Liz’s Sun

purple doorI went back through the early days of Liz’s Letting ME Be. She started her blog way, way back on July 24, 2005. I don’t know if history was recorded back then. She started with a post that created the heart of a blog, around which her name has become as well known and comforting as a bloggers gets.

That first post was called, Breathing Room. It included a wonderful line at the end, which I have pasted above my screen to remind me everyday.

Sometimes I have to remind myself to breathe.

I need to find more ways just to be. Not a philosophical search for existence, “to be or not to be,” but ways to set down my cares and breathe in a bit of life. My soul needs airing out now and then to fill itself up again. Unlike my body, it can’t get by on peanut butter sandwiches and milk. It needs trees, flowers, and the night sky, especially the night sky—stars to wish upon and space to let my mind wander aimlessly.

When I give my soul a little breathing room . . . everyone I know gets nicer.

Though it’s a post, and not officially a comment, this little gem deserves to be in the Glittering Commentari.

  1. Dear Sweer David,
    Thank you for reminding me that I need to give myself a little room to breathe. I’m breathing better already. 🙂
    You are the best medicine for me.

  2. mmm…when i read the last sentence suddenly all the resentments and worries loosed up and disintegrated.

    Life and people seem so wonderful once again.

    Gosh, its so easy to change my world…when i know that “when I give my soul a little breathing room . . . everyone I know gets nicer”.

    What more can i say,

    i am breathing in love and breathing out love.

  3. Thank you David, for directing me to Liz! I’ve just discovered blogging and feel this is the best possible therapy for me. Do see if you can help me sort myself out! I shall go thru your blog, too – promise*-)
