i have to be. i must find ways to be slow and deliberate about my days.
when i walk upstairs i watch my feet...because i'm running from
task to chore to work to dreams to beauty to frustration to exhaustion.
today my body felt it. exhaustion. i felt it coming on last night after
an intense week and an emotional weekend. so much good is filling my cup...
and it's overflowing. sometimes i really don't know what to do with it,
and it feels strange to have so much at my fingertips--to be so close
to what dreams are becoming.
today my body felt it. today it reminded me that even dreams need to
take deep breaths. even opportunities need deliberate attention.
time is on my side. truly. take a step back. honor it all. stand in awe.
because, this, all of it, is kind of amazing--discomfort and all.
today my body reminded me to celebrate all this goodness slowly,
to cultivate it, to give it the patience it deserves, to watch
and pay attention.
deep breaths. eyes closed. deep breaths. eyes wide. deep breaths.
today my body felt it.
