I got these questions from Danielle’s blog Underland to Wonderland, where I came across a post in which she talked about the website Thought Questions and their 365 thought-provoking questions to ask yourself. My friends Katrin, Celeste and Jasmine have also been answering these questions, so be sure to go check out their blogs too!
Day 37: When was the last time you listened to the sound of your own breathing?
Probably this weekend, when I finally got a chance to sit out on the porch and enjoy the sunshine and peace and quiet. I think sometimes it’s healthy to do nothing for a few minutes, and just focus on the moment. You appreciate the little things, like your breathing, the smell of dirt, the feel of sun on your face, and the far-off sound of cars on the street.
Of course that moment quickly passed once my neighbor turned on the stereo and started blasting out Pat Benatar’s greatest hits. But it was nice while it lasted.
