Just Breathe


You wake up, stare at the ceiling, thinking this is not where I want to be. I don’t want to get up. I don’t want to go to work today. I don’t want to do anything but lay here. Curl up inside your sheets as though they might protect you from everything you are hiding from. Sigh, you know what you have to do.

Head held high, dressed for the day, outside you look all put together. Inside is mush and you just float through the day hoping no one notices the truth. That no one can see behind your eyes to hear what your heart is screaming.

This is how you make it through the days. Day by day its just gliding, robotic, doing what is necessary but not fully present in the moment. Its completely understandable. You have been through a lot. Who else wouldn’t be just like this?

You aren’t really awake if this is how you are living. Just take a deep breath and step outside the shell you’ve created again. It wont help you. It will only isolate you from what you want so dearly. Breathe. You can do this. Remember, you are more. You deserve the life that you want.

Are you willing to go after it?
