be here, now

This week I read a beautiful ,brief meditation from Thich Nhat Hanh.  
Take one breath to let go (of all the emotional energy that is crowding your mind and body)
Take one breath to be here  
Take one breath to ask, “Now what?”  

It is  portable, 
        easy to remember, 
        clarifying when emotional memories suddenly descend upon us and 
        compassionately gentle to a grieving heart.  

We don’t have to travel this entire journey toward wholeness today . . . only take the “next step”.
