Just Breathe

I saw a saying this guy put on Instagram that said:


Breathe, it was just a bad day. Not a bad life.


It made me smile. Why? Because it is true. I just happen to have had a bad day that day I saw that posted on Instagram.


Signs Are Everywhere

A long time ago, I was told there are signs everywhere, we just need to pay attention. I come to find that saying is also true. I needed to see that breathe saying on Instagram. It was a sign I was paying attention.


How was it a sign? I needed to know that things would be ok for me. That saying helped me realize that.


Sometimes you just need to open your eyes and look around. You see what you need. That advice I got years ago that signs are everywhere, I try to remember that. I don’t always pay attention but sometimes I do.
