"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 judgement 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."
