The need to BREATHE

I am a Capricorn.  I looked up "Capricorn" and found we are perfectionist, usually ambitious and have a sense of purpose and a great faith in their own ability.  We are thinkers, and usually successful in business.  As a rule very independent and serious, beneath our reserve we are sympathetic to anyone who needs a strong shoulder to lean on.  We also have a striking sense of humor..I do like that part of me.

I find the astrological thing pretty interesting.  Then I read "Fear is at the root of all Capricorn troubles. It is necessary for them to chip away at those fears. They must try to be gentle with themselves, but do the work".  WOW, that hit home.  Lately I have been struggling with every letter in the word F E A R .  Thus my title, "The need to Breathe".  I need to do it more.  Thanks to my friend Kim for the reminder!  Take time.  Spend time with the ones I hold most dear. 
Be gentler with myself. 

So I am. wish me luck!  I will share some of my journey along the way.  If I am writing to myself, then that is okay too.  But if not, thanks for being here!  Taking baby steps this my flip flops of course!    

Talk soon and live colorfully,
