Breathe. Let Go. And remind yourself that this very
is the only one you know you have for sure.
-Oprah Winfrey
There are times when things just get to be too much, too stressful, too painful, to the point of feeling like someone is standing on my chest. I find myself at times holding my breath - with too much on my mind, unable to sort through my thoughts, and having to remind myself to breathe. It seems like such a simple thing, it is inherently programmed into us and should not require any thought. But it is as if I am waiting for something to change, as if when I release the air from my lungs the tension and stress and pain will leave along with it.
There is something in nature that reminds me to take a breath. The beauty, the ease of which plants and flowers move, the consistency through which they grow & die and repeat the cycle again and again. I am reminded to take a breath of fresh air, admire the abundance of beauty surrounding me, and that life is a cycle of ebb and flow. Nature forever be my muse in photography and in life.

  1. Thanks for this reminder Chels! So true. I even said to a friend today that I feel most at peace outside in nature. It makes me sane! :)
