waiting to exhale

You get what you have been waiting for and suddenly you’re in some foreign land you didn’t know you had plans to visit.  You’ve been holding your breath so long that you don’t remember how to breathe.  Do you hold your breath and then scream, or do you exhale as you’re trembling and try to take another breath without screaming because screaming is actually limited in the effectiveness it produces?  If you don’t get this breathing thing under control you’re going to make yourself sick.  Oh wait…you already have.

You did what you had to do to get yourself to here.  It’s alright to be angry now.  Let yourself feel it, and don’t mistake the emotion for weakness.  Breathe with it, through it and for it.

Just breathe.  It’s finally over.
