A reminder


Because some reminders are worth repeating:

Sometimes, when it all feels too much, you will find me here. Keeping to the shadows, breathing in the damp earth, focusing on the fallen beauty at my feet.

Sometimes, when it all feels too much, I cannot be here. Cannot be anywhere. What I can do though is close my eyes and remember.

Remember the cool of the shade on bare shoulders.

Remember the heady scent of the soil.

Remember the comforting ruffles of the camellia petals.

Remember to breathe.

And always, always, always remember that things do get better again.

Just in case you are in need of a reminder too.
