Breathe

Take a breath! Walk slowly through a park with fragrant, spring flowers. Go to a library or bookstore and pick a random book to flip through. Stare at the sky and admire the shapes of clouds. Drive past houses and pick out features that you like. Purposefully slow yourself down and allow yourself to breathe. Life is alive with color, personality, tenacity, flavor, and hope. Moments of hope keep the heart beating. Everything is not terrible. Everything is not frantic. Everything is not falling apart.  Today is the first day of the rest of your amazing life.
