Being Patient with the Process

I painted an exquisite vision. It had dates, numbers, locations, times, and imagery all connected to the outcome. It drew me in, motivated me, captivated my mind. The slideshow of possibilities became my love. When time became tough, its' promises held me grounded like a strong root. But in the process of falling in love with the unseen, I forgot what was right here, right now.





Running, speeding down the track to be in first place, only looking to the finish line. My legs gave out and I went crashing down. I got so caught up, I forgot me. I neglected to take care of myself. I am here, I am living, renewed with every second. I am not my future, or my past, I am present. So I took a hot shower, clearing my head by focusing on the water hitting the pavement.  Breathe in, breathe out. Take one step at a time, no moment is promised.
