Don't Forget To Breathe

 Men for the sake of getting a living forget to live.
-Margaret Fuller

Don't forget to breathe!

Aren't we all dog tired when the week has finally comes to an end?
We work to make a living. We work to put food on the table, to get ourselves a decent place to live in, to feel normal, to belong.

But what keeps you going when the going gets tough? When your stress level gets too high and the people around you become unbearable, why can't you quit?

It's so easy to give up when you have no reason to hold on to begin with. It's easy to walk away when there's no reason to stay. But if you have a goal, you have a direction. You know why you do what you do. So you give yourself a time to breathe. You know you have to.

Being too busy makes you forget what's important.
You lose your focus on your emotional why.

Breathe to remember:

Maybe you're a traveler and you still have 10, 20 or more places to tick off your list.
Maybe you're the breadwinner and you can't quit because too many depend on you.
Maybe you want to put up your own business and you're going to need that start up amount.
Maybe a member of the family is sick and you help support their medication and treatment.
Maybe you want to go back to school and it feels inappropriate to ask your folks to pay for your tuition.

Or maybe you know you're blessing people with what you do and you've found your purpose.
Lucky you.

Whatever your reason is, don't forget to breathe.

Breathe, because you deserve to enjoy life.

Breathe, because your hard work will all go in vain if you're too sick to enjoy the fruits of your labor.
Breathe, because not everyone's blessed enough to be where you are. 
Breathe, because work is not the be-all and end-all of life.

When things go crazy and you're too exhausted to go on, don't forget to breathe.

  1. Yay it's Friday! Even being self-employed, I still get that Friday feeling. Breathe, chill-out, relax. Great advice!
