I realized that I needed to just take a deep breath, keep breathing, and try to live in my present. By breathing and being present in each moment is the only way to get me through these times. There are so many things out of my control and all my worry and stress is not actually bringing me closer to any solutions or alleviating my feelings. The only thing I can do is take each day as it comes.

Throughout pregnancy with yoga and in labor all anyone tells you is to breathe! We anxiously wait for our new baby to take that first breath. Everything comes back to breathing. Maybe life is like yoga and we have to breathe to ease ourselves from one position or moment to the next. Or perhaps life is like contraction pains and we have to breathe through the pain to get us to the ultimate goal.

Come not between the dragon and his wrath. Did I have wrath? I wasn’t sure. Did I have anything?
