Sometimes it is hard not to get swept away in all the chaos and movement of our days. It can be hard to break away for the simple pleasure of being present and rejoicing in doing so.
It is far easier for me to sink further into the fissures of my mind than to break through the surface and come up for a breath, a break, and a time for me to enjoy just being.
I can blame my jobs, my course load, my upcoming exams, etc. but really, it is only me who is preventing me from stopping for a moment’s respite. Me, precluding myself from enjoying all that there is to wonder, see, inhale, imbibe, awe at, laugh over, smile because, etc.
I am making it my priority to be a more conscious creature, a more active soul, an embracer in a sea of avoiders.
