Starting at 22 years of life, may this be the mantra.

often, we become consumed with routine and movement. about next steps and five year plans. and while these maps are essential for our understanding of placement on this little ol’ globe. there is something quite incredible about stillness. about taking the time to listen to our breath. the rise and collapse of our being. there is something worth holding onto when we recreate moments of gratitude and laughter and achievement and safety. when we allow tears to bathe us into a soothing embrace. yeah, life can be really difficult sometimes. i have crawled into the cave of my mind and made home of it. i know what the dim light can foster. it can knock courage from our wind. it can make love incomplete. but there are moments, small miracles, we are built upon. take with you all that is a good song. my friends, i tell you, everyday is yours.
