Oh, friend, deep breath. Some days just start out hard. Some of them end terribly. Many of them, lots of them, most of them are absolutely beautiful. Right down to their tiniest details. So, come on, slow, even breaths. Fill your lungs with peace and calm and strength, and breathe out all of that worry and fear and pain. Feel your body be rebuilt by good things, and each exhale takes away all of the bad. You can do this.
Dear one, take your time. Take all of the time you need. Healing isn’t a quick process. It’s slow and itchy. Trying to hurry it along won’t make it easier. Take your time. You have all of the time in the world. You can do this.
Deep breath. Slow, even breaths. Things may feel out of your control. Remember those tiny movements inside your body that are constantly going. Things you’ve become so good at controlling you don’t even notice anymore. Your heart beats. Your lungs fill. Your blood pulses. Your eyes blink. You’re constantly hearing and seeing and smelling. You’ve decided to ignore your nose completely, even though you see it. You are in control of each tiny movement. Deep breath. Focus in.
Deep breath. Slow down. Breathe. Take your time. There’s plenty of time. Nothing is certain except right now. You have right now. Use it. Breathe into it. Feel this moment. Hold this moment. It’s yours. Use it. Take your time.
