Praying Pause – Who do You want to be?

Listen to your life.
See it for the fathomless mystery it is.
In the boredom and pain of it
no less than in the excitement and gladness:
touch, taste, smell your way
to the holy and hidden heart of it
because in the last analysis
all moments are key moments,
and life itself is grace.
—Frederick Buechner

~ Breathe deeply…feel the air coming into your body… and going out of your body …

~ Breathe deeply into this moment … the only moment you are truly alive … the past is gone … the future not here yet… breathe…

~ Breathe into the pain and joy of your life… and into the excitement and boredom…

~ Breathe into your future self and ask yourself who you want to be at the end of this challenging time…

~ Breathe into the truth that how we choose to live during this global challenge is going to mold us into who we will be for the rest of our lives… 

~ Who do you want to be…?
