Be the Light

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

Be the light, see yourself in others and show them love.

Inhale Light, Exhale Darkness…
Inhale Sight, Exhale Fear…
Inhale Love, Exhale Hate…
Just Breathe


Paralyzed by Fear

We can often clearly see fear paralyze those closest to us. We see them stuck in situations, in sickness, in sorrow…in what they perceive as safety because they are afraid to move toward the unknown.

As difficult as it is to watch, we can’t free others from their fear.

Freedom from fear is an inside job.

“When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.” Psalm 56:3 NIV

Inhale Light, Exhale Darkness…
Inhale Sight, Exhale Sightlessness…
Inhale Love, Exhale Fear…
Just Breathe

Everyday Superwoman

I often say women would rather be called the B-word than selfish. But the unrealistic expectations we put on ourselves to meet the sometimes imagined expectations of our various roles sometimes becomes too heavy a burden.

Yet we keep shouldering on until our bodies are broken, our spirits shattered and we’re left disconnected from the very people for whom we sacrifice so much.

What if there was another way?

When we accept others’ freedom, we don’t get angry, feel guilty, or withdraw our love when they set boundaries with us. When we accept others’ freedom, we feel better about our own.” ~ Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend, Boundaries

Inhale Simplicity, Exhale Burdens…
Inhale Freedom, Exhale Burdens…
Inhale Boundaries, Exhale Burdens…
Just Breathe
