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.

It’s August, do yourself a favour, be a rebel and slow down, right now its a lazier time for most of nature too. Slowing down is a conscious choice, not always an easy one admittedly, but you’ll see and appreciate so much more – and it makes you less stressed and more happy.
