I recently had a really clear instance of being triggered by the memory of a bad experience. And because our bodies can’t always tell the difference between a thought and reality, my body reacted as if it was happening in real time. In an instant, joy and hope were temporarily replaced by despair and fear.

Temporary because I recognized what was happening and quickly took action so I wouldn’t get stuck where I was. After some prayer and deep, deep breathing, I was able to get to a state of equilibrium and peace. For that, I’m so grateful.

Life is a creative process and our thoughts, beliefs, assumptions, choices, actions, and words are the tools that we use to invent our experiences and our circumstances.” ~ Katherine Woodward Thomas

Reflections With Renita


When I forgive, I free others and myself from past behavior, mistakes and regret. I’ve found that forgiving benefits all aspects of my life… from my relationships, and my health to my ability to focus energy on what I’m here to do.

Forgiveness removes hurt and resentment and allows me to see clearly to a much brighter future.

When you forgive you don’t change the past, you change the future.” Rev. Mark Anthony Lord

Inhale Forgiveness, Exhale Victimization…
Inhale Freedom, Exhale Blame…
Inhale Future, Exhale Past…
Just Breathe
