Being Honest


Preparing a class on satya,
I discover I’m growing tired.

And still I press on,
looking in book after book
for the perfect words
to resonate with my vision
of the class

But my body is tired,
and my mind is hazy,
and I’m not being productive.

The minutes stretch on,
even more tired now.

It was time to be honest with myself.
“Girl, you need to go to bed.”

“Okay,” I said.

  1. I love this – love the attention and care you put into planning your classes and love that you managed to put that perfectionism to one side and listen to the truthfulness your body was telling you!!
