Take a Deep Breath

Take a deep breath .... and relax.  This card was inspired by my own life recently and it reminds me to keep breathing and let go of all the stress we put on ourselves. I hope it inspires you to close your eyes, take a deep breath and let go of todays problems for just a moment.  Allow yourself for some creative time, it will put a smile on your face and help you relax, it works for me.
