i’ve adapted to a slower pace of life and the sudden change of not having many expectations on me. it’s been much needed – time to travel, heal, spend with family and friends, adjust to a new(ish) country and city. but life is slowly becoming busy again with studies and a new job. i look back at who i was two years ago and think, “i could handle so much more then,” and i start to feel a little guilty. but life has this way of slowing us down in ways we didn’t want or even think was possible, for the betterment of us and those around us. i begin to feel a little panicked at the possible pace of life shift, but then i remind myself to breathe. one day at a time. that is enough for me, at this moment. music like this helps me to do just that.
