Breathe. Do it again.

It doesn’t have to be overwhelming to ask ‘what is it I want right now’.  Adding ‘right now’ to the end makes it so much more palpable. Attainable. If I say ‘what do I want’ there is this whole vast abyss of monumental desire in multiple ways at work, home, in my relationships as  a mom, daughter and sister, in relationship with others close to me, etc etc. But to say ‘right now’ changes everything.

Right now I want the focus and clarity to do my job well as it is today.

Right now I want to feel grateful for my home- its warmth, its safety, its familiarity.

Right now I want to be able to accept others as they are without judgement or wish to change them.

Right now I want to see, feel, smell and touch all the lushness around me.

Right now I want appreciate all these same things within me.

It occurs to me that this is enough. There doesn’t need to be more. I don’t need to worry about then, when, how or someday in the future.  Is it not true that all we really have is right now?

What do you want right now?
