Again I learn..
Learning to not react
To my own thoughts and feelings,
Learning to not react to others,
Has been definitely an ongoing,
Lesson laying presently at my feet,
And on my plate..
It’s quite the challenge,
Especially now more so than any previous adventure,
Adventure as in as we grow and our bodies change,
As we age, old lessons,
Reemerge, to teach us once again,
How everything becomes more sacred,
Like our peace, like our atmosphere
Inside and out, like our environment,
Who we let in, who we let go of,
Because what we were used to,
No longer serves us any good.
The amount of psychological burdens
We carry take its toll on our health,
So much more than we thought we knew,
Or could manage..
My health is too sacred,
Too significant to tolerate
My own ruminating,
Let alone deal with others
Negativity and toxicity,
To preserve my peace,
To protect my peace,
Honoring what has changed within me,
Learning to not react,
So my anxiety doesn’t knock me down,
Is at this very moment my challenge,
My purpose, my passion and my path…

May You honor how you have grown,
And allow yourself to honor,
Where you are now,
In wholehearted celebration of good,
Rather than nit pick it and destroy
What your whole health could be, can be, will be.
By learning to not react,
And learn to let go of what does not serve you well
In your own mind, and body…
Living to honor it Daily or moment by moment..
