2 Minutes of Peace

This is, admittedly, a terrible video. Nothing happens. The view is lacking. The quality is lousy. But you know what? That's the point. See, the two minutes of peace are for you; they're not about the video. It's not about being entertained.

You see, I was sitting, watching the rain just now (and now you see what I see from my living room), and I felt such peace. And I thought you might like to feel it too.

So take two minutes and just breathe. Quiet your mind as best you can, and if you can't, don't worry about it. Just give yourself two minutes of peace. From everything. Let it all go for two minutes. Don't worry, you can pick it all up on your way out if you'd like. (Feel free to leave it, though.)

Close your eyes if you like, and listen to the (faint) sound of the rain. Or listen to your breath instead. Or keep your eyes open if you're more comfortable that way. Whatever you choose, just be sure to give yourself two minutes of peace. It's the shortest, most wonderful gift you can give yourself right now.
