Every so often, I will stop for a breath; remember people I should forget less often, gather thoughts that have been unattended and then let out that breath, to float my memories into the breeze. My grounding is simple, effective and it endures my irrational fears. At these times comes understanding that life itself, continues to dwindle and be unapologetically short; how dare I, of all people, spend a single moment wasting it.
These times are amongst the most important. I inhale a new breath, pass thanks for the people before me, those that have travelled with me and those I’ve still to find, then, I take a larger stride forward, with such a great smile.
