Slowing Down

they help me heal, and remind me to rest

I am always on the go

There is always some new adventure lurking around the corner

Somewhere to be that I want to experience

Someone I want to laugh with

I never seem to have enough time

To firmly plant my feet into everything

Going from one thing to the next

But you can not always be moving

Every once in awhile you have to stop and rest

You have to sit and soak it all in

And when your feet are constantly going

And your mind is on to the next thing

You may have to be shaken and stirred before you realize

Your need to slow down

And that is what my body did to me

It brought me to a grinding halt

It forced me to slow down

To lay in bed




And after a few days of laying low

Letting my head rest on the pillow

Allowing my by body heal

I am starting to feel strong again

I know now not to let it get this far

Take the time to rest, always

My body needs it

And so does yours

So today

Put up your feet


Let your mind wander off to dream

And let your body heal itself

You will feel so refreshed afterward
