Go, go, go!
That seems to be my life lately.
No stopping to breathe.
Smell the roses.
A few days arrive in which I allow myself
To slow down,
Rest heals my body and the lingering cough disappears.
Rest clears my mind and I am able to think with more clarity.
Rest eases the stress:
I feel myself enjoying my surroundings more;
Taking pleasure in the everyday.
I know I need more time to wind down,
Do what my soul craves.
But like all moving in the rat race, I take it when I can,
Or when my body forces me to.
Rest and recharge.
Then continue with life.
