It takes fewer muscles to smile than to frown. A smile is free. Happiness is a birthright.
Here is a breathing exercise from the handbook of Aparna Choudhuri:
Be the smile:
Breathing in, I calm my body
Breathing out, I smile
Breathing in, I dwell in the present moment
Breathing out, I know it is a wonderful moment
Be courageous. Love and accept ALL of YOU!
I just discovered a long deep-rooted samskara in my life! Samskara here is referring to a pattern in life. Once you recognize a pattern in your life, you can decide if you want to change that cycle or not.
We don’t always need to know what or why we are holding in our body. Feel your emotions, breathe and let go with love.
Within every one of life’s experiences, there is a flower waiting to bloom. How and when the petals open depends on you.
