Enough

Elbows-
on the table
glow of the screen
socks kicked off
at the ready.

Here I hunker-
there you hunker
down
keeping
the in in
the out out.

Even when-
upset
uncertain
scared

We
are still here
gravitating to
the same place
the same space.

In this moment –
I can’t promise
anything
neither can you
nor they.

Things-
everything
shifting
changing
evolving.

Yet-
in this moment
as I belly up
to the table
socks near
my feet

Elbows-
on the table
ink dancing
on the page

It is enough.

In this moment-
I am enough
doing enough
so are you
so are they.

Sunday Reflection Quote…Just like that, we’re all getting schooled. Ironically, while we try to flatten the curve, the learning curve is insanely steep. The levels of adversity we’re experiencing as individuals and as a collective spans a continuum. The end points unknown. I’m reminded we all perceive and process adversity differently. Each predicated on prior experiences; each equally valid. Here’s to acknowledging the difficulties, shifting gears, and pressing on.

Sunday Reflection Quote…Whether on a micro or macro level I’m reminded mindset is key. The onslaught of negativity and entitlement can be a powerful magnet; required to be repeatedly rebuked. Over the years I’ve worked incredibly hard to reset my mind, heart, and body. I refuse succumb to temporary pitfall pulls. I’m reminded choosing to be reflective, positive, and strong is my wellness path. Here’s to adding without apology and staying in my lane.

Sunday Reflection Quote…Whether the past is an hour ago or decades, second thoughts only begets guilt or regret. Whether observing others in a superficial or competitive light, comparison only begets inferiority or envy. I’m reminded neither living in the past, nor observing others is conducive to creating value. Here’s to honoring gifts of the present and fostering happiness.

Sunday Reflection Quote…My mantra for the new year is stand up; speak up. As an awkward wall flower and under the radar doer, I often encounter a challenging balance. I have ideas and suggestions, but tend to remain silent taking the path of least resistance. The fear of rejection or ridicule engage as a gatekeeper. Interestingly, the last couple weeks have been peppered with opportunities to speak up. I’ve jumped off the precipice and raised my words. There has been a smattering of push back offset with appreciation. I’m reminded not to take the apathetic passive path. Here’s to elevating my words, asserting my stance, and finding comfort knowing flowers will bloom.

Sunday Reflection Quote…It’s the time of year for resolutions and/or goal setting. For the first time ever, mine are written out, posted on the refrigerator, and shared with only one person. Cuz human, it’s easy to make excuses, point fingers, or quickly dismiss. Discipline is the challenge. To grind when exhausted, downtrodden, or disheartened is the ultimate self-test. I’m reminded there’s only one person we answer to; one journey to navigate. Here’s to crossing the bridge over and over and checking off those accomplishment boxes, no matter how small they may be.
