Right here

Make space and arrive...Spend some time with yourself...Right here and breathe

You and I, we have a special bond. More special than most. But when the world stopped spinning, you were one of the first I turned my back on. I have no idea why. I asked others why I couldn't find my way to you, why I stopped feeling you and our bond because I couldn't believe it. They said that maybe I needed a break from you, but I knew that wasn't right. I could feel what I needed breaks from and you were not it. They said maybe you and I find our way in community spaces, and right now, community is lost. And maybe that fits? So I tried in my own way to get back to you, and then I gave up and waited.

Once the world opened back up, you were the last thing I went back to. Again, I have no idea why. Once I found my way back in, I felt - shy, saddened, embarrassed, and sorry. I laid down at your feet, but you didn't flinch, you told me to rise.

I came with my tail between my legs asking for forgiveness, and you reminded me that it was not necessary. The bond is stronger than any break. And we immediately found our rhythm. You told me to rise. Spend time with yourself, find your way back, find your breath, and your balance. Feel the rise and fall of your belly, listen to the sound your breath makes, find a little quiet spot, make room, take up room, and rise.

Make space and arrive...Spend some time with yourself...Right here and breathe

You asked me to roll out my mat, sit down, close my eyes, place a hand over my beating heart, take notice of my inhale, and exhale, don't change anything yet, just notice. Start to inhale what you need more of, exhale what you came to let go.

And the exhale is releasing all the tension I've been feeling
On the surface and beneath me, I'm connecting to my spirit
And I'm here now right before you, present in this moment
And our life's work is to honor the beauty all around you

Then, you asked that I slowly come to my feet, and rise.
Make space and arrive...Spend some time with yourself...Right here and breathe

I immediately remembered us. I immediately felt us again. I was surrounded by what I needed more of, you. I let go of what I needed less of, insecurities, fears, and most importantly, tension. I followed my breath, I remembered to breathe. We moved together again. We found poses together, we found space. You asked me to take up more space at a time I shrunk to fit into boxes. You asked me to take up room, more room, and then, you asked me to let it go. You asked me to inhale more love, more self-awareness, more emotion, more of me. You asked me to just be. And then, you asked me to spend some time with myself and rise.

Make space and arrive...Spend some time with yourself...Right here and breathe

So, I found my way back to us, our bond, our love. I made space, spent time with myself, and rose.
