BUnplugged: Breathe

BUnplugged

Breathe

Spring Afternoon
Spring afternoon on campus at Belmont University in Nashville, Tenn. February 10, 2017.

 

Breathe. You’re going to be okay. Breathe and remember that you’ve been in this place before. You’ve been this uncomfortable and anxious and scared, and you’ve survived. Breathe and know that you can survive this too. These feelings can’t break you. They’re painful and debilitating, but you can sit with them and eventually, they will pass. Maybe not immediately, but sometime soon, they are going to fade and when they do, you’ll look back at this moment and laugh for having doubted your resilience. I know it feels unbearable right now, but keep breathing, again and again. This will pass. I promise it will pass.

— Daniell Koepke

 

In the midst of the busyness of mid semester, don’t forget to take care of yourself.  Remember that it’s ok to take a break, take a breath, and then step back in. You are more resilient than you think!
