From as early as I can remember, I was always on the move. Since the tender age of four years old, I was involved in, what seemed to me, a million and one activities. Everyday was a hectic blur of getting picked up, getting dropped off, eating in the car, changing clothes in public restrooms, running down the streets of downtown Boston, skidding into practice right in the nick of time…you get the gist. I cannot remember a single moment in my early years of life where I wasn’t finishing one project, starting the next, and getting stressed about whatever had to be done in the future.
But as I’ve grown older, I’ve realized that taking moments to sit, reflect, and just breathe is so important. And as I have taken more of these moments, I have definitely experienced just how beneficial they are to my mental health and sanity. This the entire reason that I have created this blog. This is a place where I can reflect on the bad, celebrate the good, release, relax, and unwind. A place where there is no worry and no stress. A place where I can breathe.
So I invite you all to sit back, relax, and breathe.
