to empty your lungs before you can breathe in.
Breathing is a two-step process. To breathe in, you need to breathe out first. Before you breathe in 2019, you need to breathe out 2018. How do you do that?
Release your feelings. What happened is a fact. Everything else is in your thoughts. Let go of the regrets, the doubts, and the misgivings. They are those bits of old air stuck in your lungs. Bring one of those bits into active thought and then breathe it out. Those feelings are only there for you. They cease to exist when you breather them out.
Before you can set new goals and intentions, you need to create a space for them. Empty a space so that you can fill it with sharp, clean, crisp positivity.
Just about everybody involving in a birthing event understands the process of taking a cleansing breath. Cleansing breaths are also a technique to stimulate your mind and body. That’s what you are going to do with 2018.
I read recently that over 90% of the New Year resolutions are broken within the first month. I suspect that part of the cause is a failure to breathe out. Does it matter if you gave up regular exercise in 2018? No. Does it matter if never got around to starting that savings account? No. Breathe out those regrets. They’re gone.
What are you breathing out before 2019?
