I am trying to listen to my body more. Listen better.
I have done a pretty shit job in the past. Taking it for granted for most of my life, until it started to groan and plead for rest. For love. For peace.
Today it said, don’t speak so much. Don’t strain to keep attention. It’s okay to lie in bed and just…not. It’s okay to just be. Without any of the preconceived expectations of the world. It’s okay to not fit into the mold of what others think. It’s okay to stand in the shower and let the water fall across you. To seek solace in silence.
And today, I listened. As best I could. It wasn’t perfect, but it was better. And that’s all I can hope for.
