Welcome to Write Your Vision!

Deep down, most people have dreams - they may be forgotten, unspoken, or unrealized - but they are there. I want to help you remember and believe in them again...

Step 1. Find the Time...

We all use the excuse: "I don't have time to..." but today challenge yourself to take just 90 seconds at any point in the day and just BREATHE.

Allow your mind to rest.  

If you determine in your heart that you are worth that, you'll find the time to do it.  It's only 90 seconds.  About the time it takes you to read this post.

That's the first step in figuring out what you want... your vision.
Pretty simple.

Would love to hear if anyone can actually DO it??  :)
90 seconds to just breathe
    nothing more...

I did it today. But I have some
questions, Should I be still and stop thinking while I do it? and Should I do it everyday for the rest of my life?

:) great question!!

Taking 90 seconds just to breathe each day is something I think every one should do at least once a day every day.

Yes, be still. Stop thinking for that time. Allow yourself to 'do nothing' for that moment. Just to focus on breathing.

It's the first step...

I'm still doing it once a day; it is not that easy to empty my mind but every time that I start to think I stop myself and go back to my empty mind.
But I have more questions...

How many steps are there?

When will you give us the second step?

Do we need to be able to be still and without thoughts before we can move to the second step?

Why 90 seconds and not other number?

I know too many questions :)

Seven steps :)

No not necessarily although learning how to just be still will help with any other step as well as your overall happiness.

90 seconds is a start. It's easily do-able. Most people struggle to sit still, let alone BE still for less than a minute. Achieving a minute just isn't enough so pushing through just a little further teaches us how to push past what we think our limits are or should be... subtly.

Hope that helps!

And THANKS for your comments and questions!
