Life can sometimes discolor our perspective from the shadows of heaviness or grief. It can take form through a sudden loss, a broken relationship or alterations of our hopes and dreams. When we’ve held our breath in anguish and pain, Lalah’s song reminds us of a simple but powerful process for healing – just “breathe”. It’s only in this practice that you make room for an atmosphere of peace that strengthens your soul. Just as you inhale in life, you must also exhale and “breathe”.
