Today I stop and take a deep breath.
Life has been moving fast.
New jobs with increasing hours keeping me busy and paying the bills.
Social life with family and friends
Graduation party, family from out of town, night out on the town
Starting a new business, speaking, planning, consulting and coaching
Writing is grounding.
It is my meditation.
My centering source
Writing, right here, right now
Highs and lows
Diving into life with everything I have
Then slowly slipping down, loosing speed
I want to avoid the crashing
Highs and lows, ebb and flow
I can move through the ups and downs
As long as it is fluid and
Paying attention and knowing when I need to stop and pause
Step back, say, “no”,
And give myself some space to avoid overwhelm
Need to make time for exercise
Exercising gives me energy,
Restores my physical health
Writing recharges my batteries and gives me the motivation to exercise again
Tom Petty is alive and well
In my head…
You belong among the wild flowers
Far away from trouble and worry
You belong somewhere you feel free
Creating my life
Living my life
Making choices that serve me
Taking care of my needs
Family life and personal life
