2 steps back.
6 bold, sure steps forward,
14 steps back,
Notice the frustrations, the anger, the disappointment, the self criticism, the self violence…
40 big beautiful strides forward!
legs knocked out from under me with force and smashed onto the ground.
Notice the discomfort, the pain, the agony.
Notice the 40 Steps!
running forward with All that I am,
blown by the hurricanes and storms, back to the beginning and beyond.
Noticing the call to give up.
Noticing the Determination and Courage to ignore the call.
To always ignore the call to give up on Life.
Celebrate all that has been.
Welcome all that is.
half a step forward,
Slipping backwards over the perilous icy cliff.
Tumbling down down down down down.
Wipe off the blood,
Tending the wounds.
1 gentle step forward….
1 tender step forward..
1 aware step forward.
1 loving step forward.
1 allowing step forward.
1 Warrior step forward.
Rest, celebrate, breathe, center, recharge.
And another and another and another.
1, 2 or a million steps back.
It doesn’t matter so much.
The unfolding is perfect.
The movement is allowed
the annihilation is allowed.
Pain may exist, suffering is optional.
No comparison with what I’d prefer.
No comparison with others.
These are My Steps.
All is LOVE.
All is Well.
