Let it breathe

There is a term in broadcast media.

Let it breathe.

It’s fancy journalism talk for shut up and let the event happen. Let people feel the environment and make their own visuals.

What if we all did that more?

What if let it breath instead of trying to figure it all out.

We read blogs and websites. Read more. Use less technology. Pray more. Meditate more. Exercise more. Eat better. Talk less. Talk more.

We spend so much time figuring out our next move. We spend so much time figuring out how to feel.

I spend so much time sorting through my emotions. Overthinking things. Talking them out with friends.

I’ve always got to find a trajectory or come to a conclusion.

Can I just let it breathe?

Can we all just let it happen.

We’re all more connected than ever. Yes, we experience new problems that other generations did not.

However, that doesn’t mean we need more pressure on ourselves to figure it out.

We don’t know. Most people don’t know.

We’re all just figuring it out. Faking it until we make it.

Let’s take more time to breathe.
