A New Morning

First of all, I want to congratulate Yoda of Hanford, California for winning the World’s Ugliest Dog Contest!! I wouldn’t say this dog is “ugly”…but it kinda looks like a rat. Scary.

For breakfast this morning I had a yogurt bowl.

Yes this is a recycled image, I didn’t have time to take pictures

The Mix:

1/2 cup greek yogurt

1/4 tsp agave (mixed into yogurt)

1/4 cup granola

4 strawberries

blueberries

Yesterday I was asked a question on my Q&A page (I still need lots more questions…post them on the page or email me at thatdeepbreath@yahoo.com):

What is your career field? Do you enjoy it? How does one take a “deep breath” when in something/and a life that they are not happy in?

I am currently a full time student. During the summer I work at a summer camp, and during the school year I work at an after school daycare program. I also have a volunteer job as a cheerleading coach to youth. I love it. I love children and honestly can’t imagine having a job where I couldn’t work with them. I am currently studying education to become an elementary school teacher in my future. I can’t wait to finally be done with school & start teaching!

I find that when I get stressed I just need to take a deep breath so I can think clearly. Sometimes problems are a little bigger than just breathing, so I think it’s important to find something that you enjoy & makes you happy. Whether it’s something little like a vase of flowers on your table every day or doing yoga a few times a week. Reading quotes also makes me feel better when I am unhappy. It makes me feel better to know that someone else has gone through something similar and it will get better. One of my favorites:

“Never let go of hope. One day you will see that it all has finally come together. What you have always wished for has finally come to be. You will look back and laugh at what has passed and you will ask yourself… ‘How did I get through all of that?'”

The most important thing to do is find something that calms you. Something that let’s your mind forget about all of your worries & troubles for even just an hour out of your day.

Keep those questions coming! I need to fill up my Q&A page & I love answering questions! Leave them as a comment or send them to me at thatdeepbreath@yahoo.com

I’ll leave you with something that always calms me & is my Deep Breath at times. I’ll be back later with a yummy vegetarian recipe!!
