    Change is the constant.
    Breathe In and then out again.
    Stretching high to find understanding.
    Cradling down low to feel comfort.

    Living as one called for a purpose.
    Laughing until you cry.
    Making yourself laugh when you want to cry.
    Crying your eyes out to a sad story because it feels good.

    Find joy in paying attention to others.
    Pause and breathe.
