The author’s feet in hammock in Powell, WY, USA

I breathe,

Dropping my shoulders down and relaxing my jaw.

I breathe,

Rolling my head from side to side and shaking out my joints.

I breathe,

Tightening and releasing muscles.

I breathe,

Acknowledging my thoughts and feelings and remembering they don’t define me.

I breathe,

Leaning back to find support in your everlasting arms.
