Poem: The Now Life©

Before-word: Some days are hard. You don’t want to get out of bed; and when you do, you wish the day was over. Lean into the cause of dismay/hurt/pain. Honor the emotional place where you are. Validate your feelings. And know that it’s okay to not be okay. When I’ve looked retrospectively at my hardest times, I realized they were just before some of my greatest achievements. Everything feels difficult when you’re about to level up. You have this moment … LIVE LIFE IN THE NOW!


Life

You’ve thrown the yin-and-yang

Of tears and laughter

Of sorrow and joy

Of downs and ups

Of heartbreak and heart-whole

Of sickness and health


Through it all you revealed ME to myself

My strength

My vulnerability

My resilience

My truth

My authenticity

My bounce-back-ability


Trade, I would not, your offerings

Accept, I have, good and bad

Prepared, I am, to live life wholly

In such a time as

NOW
