I will take life….

I will take life and say, “yes” to it this week…
By returning again and again to the breath filling my lungs
By noticing the transitions, the “between” times
Returning again and again to the awareness that as my life is flowing along
—a stream of time, of movement, of happenings, of encounters—
that there are moments when a twitch of my fins can send me down a channel that I choose.

That I have the chance to choose

—again and again and again—

instead of being simply pulled along by the current.

I will take life and say yes to it this week
by choosing
and choosing
and choosing

  1. Hello Pam,
    So nice to see a post from you. I love your words. Some days, I have no clue how to say “yes” and often it feels as though there is no choice, but after reading your post, I feel differently. Even if the feeling is small, and even if it only lasts a short time, it is something. It really is something.
    Hugs to you Pam,
    Andrea

    • Hey Andrea
      Oh thank you so much for this. Makes me glad that I decided to post this wee thought.
      Yes – even for a moment… it really is something.

      Be well. ~p
