I am grateful for breathing...who isn't? But because I can breathe, I can take a deep breath now and then and start again. Try it. Stop what you are doing, sit comfortably, close your eyes and take in a deep breath. Hold it while you cound to five or ten and then release it completely. This is when you should feel it. It is like a new start, fresh. Somehow whatever was troubling me or stressing me out, seems not so overwhelming. It is like a new start. A rebirth. A deep breath can restore resolve, peace of mind, calm. Try it now and then. I think you will find you are grateful to breathe (of course) and for every deep breath you take.
