Life can get busy. Period. It just does. It gets hectic, even. And all of us have heard that refrain about the benefits of having a quiet moment for mindfulness.

Call it meditation or call it prayer, it can sometimes be difficult to find those moments of quiet. When we’re lucky (or blessed, depending on your perspective), we can find those quiet moments and gain some quiet space in our minds and hearts. But, just outside the door to that quiet space, the concerns of the day, the week, the world, our lives can sometimes loom in our thoughts, filling our quiet time with static.

I have to think I’m not alone in this experience.

So, what if we try something a little different. Rather than naming it “meditation” or “prayer”, what if we Just Breathe… What could happen then?
