“Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Do Is Just Breathe…”


 After working incredibly hard for the last few months to get REES Capital launched, our building construction and renovation completed, and setting up our new offices with furniture and decorations and all the hoopla in order to be ready for our big Grand Opening tomorrow, I definitely needed to hear that quote you just read.  As I fall into bed completely exhausted tonight after all our hard work, still obsessing over every little detail we need to finish to have tomorrow be a big success, I needed the reminder that it is time to stop the obsessing and for me to just breathe and have a little faith! 

That advice doesn’t just apply to me and my life, it applies to all of you reading this blog.  All of us have those moments when we get so wrapped up in worrying and stressing and even downright obsessing and we all sometimes need the reminder that we need to take a deep breath and realize that once we have done the best we can do we need to turn it over to the Lord and have faith that everything will work out for the best.  No matter how many times I have seen that to be true, and I can tell you that I know it to be true 100% in my life, every now and again I find myself needing to be reminded of it anyway.  So I was grateful that the quote was brought to my attention today because today of all days I needed that reminder.  And for any of you that have been stressing over things in your own lives, hopefully my passing the quote along to you will help you in your lives as well. 

I do feel the need to apologize to any of you who have been emailing me the last several weeks as I have fallen way behind on my emails as we have been so wrapped up in preparing for our Grand Opening. Forgive me if I haven’t gotten back to you.  Once this event is behind us tomorrow I am going to do my best to go back and catch up with everyone. So forgive me and know that my lack of response does not represent a lack of caring in any way.

Tomorrow is a really big day for me and my partners as it represents the beginning of our Grandest Business adVenture to date! I love starting this new adventure with people I love and respect and I feel blessed that we get to spend our time doing the things we truly love, which is, helping other people to excel. It is a dream come true to focus my attention on fulfilling that purpose. I am so grateful that things have come together for this new business and I am really looking forward to seeing many of you tomorrow for our official Ribbon Cutting. I hope you’ll love the new office as much as we do.

Have a FABULOUS Friday everyone! No matter what is happening in your life right now, remember to just breathe and have faith that everything will work out for the best! And I am going to do the same 🙂

    I have to tell myself to just breathe SO many times in my life, more so it seems in the past few months. I really love reading your blogs, they are truly helpful and always seem to be just what I need on days when I am struggling.

    Thank you! 🙂

    We breathe without thinking, or do we? I get so caught up in the muck at times, then I realize I am literally holding my breath. This happens way to often. Thank for this reminder. I will take several deep breathes now, and I encourage everyone to join me. Thank you

    I love the quote. I was unable to read this until today and enjoyed it. I wanted to go to SL to see the grand opening and all I could do is just breath and let things fall in place… Hope the opening turned out awesome.
