All will be well. This too will pass. Trust me.

When panic or worry steps in,
Stop.

Breathe.

Remember: this too will pass. You wait and see.

For now though, live life in the minute.

So stop. And breathe deeply.
Bring your head back to now.
Connect with your core.
Put your hand over your heart.
Pull yourself up tall.
Pull your shoulders back.
Breathe deeply again.

Smile. Yes smile. Fool your body.
Doesn’t that feel a little better already?

Whatever else is happening, just concentrate on making life as good as it can be, minute by minute.

All will be well. This too will pass. Trust me.

 

If I stopped

What would happen to your life if you slowed down for a minute, a day….a year?

If I stopped for a year
to read the classics
what would happen to my life?
If I stopped for a year
to visit art galleries or museums
would I ever work again?
If I stopped for a year
to dance and climb mountains
would the boardroom bell not sound for me?
if I stopped for a year to teach
would I learn who I was in the angry
eyes of our tender youth?
If I stopped for a year
could I feel the seasons change
and hear the ants talk?
If I stopped for a year
would I learn to breathe
and love the senses I have
long since forgotten?
If I stopped for a year
could I remember the birth canal
and the bright, white light called life?
If I stopped….
