There are moments where I forget to breathe. Moments where I find myself softly saying “just breathe”. Next I take a deep breath in through my nose and exhale through my mouth. During that exhale I have a faint moment of relief. Relief from pain, relief from stress, relief from all doubts that consume every part of me. Once that moment disappears the noises comes back along with everything else but I keep going somehow. I keep going because I still remind myself to stop and breathe once in awhile.
