Pause And See

Standard

Little, simple things,
such a precious gift:
the routine, the calm,
the boring, the repetitive,
how we long for this now
as it all disappears, temporarily.
I’m hoping we all seize this opportunity
to slow down and go within
and remember what’s important to us,
what we neglect in our habit of unconsciousness.
Let this be an acknowledgement
of what is always waiting
for this moment when we pause
and finally
see.

Ready for the Journey

Standard

I did it.
I made it.
I survived.
I dropped my kids off with their dad,
hugged them tightly
and trusted it was safe to let them go.
I went to therapy.
I got myself some noodles for dinner.
Back home
I took care of myself.
Got my house in order.
Chose to pack lightly.

Now I’m ready for the journey.

*************
I decided to take a break from blogging and any other daily activities that I can let go for ten days.  I need to see who I am outside of my routine and what can arise in the space I create when I let go of my habitual modes of being. Wish me luck!

I’ll check in when I get back home at the end of this month. Best wishes everyone. Deep breaths.
