When was the last time you took a moment to recognize your ability to breathe? Became still, quiet, and just listened to your breathing? The God given breath that keeps us alive. When was the last time you recognized your heart? The way it beats when you’re calm. The way it beats when you’re in love, or the way it beats when you’re anxious. The beauty with every beat that keeps you alive.

We live in a hurry hurry and distracted society. Living in the bay area and working in Corporate America I see it daily. Everyone is driving over the speed limit, in a hurry to get everywhere and nowhere fast. People running to catch the 6:23 AM train, getting through the doors just before they close on their backpacks. Heads down, cell phones in hand. Laptops on, conference calls, meeting after meeting after meeting. I don’t believe the corporate zombies know how to breathe. They often walk around with the I smell shit face. I get it, it’s sometimes necessary, the hurrying, but there has to be balance.

When was the last time you looked in the mirror and admired your own beauty? The color of your eyes, the shape of your lips, and began to think about their function.

When was the last time you took a walk around your neighborhood or stepped outside and took a deep breath of fresh air? When was the last time you felt nature? Grass under your feet or hugged a tree. Stood in the rain and allowed it to cleanse you? Today while waiting on the elevator I noticed a beautiful flower so I snapped a picture.

We’re surrounded by beauty. If we take a moment to slow down and breathe, then and only then will we see it. Today, take a moment and get still, disconnect for a moment and just breathe.

Until next time…❤️
