Keep that up.
Wait up for the moon sometimes or get up early to see a sunrise, just because you can.
Jump in the lake. Run, skip.
The things you need to feel alive are free and all around my friend.
You just have to see them.
Let in opportunity and say yes to the invitations that scare you a little, in a good way.
Say no to some of the things you force yourself to do, knowing they rinse you of your peace.
Life was never supposed to be a waiting room, it was supposed to be a hillside,
with paths leading in every direction and mountains as far as the eye can see,
hiding adventures and new friends behind them.
Don’t let yourself get to the end of this ride without having stopped to smell those beautiful roses.
That’s the only thing you need to fear in this life.
Everything else is all part of it.
It’s all just a messy, complicated, beautiful and terrifying part of it.
Chin up, throw your arms wide open.
and let it be so.
when I remember my own simply ways…
inquiry for today~ and this too belongs….
And be kind.
You don’t have to prove anything.
Rinse in the shower with cold (tepid?) water holding in mind the cool lake …
or rest in the woods behind our homes, reminding us of the deep forest moss……thanks g.f.s….
