Taking a Deep Breath

It’s morning, and my toddler is still asleep. I watch him sleeping soundly, breathing deeply, and I am grateful for him and for this day that I will spend with him. I smile.

And then, I become aware of my own breathing.

I inhale.

I exhale.

I smile again.

There really is something so powerful in taking just a few seconds to concentrate on this thing we all do, all day long, usually without giving it a single thought. Inhale. Exhale.

So many of us are caught up in a million things each day. Regardless of what any of those particular things may be, regardless of who we are or where we are, I love that we can all do this same thing and find a moment of peace, a moment of gratitude, and feel the joy of a smile on our face.

I wish that for you today.
