Without hope we feel, and sometimes are, done for. If you are in despair and everything seems impossible, just STOP!
Do something, anything that moves you around a bit. Something that requires a bit of puff maybe? Then Take a deep breath, hold it and feel the tension in your body, then exhale slowly , deeply , sigh as you do it. Feel the difference.
Remember the last time you smiled or better stil laughed. If you can’t look at some photographs of better times. Know that nothing stays the same, EVERYTHING changes. If you are down it will lift at some point. It always does.
