Don't Forget to Breathe

Go on, right now, inhale…exhale. Inhale the good, exhale any bad. Release tension and bring yourself to the present moment. The sights, sounds, smells, tastes, breathe to feel. To centre yourself. To remind yourself. To calm yourself and excite yourself. Breathe to stop the flow, to start the flow, to change the flow.
Breathe to empower. To realise. To recognise.
Breathe to sing. And dance. And run. And hop and skip and jump. Breathe to take it all in. Let it all out. Spin it around, turn it upside down.
Breathe to show yourself. To know yourself. To let yourself.
Breathe from the trees. From the oceans. From the sun and from the moon.
Breathe when you come across. When you cross it off. When you cross. When you cheer.
Breathe to appreciate. To formulate. To ace and exasperate. When you're moving along. Moving on. Moving.
Breathe to balance. To still. Breathe through gritted teeth. Breathe out a smile.
Breathe to weaken. To build, breathe accretion. Breathe to soar. To search and to savour.
Breathe to define. To prove. To express yourself and connect yourself.
But most importantly, breathe for now. To happen. To be.
Take control by letting go.
Breathe to feel alive

  2. You're so talented, Vanisha!!! <3 Lately I definitely have to remember to breath for a while... Thank you for reminding, my friend! We all should just BREATHE!

    1. Ira! You flatter me! Yess it sounds so simple but it's surprising how much we don't! <3

    2. :-) So true... unfortunately! <3

  3. Love this :) and thinking about it, with how great it feels to just breathe, it surprising how much we don't! The only time I actually remember is when I'm not feeling well, I should definitely make more of an effort and incorporate it into my routine. This is so poetic, Vanisha, love the eloquence! x
