Candy's Corner - Take a Breath
OK, this started off as a plug for my upcoming retreat “Take A Breath,” and ended up being the day I realize I am about to step in to something new in my life – It’s scary as hell and I’m going to do it anyway because I long to live a life that is aligned with who I truly am – You know, the singing, dancing, poetic, high heel wearing life coach and retreat leader! Is there a “you” that longs to be set free? Won’t you take a breath with me now and remember who you are?
With deepest love,
“Take A Breath”
In the midst of life already
With the new year going steady
Feel like life is flying by
Something has me stop and sigh
Why am I here, what’s this life for?
Will I count, who’s keeping score?
A voice that whispered deep inside
Is so loud now I cannot hide!!!
I’ve been to Easton and I’ve tasted
A glimpse of me that I have wasted
A sadness in my stomach churns
With longing pain and fear that burns
See when I listen to my heart
I think I need a life re-start
And while it’s obvious to see
It scares the bejesus out of me
Disastrous fear-based thoughts of strife
To disrupt my comfy (boring) life
But what is still more horrifying
To live the life that I’ve been lying
Terrified? I am, and yet
I’m gonna grow a giant set
Putting self-doubt on the shelf
It’s time to believe in myself
I’ve gotta take a chance on me
To truly see what I can be
And yes, maybe I’ll risk a lot
It’s worth it to see what I have got
Who I can be, what I’ll create
I’ve still got time, it’s not too late
I take the deepest breath I can
And live my life from who I am!
Won’t you join me now Take A Breath and remember who you are?
