And I found that I can do it, if I choose to.
I can stay awake and let the sorrows of the world tear me apart and then allow the joys to put me back together, different from before, but whole once again.
― Oriah Mountain Dreamer, The Invitation.
No matter how busy or overwhelming life can feel, I choose to surrender.
I choose to create still moments of self-reflection and rest.
I choose to turn my face to the sun, close my eyes and breathe in its warmth.
I choose to place my bare feet on the earth and the early morning frost, as I remember the oneness of life.
I choose deep listening and become aware of every movement and sound and feel the birdsong touch my heart.
I choose to feel the void, the pain, the fears, or the anger and allow it all to be here.
I choose to connect and feel the fullness of this moment and emerge whole again.
