Taking Time To Breathe

With so much going on in my life right now I'm struggling to find the space to just breathe. 

In, out, in, out, in, out

And even when I do catch some time it is like watching time fall through my fingers like the way the sea moves past my body as I walk out into the surf. Where do you begin to look for the space to breathe? 

I've found it in strange places: the utility room, on the swings, talking to the loveliest homeless woman on the way home from work, while sat drinking flat whites and green tea, just inside the front door. All of these places aren't new to me, they just happen to be the places I find the most peace. Where nothing reminds me of him, where I can breathe freely for a moment before my brain begins to start again. 

XO, Miriam

  2. I think we all need to take a minute sometimes. We live these crazy hectic lives in which we're running from one thing to the next without so much as taking a breather. I know that sometimes I feel as though I have so much on all I want to do is sleep! xx
