I may have already posted this. It bears repeating.

Walk Slowly

It only takes a reminder to breathe,

a moment to be still, and just like that,

something in me settles, softens, makes

space for imperfection. The harsh voice

of judgment drops to a whisper and I

remember again that life isn’t a relay

race; that we will all cross the finish

line; that waking up to life is what we

were born for. As many times as I

forget, catch myself charging forward

without even knowing where I’m going,

that many times I can make the choice

to stop, to breathe, and be, and walk

slowly into the mystery.

Hopefully this new format will hold me accountable to continue posting. I really do enjoy documenting and curating my favorite finds. I think sometimes I'll have round ups (like below) and other times I may just post a one off quote or recommendation. Happy reading/listening/eating/watching!
