A Moment of Stillness Stop whatever you are doing for 5 minutes. If you can, go outside and find a place to rest in the shade, if you can’t step outside sit next to a window. Sit in a comfortable position with your feet firmly placed on the ground or floor. Now take a deep breath, and slowly let it out. Take another deep breath and slowly let it out.

May the blessings of this moment stay with me throughout all of my encounters as I go about my life this week
