ten minutes every day to close my eyes & see what i feel. to try to disconnect the feeling from the story and simply allow the feeling to be felt. to recognize the tendency to suppress discomfort and to let it be, without needing to know why it’s there. to remind myself, again and again, of how i want to live. of my sole ability & responsibility to experience that life. right now. and to keep creating the time and space to be present and move myself forward.
