I remember two years ago my English teacher liked my verb repetitions: “inhale, exhale, inhale, and exhale”. It was short, it was simple, and it turned what was obvious into something else, something important. An important part of a story.
We don’t think about breathing, some of us may have never thought about it before. We don’t like to think about the obvious and simple things in life. Maybe that’s why life is so complex and twisted. We don’t take the time to think and enjoy the simple and obvious things in life. We’re always chasing after something less important, less valuable, less obvious.
Because we like complicated,
And we simply don’t have the time,
To take a deep breath.
That’s what we tell ourselves, and that’s what we’ll keep telling ourselves until the day we struggle to breathe.
I wish you all the very best, (and I hope you keep breathing for a long time)
