In through your nose, out through your mouth. Slow, deep breaths. Control your breathing, first and foremost.

It was one of the very first things Shawn taught me. It's been one of the most important things I've learned. It's one of the things I forget most often.

I'm not very good at breathing, apparently.

When my body gets pushed, I forget how to breathe... or I forget to breathe, period. I start gasping instead, winded. Before long, I'm forced to stop, take some time to recover.

All because I forgot to breathe.

I'm the same way in my whole life. Right now, I'm dealing with financial stress -- again. And I can't seem to remember to breathe. I want to gasp for air, or hold my breath. I keep forgetting - in through your nose, out through your mouth.

This is another one of those bad weeks, when I can't see the sunshine for the clouds in my mind. I have a training session tonight - I'm hoping it will help. If not, Shawn might have a snotty, teary, emotionally unstable wreck on his hands. That'll be pretty.

Why does life always have to be so hard? Why can't we live in a world where, if you work hard, you get what you need?

Sorry for the grayness today, everyone.... some days are just hard...

I feel you. If it wasn't hard, it wouldn't be worth it, right?
