Whatever your trouble is, take a breath. It doesn’t have to be deep. Just breathe.
Not two breaths. Just one at a time.
That breath can be the hardest work you’ve ever had to do.
As an infant, it’s your first breath outside of the womb. For others, it may just be another morning. Or maybe it’s the last breath you’re going to take.
The courage comes and you do it. Because that’s what we do. We breathe and move forward. Wherever forward is, it’s where we’re going.
And you’ll never get there until you just take a breath.
