I was reminded the other day that when you focus on exhaling, your body naturally takes care of the inhale.

Try it. Right Now.

Step One: Exhale as fully as you can
Step Two: Observe what happens.
Step Three: For comparison Now exhale shallowly.  Repeat Step Two.

Notice the difference? I can’t help but see the parallel with living a purpose-full life. When you focus on giving and putting yourself out there, the universe gives back.
