  • How long can you hold your breath?
    You are underwater, You are calm
    Your eyes are close
    You are listening to you lungs
    It is a quiet moment, magical actually
    You feel weightless and free

    That is how i feel when I am in a transition phase
    I hold my breath and close my eyes
    Waiting for the next big thing.

    Have you felt the same way?

    Between jobs, Waiting for a phone call, a letter, forgiveness, gift,a college application...

    You experience a moment of calm and serenity

    Then you start releasing the bubbles

    You are on the verge of panicking and getting agitated

    You have waited too long
    You are exhausted and drained

    Doubt is settling in

    Well let me tell you
    You are not alone in this
    I am holding my breath next to you

    You can do it

    You can see this situation through.

    Keep Faith.
