slowing down

Forced to slow down
Take a step back
Sit, and just breathe
Allow this moment to be

I am constantly on the go
From here to there
Always moving
Rarely taking a moment of stillness

But here I sit
Feet up, heart open
Soaking it all in

Learning that I need to listen
To my heart
My body
My mind

Learning to rest
Not try to get it all done
Allow space
Let time pass

Breathe deeply
Heart expanding
Hopes and dreams filling my head
As I stand back on my own two feet

I found myself taking a deep breath just reading this post.

What a wonderful reminder during this hectic season! I might just have to put my feet up now!
