Thanks for humoring me with reading this.
I understand your day, your life, is filled with so many, many things that call for your attention and presence.
My hope is for you to recognize this as well and remember to take some time for yourself.
I’m about to ask you for a few things…
Take a good breath.
Relax your shoulders – bring them down.
How do you feel right now?
Go ahead, really think about it.
What do you hear right now?
The whir of a computer?
An unintelligible garble of others’ conversation?
Music playing for someone else’s ears?
How neat to be exactly where you are.
To be experiencing what is right now, for you.
It’s all yours.
No one will ever exist in the way you are right now.
You are here.
Here, you are.
Thank you for being.
For being exactly as you are. With your quirks, your perceptions, your kindness, with your energy put into what catches your fancy.
Thank you for bringing something so unique to the world.
Perhaps you’ve never purposefully meant to, but know you impact the world, every day.
I’d ask you to remember this and find a smile because of that knowledge.
Thank you for your time.
Thank you, for you.
Take care of each other, dear hearts, and take care of you.
