Time to breathe

Everybody needs to take time to just breathe. 

Time to do that is in short supply with most people. I get that.

I've learned if I don't carve out [demand] time to breathe, I don't have the ability to contribute to other people, conversations or situations in a beneficial way.

Realize that most people don't have anyone standing in line to command them to do this. Usually you have to demand it for yourself. And that's okay.

It's really one of the most unselfish things you can do because unless and until you do it, you don't have anything to offer a world in need.
