Any walk in the woods will reveal gorgeous life all around you, but also fallen trees, decaying trunks and rotting leaves. It’s not just life and death at work, rather, life and metamorphosis – the old giving birth to the new. In your stillness today, walk through the areas in your life that seem to be breaking down. Visualize yourself deeply breathing in creative clarity, fresh ideas, strength and courage. Exhale panic, fear and regret. Again….and now again… Let today and this coming week be different. Step into a new approach with new potential. Consciously and prayerfully breathe renewal into every thought, every decision, every emotion, every relationship. Change your heart, change your life.
