If our moments are forgotten,
did we really live them?
If our thoughts are in charge,
are we present at all?
If our breath is held,
is it really a breath?
I pause with these questions
and my ears open to the hum of my home,
and the song of the birds outside.
My vision is sparked by
the morning light filtering through the trees.
The glow is beautiful.
I notice that as I write,
my posture is hunched,
and I am tight in all the usual places.
I release the usual.
Relaxing and deepening awareness
of my breath,
and my gratitude for it all,
I begin again.
I am present and I live this moment.
Grace and peace find me
in the movement of my breath.
I am ready for the gift of another day.

Thank you, sweet Sis! xoxo
This perfectly fits my Tai Chi lesson today. We worked on breathing and feeling where energy is blocked. Breathing is so important for the flow of energy. 🤗🤗🤗
