Steady Breathing

It's amazing what the human mind can do.

Your brain can make you believe running 26.2 miles is do-able. It can cause you to discover new truths and question past assumptions.

Our minds control every aspect of our lives. Who we love, like, talk to. Whether we try, quit, or endure. The dialogues we conduct in our mind, day in and day out, shape our reality.

Do we believe that ANYTHING is possible? And if it is, are we personally capable of achieving anything?

Some people believe in miracles. They just don't believe miracles happen to them.

Others believe that human individuals produce the  "miracles" by "blessing" themselves and passing it forward to others.  But what it really boils down to is...

What do you believe?

Not the heeby-geeby believe. The what-do-I-say-to-myself-every-day believe!

The "I can get out of bed 10 mins early to meditate" believe. And the "My children will succeed" believe. Or the "I love my family for who they are, not what they do" believe.

I'm working on the "Forward Progress!" believe. The "I'm tired, but not enough to quit" believe.

Because I know that as long as I'm steady breathing I'm getting closer to my dreams.

And that's what I truly believe.
