Day 4 – Living Abroad in the DR

April 10, 2024

Waking up to little critters who lost themselves in my makeup bag of all places. Moved him/her back outside. My new normal living in the countryside. I’m settling in…slowly. ???? Love S❤️

It only takes a reminder to breathe,

a moment to be still, and just like that,

something in me settles, softens, makes

space for imperfection. The harsh voice

of judgment drops to a whisper and I

remember again that life isn’t a relay

race; that we will all cross the finish

line; that waking up to life is what we

were born for. As many times as I forget,

catch myself charging forward

without even knowing where I’m going,

that many times I can make the choice

to stop, to breathe, and be, and walk

slowly into the mystery
