Have you ever felt as though the weight of the world was on your shoulders? The sun beams down as you trudge through the sand barefoot determined to reach your goal.  It all seems too much.  Have you had an experience similar to this one?  You fall…stumble to the ground and just as you give in and throw in the towel, a gentle breeze begins to blow ever so slightly.  It cools your face and gives you just enough shade to stand to your knees.  The cooling sensation provides the respite you need to plow through.  Look for your gentle breeze.  It could come in the form of a person, a helping hand, a smile, or a situation that gives you pause and the courage to handle your circumstance.  Recognize it’s the universe’s way of  encouraging you to go forward.  There is a lion inside you, allow him to shine through.
