Just for now ~ a New Year poem

Happy New Year.

Poetry. What are your thoughts?

I’ve never been much of a poetry kind of gal, but I think I’m beginning to become one.

The teacher for my 10-week Mindful Self-Compassion course reads a poem at the end of each session. Each poem she’s read has been beautiful and thought-provoking, but this week’s poem especially touched my heart. And I want to share it with you as we move into a New Year, many of us feeling self-reflective and cautiously hopeful for what the future holds.

"Just For Now" by Danna Faulds

Just for now, Without asking how, let yourself sink into stillness.

Just for now, lay down the weight You so patiently bear upon your shoulders.

Feel the earth receive you, And the infinite expanse of the sky grow even wider, as your awareness reaches up to meet it.

Just for now, Allow a wave of breath to enliven your experience. Breathe out whatever blocks you from the truth.

Just for now, Be boundless, free, with awakened energy tingling in your hands and feet.

Drink in the possibility Of being who and what you really are – So fully alive that the world looks different, Newly born and vibrant, just for now.

As we move into a new year, I am looking forward to serving, teaching, supporting, inspiring, and connecting with you.

Love, Your Wellness Coach,
