“365 Days of Mindfulness” [Day 27] I Am Learning To Live My Life Gently…

I am learning

to go slower

to be softer

to listen more carefully

to let go of plans and dreams and hopes and

just be.

I have been very afraid,

I have had a very hard time trusting,

but what other choice do I have

but to live my life

and keep inching

forward?

There is only one direction

to go

and only one moment

at a time

to live.

I embrace

the snail’s way,

I will move

so slowly

that my fear

will

run past me

(Fear is always

in a hurry.)

and I will sit here

calmly

and

watch

it

go.

What

will happen

in the end

is not

my business.

My business

is

to stay

right here

in this moment

where I am safe.

I am

sitting here

tonight

breathing my way

through fear

that is moving

through my body

down to my toes

and settling in

a little ball

in

my stomach.

I will

put my

hands

on my belly

and feel

the gentle waves

inside.

I am

alright,

right now,

and that is all

I need

to know.

I am learning

to live

my life

gently.

It

is

time.
