Restlessness

Hungry for nourishment, for change, for anything that swings the pendulum the other way

Yearning for home, for solace…

Anything to alleviate the sorrow that had robbed me of my independence and self-assurance

Unwilling to receive the gift of rest, love, compassion, and surrenderance

The fighter grumbles…

Blind to the possibility of surrendering the pain, anguish, and heartbreak…

Rather than being tormented by the past, surrender to the present

Sit still and listen to the breeze… feel the warm sun's rays

Notice when you find yourself pacing and

Slow down.

Sit in the discomfort

Remember, you are stronger than you think you are

Surrender to the unknown

And… return home
