I Accept All That is Offered

804

There is a sadness that pervades my soul

A time of energy that sits in the balance

I can’t put my mind on the cause

There is no apparent reason for this feeling

Nothing that jumps to my thoughts

I know from past experiences

That I just need to ride it out

I need to sit with it and give it

As much honor as I can

Not every thing in life has to have a reason

Not every question has to be answered

So I sit and I breathe

And I let myself feel this feeling

Open arms I welcome the sadness

I sit with a cup of tea

And quietly

No pressure

I let it know that it has the time

And the opportunity

To be what it needs to be

I let it know

That I won’t try to control it

Or change it

Or question it

I will only allow it

And, somehow

In writing these words

And feeling these feelings

I can sense a shift

One corner of my mouth turns up

As my face adopts

A knowing glance

As my heart

Pours love

Freely

I

Accept

All

That is

Offered

Blessitude

My healing journey on the continuum of "It's all wrong" to "It's all right!" I love art and the creative process, reading, writing, and playing tennis.
