Slow Down.

Slow Down.

Just breathe and slow down for a second.

Watch the waves crash and feel the sand between your toes. Leave the laptop at home and your email notifications on your phone turned off. Sun bake in the steaming hot sun while sipping a cocktail by the pool. Because you’re allowed to take a second to enjoy a holiday you’ve worked so hard for.

Just breathe and slow down for a second.

Feel the butterflies in your stomach as you hold hands with the person you’re with. Enjoy the laughs in the moment and remind yourself that if its good right now, why rush it. You don’t need to justify it through social media or compare it with those that do. Because you’re allowed to keep some things private you know, just for you.

Just breathe and slow down for a second.

Put your feet up on the couch and switch the Netflix on. Embrace the untidiness of your home while everything else in your life seems like it’s a bit full on. The washing doesn’t need to be done today or those dishes left on the bench. Because you’re allowed to take a break to relax, from the busy days end.

Just breathe and slow down for a second.

While its important to have goals and something to work towards, your body needs a break from all the stress that you’ve caused. Don’t feel guilty for that leftover pizza you ate or skipping that cardio session you hate. You’re muscles are sore, you’re hungry for more and your eyes are barely open. Because you’re allowed to skip a day at the gym when you feel you’re barely coping.

Just breathe and slow down for a second.

Stop spending money on that dress or those perfect nude shoes. You have plenty hanging up in the cupboard and folded up too. When did it ever become a thing not to be caught in an outfit twice? Just think you’ll break your bank otherwise. Because you’re allowed to miss an event or two and still have a life.

Just breathe and slow down for a second.

Cancel your routine tan night, your girls night or that afternoon gym session. Spend time with those that you are binded by blood, for those are who matter the most. You’ll realise how precious and valuable one life can be and how they become your light. Because life is too short and time can’t be bought, so hold each other tight.
