Remember to Breathe

I can feel it coming… the tension, the pressure, the mounting confusion.

And then it passes.

But before I know it, it is back again.

Stress. Tension. Confusion.

Deep breath.

Headaches, body aches, fatigue.

Deep breath.

Expectations. Broken promises. Unrealized dreams.

Deep breath.

Commitments. Engagements. Tasks.

Deep breath.

It begins to be difficult to breathe.

Guilt. Shame. Fear.

It suffocates me.

And then I breathe, and I remember who I am.

  1. You captured my world. A girlfriend had to remind me “breathe Dan” and it was the first time I realized I held my breath during tension!

  2. I just heard an awesome song last night on a TV show that I had to look it up, it was called Breathe by Alexi Murdoch. The words were amazing…
    keep your head above water and don’t forget to breathe…
