Whisper this to yourself.
Tattoo it on your heart.
Forget your tangled thicket of thought. Forget your confusion, and your doubt, and your fear.
Forget all that isn’t you…
Follow your breath through every step of its journey. Accompany it as it enters your lungs. Feel yourself expand, bigger, bigger, so much bigger than what troubles you.
Revel in its fullness.
…and let go.
Fill up. Let go. Repeat.
Such is the rhythm of healing.
Honor your pain. Honor your anxiety.
But do not, under any circumstances, believe them…
…and never, ever, become them.
