This morning I woke up
and I was already going a million miles an hour.
I jumped out of bed and took the dog for a walk
I unpacked and then repacked
I tidied up and rampaged round the house looking for things to do.
And then I remembered to breathe…
I sat down to meditate
I had to force myself to sit
For some reason I just couldn’t be still
But in that stillness, sat quietly on my bedroom floor, I found peace
I heard my family waking, and I heard the birds outside
I felt the sun creeping through the window to touch my skin
I felt my breath and I felt myself come back to the present moment.
After 30 minutes of sitting I felt so grateful to have taken the time
to just be.
Sometimes we are go go go, yet are we really here when we are rushing so much?
I like being busy, I like being productive,
Sometimes I really have to force myself to sit and meditate everyday
Yet each time I do, I come back to myself
I feel the sensations on my body and I feel the fact that I am alive
I remember to be grateful and I remember to smile.
Take time each day to be present
Take time each day to be aware
Take time each day in silence
Be here, Now
