Breathe, Just Breathe

2020… I think most of us would agree that this year has been challenging to say the least. Because, hello? Global pandemic in the form of Covid 19.

It’s been scary, not knowing what is going to happen, not knowing if we, or our loved ones, are going to be affected.

It’s been frustrating, not being able to visit our friends and family. Not having the freedom to move around as we want.

It’s been lonely, not having the face to face social interactions that we as humans crave.

It’s been hopeful, seeing some countries begin to recover.

It’s been enlightening, being forced to slow down in a world that moves at a lightning pace, and actually think.

It’s been a revelation, that the things that we took for granted in the past, some of the most simple pleasures, like giving someone a hug, or spending time with family and friends, or taking a walk around the block, are the things that matter most in life.

It’s been a rollercoaster, as we jump from one emotion to another, as some days things seem to get better, and then other days it seems to go backwards.

But, friends, take a deep breath in. Let it out. And repeat.

This is but a moment in our lives, an experience that will shape us for the better or worse.

Breathe. In. And out. Repeat.

Take this time to be present in the moment.

Because this too shall pass.
