All my life I’ve been looking for “the key”.
– the key to unclogging the bottleneck of my life
– the key that will open doors to potential
– the key to unravelling puzzles
A key is a very small thing that opens up huge possibilities that were closed before.
Davene Januszewski has written a blog post about a few such keys, only she called them the Top 4 Mind Mistake That Screw Up Your Life. I was well aware of three of them — negative thinking, emotions, and not being in service — but #3 was a real Aha! moment for me.
Not breathing? Who doesn’t breathe??
But as Davene has pointed out, so many of us don’t breathe enough, or we take such tiny, shallow breaths, that how can we possibly live and grow?
Years ago, when I was in a choir, I was taught to breathe through my diaphragm. How could I have forgotten so vital a lesson as that?
Think about it. If you don’t breathe deeply enough, oxygen isn’t able to reach all parts of your body and brain. And chances are, you are also not taking deep cleansing breaths that are so needed.
Breathing… such a small thing we seldom think of it. Maybe you’re thinking it’s too trivial to mention. Yet it is the key to physical and mental health, and growth as a person.
What keys have you found in your own life, to help you surge forward with clarity and energy toward your goals?
