Breathe It In

Breathe it in,
everything around you,
the smell of nature,
the warmth of the sun,
the coolness of the rain,
breathe it in
You’re going to worry about work,
money, and material things
but nothing will compare
to how fast time will pass you by so,
breathe it in
The chaos you’ll encounter,
the daily grind you endure,

breathe it in
Even when the monotony
starts to set in,
breathe it in
All the wins and the losses
breathe it in
The time with your family and friends,
breathe it in
Every moment of your journey in life
breathe it in
Enjoy all the big moments,
but truly relish the small ones
because when all is said and done
when you look back on your life

you’ll realize they were all big things,
so…
just breathe it in


Pause…Breathe…Reset

Sometime when we are
stressed, depressed, worried or have anxiety,
being alone in our thoughts
can be unhealthy
So take a step back, breath,
clear your mind
and make it a point
to seek out family and friends
Spending time with them
will reset your perspective on life
and will help you gain insight
The wonders of
friendly advice, loving support and good laughs
will do your soul wonders
So relax, for it’s not the end of the world
You will get through it and
come out stronger in the end
with a robust confidence
backed by an eternal well of hope

What I’m Thankful For

Despite what a terrible year 2020 has been, I’m thankful that I got a chance to strengthen my relationships with my family and friends…even connect with long lost ones. It helped me to lean on them for support and I learned that regardless of what life throws at you or what obstacles arise, if we face it together…together we will persevere.

What Keeps Me Going

When life’s obstacles
put my back against the wall,
what keeps me going…
my family
When challenges arise
and I have nowhere to turn,
what keeps me going…
my friends,
When darkness overcomes me
and there’s no hope in sight,
what keeps me going…
my faith
When the road is long and hard
and I feel like quitting,
what keeps me going…
my confidence
Living every day
is another opportunity
for me
to go for everything
I want and dream of
So never give up
When life brings you down
ask yourself,
“What keeps you going?”
