Last week, I was driving home from work and my thoughts were racing a million miles a minute.  Every once and a while it seems like everything in my life-- whether it be responsibilities that need to be tended to, a marriage that needs more nurturing, a future that still has so many unanswered questions, or just a blog post that's been lacking my voice-- all seems to creep up on me at once.

This was one of those weeks.

While amongst it all, I find myself in more control by losing control; meaning, I let the storm run its course.  Sitting here at my desk tonight, I'm greeted by the familiar smell of my caribbean scented candle and I feel like the cyclone of negative thinking has lifted and come crashing to a halt.  There are so many great things happening lately, but I haven't taken a breath to notice.

Mindful breathing.

I know I forget often that a slow and steady pace always gets you to your destination,  you just have to have a little faith that you'll make it there.
