slowing down

Forced to slow down

Take a step back

Sit, and just breathe

Allow this moment to be

I am constantly on the go

From here to there

Always moving

Rarely taking a moment of stillness

But here I sit

Feet up, heart open

Soaking it all in


Learning that I need to listen

To my heart

My body

My mind

Learning to rest

Not try to get it all done

Allow space

Let time pass

Breathe deeply

Heart expanding

Hopes and dreams filling my head

As I stand back on my own two feet
