Just Keep Breathing

Take a breath. Do you feel that? The way your lungs inflate with the oxygen that fills them upon inhale? Hold it for a moment. Now, let it out. Feel your body change as the air is released.

Do you know what that is? That breath, and all others you take, is life. You are alive. And sometimes, that’s enough. You don’t need to be rich or famous or the smartest person in the room. You just need to be, and to keep being, and that is ok. I know it’s hard sometimes, and I know it hurts sometimes. I know you don’t want to move from bed, or that the weight of everything feels like is crushing you. I know you might feel weak, or powerless, or a failure. Sometimes you mind makes you feel those things, and it’s ok to struggle and to feel the way you do. So long as you don’t give up. Because the world needs you, even if you don’t feel like it does. 

Just keep breathing.
