It’s been a long day


It is not always clear
these days whether between here and there,
I am supposed to break or
hold the line.

  1. It’s true, it is not always clear. I find when I am patient, sit with it and listen, I know. 🙏🏻

    • You and Prendergast….

      Your body responds immediately to your thoughts. Sensing your body is another easy way to detect your core limiting beliefs. The mind likes a simple yes or no, yet life presents itself in endless shades of gray. A creative response will be nuanced and unique for each situation. If we are unsure of our next step or puzzled by something, it is good to slow down and check inside for guidance. I have learned that there is an art to sitting with a question that catalyzes the emergence of a deeper intelligence.

  5. Well, if one takes away ‘supposed to,’ life opens up like an endless road.

  6. One must at times, sigh deeply, gathering. Seek and engage, finding a point of release, enabling breath and move forward into the daily, unknown…
