Just Breathe


“You’re only here for a short visit. Don’t hurry, don’t worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.”― Walter Hagen



I love beautiful things  

The flowers & trees, birds singing in the breeze  

I can really get caught up in nature & all its splendor…

When I take the time to just sit & wonder


Life can sometimes get so busy & crazy,

It can be rather difficult to slow down & just be lazy

But I challenge you today, take some time to refresh…

Slow down & just take a breath


Breathe in the freshness of life…

You’re still here, so there are many reasons to fight…

Fight for your peace, your joy, to maintain your sanity,

Don’t just do it for you,

It will benefit ALL of humanity


So, pray for strength to repel life’s stress…

And slow down, & take a rest.  

Look up at the sky, the birds, the trees…

Be thankful, be free,

And Just……Breathe ©2016  J. L. Hunt

    Your nature inspiration is very nice.
    Congratulations on being Danny Ray’s featured blogger. I was his featured blogger too. Maybe you can check out my blog if you need a blogging tip or two. That’s what I write about.

  6. I feel better already! I agree with Michelle – the delivery travels at such a nice, meandering pace, I feel like I’m floating down the river with a tall glass of iced tea!! THANK YOU, and keep up the good work.
