Mantra Monday

This is a photo my daughter took while we were zip lining in the rain forest of Costa Rica.

This activity is not anything I wanted to do, nor would I let her do it alone.  So while my heart wanted to explode and my knees where shaking, my strength and my mantra was, “JUST BREATHE!”.

I knew we were safe, I knew this was temporary, and I knew I could use my breath to keep me as calm as I could be in that moment.  AND….I was even able to enjoy the last two sections!

When I look at this photo, I can recall the thrill of the adventure and the immense beauty that surrounded us.  I will never be the same as I was before I took that leap….
