Growing pains,
I’ve felt them.
Emotion rising.
Exhaustion, overwhelming.

When the body heals, it is an open channel.
Vulnerable.  Weakness comes before strength.
Tears.  Softness.  But underlying gratitude.
I am thankful.

I trust in this process.
I trust my body.
Because I know without any doubt,
That my body is always the last to catch up.

So I stop.
I turn inward.
I listen.
And I BE.

Sometimes the hardest thing to do,
Is the thing we need the most.
When slow doesn’t come naturally,
A little necessary force can make it flow.

This is healing.
This is an awakening.
This is a new chapter.
This is self-care on a deep level.

I rest.
I sleep.
I write.
I reflect.

I stretch.
I expand.
I sit with my discomfort.
I open my heart.

My eyes may be tired,
But there is a spark of inner knowing.
My mind may be exhausted,
But my heart is full.

I stop.  I rest.
Just for now.
Because tomorrow is a new day,
And a new adventure awaits.
