"Step back and consider a broader perspective in life. Breathe and absorb the many layers of our humanity; the multi-tier experiences impacting us all as individuals and yet seamlessly stitching us together. Consider the many people your gender, your age, around the world experiencing vastly contrasting traumas, joys, and lessons at this very moment. This practice calms my inner monologue, and I feel lightened and revived; it allows me to feel connected and included in a narrative a movement that is bigger than myself." - @masielalusha.
