Somewhere, once upon a time, amidst the flowery part of the internet, I once upon a time stumbled across this quote and happened to save it to my iPad. If you follow me on Instagram @flea143 you will have already seen it; but if you haven’t here it is again.
“Tomorrow I have 2 weeks and 2 days until I move onto a new chapter in my life. I am excited for the new venture but petrified and sad to be saying goodbye to the past 5 years…. Which has been the majority of my ‘adult’ life. Work – who would of thought it would ever mean so much in my life? Haha. Teenage me is laughing at me right now. Sometimes, I really hate being a “grown up”. #thistooshallpass #breathe“
I can’t remember when I came across this message or why I decided to save it, but I believe past me was looking after future me. I was going through photos the other day, it hit me, like a ton of bricks. It’s a simple mantra, and holds so true to a turbulent time in my life right now. I think, in its own little way that it brought me some peace of mind.
So, the moral of the story is to not let yourself forget to breathe.
