Do you sometimes forget to breathe? I mean not forget, forget, but forget to stop….

To stop

To pause

To feel

To think

To be

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.

Just breathe.

Did you?

Do another.

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.

I’m Sarah, and just like you, I’ve had to be brave. So here we go. My stories, my journey, my laughter and my tears might all rate a mention. But most of all, if I look in the mirror, I want to remind her, She is still Brave!
