Presence -

I read yesterday that when we are "rushing" we are not in our body.  I have been noticing how much I am rushing, already ahead in my mind to the next thing.  When I was in chemo, often just brushing my teeth was an accomplishment.  I was "all there for it," present.   Now, I am thinking ahead, planning my day, trying to see how much I can cram in.  And with that philosophy, it is hard for it ever to be enough.

So, today, once again, I set intention to return to my breath, feel my feet on the floor, and relax my jaw.

Enjoy the breath and the ease found there.  I look out and the fog is clearing.   May my mind do the same.
