Life is constantly running around us; there is nothing anyone can do to stop time or halt anything from happening. It gets pretty chaotic and hectic at times. It sometimes even feels as if nothing could make life seem worse.
But there are those moments, through the most stressful times in our lives, that remind us that we can stop for a second and just breathe.
It doesn’t how horrible things can get; it doesn’t matter how many things can happen all at once because, in the end, it is all going to be okay.
Take a breath. A deep breath. Calm down.
Take one thing at a time. Take it one day at a time, one hour at a time, one minute at a time.
Things get out of hand and there are things that no one can predict before they occur, but what happens doesn’t matter as much as how you react to it. You can’t control every event in your life, but you can control what you do about it and how you react. And to do the best, to think the best, to react the best, you need to breathe.
Music. Talk to a friend. Go for a walk. Play with a pup.
Take a break. Take it easy. It’s going to be okay.
Life is going to happen, despite what we wish for. Things are going to happen, despite what we want. It’s okay.
