sometimes it is easy to forget that Today is really all we can count on. it gets incredibly heavy to live fearlessly each day. one visit to the oncologist, one swollen lymph node masquerading as a lump, one odd blood level. all these things can shatter my super hero exterior and cause me to take off my magical flying shoes and walk on the earth again. don't get me wrong, i am fine. it's the powers needed to reign in the stray germs of fall and low potassium levels that are wearing me down. it is easy to let my mind rush off to the worst possible outcome of the most minor inkling.
and, in order to create balance i try to find moments of quiet. best gotten hold of in the morning when the day is still new. when i can parcel out the blessings onto my scale and admire them. when the mere act of breath coming in and pushing out is miraculous enough to swell my heart with quiet joy.
Today is enough. Today is all i have. Today. Today. Today.
i will celebrate this day with a headache or without. i will find joy in Today even though i have to clean my studio. i have a studio to clean Today and that is excellent! Today i will put down my super hero shield and know that i am enough.i will not let fear win Today. i will be strong Today for myself and for so many who are still fighting. i am lifting you all up and sending you so much love.
