Do you sometimes forget to breathe? I mean not forget, forget, but forget to stop….
To just breathe.
So why not now? Go on. Just stop. Just while you read this.
And breathe. Truly breathe.
Feel that oxygen.
Yes, I know there is other stuff in air but right this minute….don’t worry about that. Feel your lungs inflate as you breathe in air.
And now….breathe out.
Don’t forget to breathe out too.
You are alive. That’s all. You just are. You don’t have to achieve anything in this moment. Just this breath.
And then, this one.
In, nice and slowly
Out, release it all.
In this moment that we share right now, as you read and I write, feel the release of tension and the infilling of life giving air.
I think I’ll come back to this. Maybe you will too.
On our journey through life, being as brave as we can, in any given moment, it’s essential to just BREATHE.
