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.
