I was thinking about an earlier argument I had with someone. Thinking about them and what they can do to improve themselves, I had forgotten about myself. Turning inward, I watched as my breath flowed in and out. In this peaceful space, I was reminded that I am in charge of how I want to feel in any given moment. So, I let go of the image of the other person and trying to 'fix' them to improving my own state of being. By letting it go and allowing life to flow, I am once again able to be present to the joy-filled opportunities that are all around me.
