I gave myself an unexpected gift today
It cost nothing but patience and introspection
It had been some time since I opened up my head
To receive the lessons that one can only unearth
When you say “no” to pings and “yes” to prayer
“No” to calls and “yes” to callings
“No” to distractions and “yes” to darlings
“No” to surfing and “yes” to serving
Turning away from all screens
Looking directly into another’s eyes
Being in the moment
Why do we choose in our painfully brief lives
To fill the gaps with meaninglessness?
Overflow them with mindful abundance instead
This is the ninth (#9) in a series of 100-word posts I plan to write.
My ultimate goal is to create 100 of these 100-word posts in no set time frame. Thanks for following along!
