This breath is my first step.
"It is enough right now to taste one moment of peace.
Of course I want more, but at least thedoor is open.
It is enough to draw a conscious breath and let my hands relax, fingers releasing their tight grasp on things outside of my control.
It is enough to shed a layer of stress as if taking off a jacket or a pair of too tight shoes.
Ease of being has to start somewhere.
This breath is my first step."
