Calm Smile


Breathing in, I am calm.
Breathing out, I smile.

After a few rounds like that, it simply turns into:

Inhale, calm.
Exhale, smile.

Over and over. Like a song.

I do not think this mantra needs much explanation. On days I reach for mantra, there are a handful that I choose from. When I have lost my smile, I reach for this one. 

Inhale calm, exhale smile.
