Just breathe.

Danielle (Drew Barrymore) in Ever After had it right – Just Breathe.

Sometimes life feels like it is going to hell in a hand basket.

Just breathe.

Sometimes life is flowing along beautifully like a stream after a warm summer rain.

Just breathe.

Sometimes life throws curveballs.

Just breathe.

Sometimes life is wonderful.

Just breathe.

No one knows what will happen tomorrow, next week, next year – not even within the next few minutes. But I think we tend to get so caught up in life, in all that is going on that we forget to breathe.

Forget to truly breathe.

I am by no means telling you that breathing will fix whatever may be going on. Taking a minute to breathe may allow you a chance to think, to calm, to rationalize – to just have a minute for you.

Just breathe.

Sometimes we forget to breathe. So much heartache. So much excitement. I know I sure do – what with all the working, wifing, mothering, etc. I forget to breathe. I need to remember to take those moments because that is all I get at times. Just moments.

One moment to breathe.

Because learning to take that moment might lead to taking more moments which we know we all hope will lead into being able to enjoy life that much more.

I’ve learned over the years just how precious life is, how we need to try our best to enjoy it as much as possible – through the good and the bad, the great and the devastating – because no one knows what will happen within the next few minutes.

Let’s not look back and regret, let’s look back and smile.

Taking a moment might be what you need to calm nerves – whether from nervousness or heartache.

If life is going along smoothly for you, you should still take that moment to breathe – to enjoy what life has offered you, to enjoy life.

Just breathe.

In.

Out.

One.

Five.

Just breathe.

It is crazy how just taking the time to breathe, something so simple – for just a moment can affect us. We may not stay that way but it allows us a moment.

It allows us a chance to pause, a chance to think, a chance to evaluate, a chance to remember, a chance to breathe.

No mater how your life may be going – we just all need a chance to breathe.

Just breathe.

Breathing will not take away the bad days, it will not take away the good days – it is just allowing you a moment for you.

We need those moments.

We need moments for us.

Just breathe.

Slowly.

In.

Out.

Slowly.

You deserve a moment to just breathe.
