I miss out on opportunities to play and to be myself.
I miss the sensation of the wind blowing in my hair.
I miss the beauty in my daughter’s smile.
I miss the beauty of what it feels like to be in my body.
I miss the sensations of my breath ebbing and flowing.
I miss the beauty of the setting sun as it drops behind the horizon.
I miss the beauty of being present in this very moment; the sweet smell of the rose misses my awareness.
Recognizing that rushing only causes me to be frustrated without improving my outcomes, I now choose to approach this life differently.
Just for this moment, I choose to feel my feelings to their fullest, to breathe in and experience all of the beauty that surrounds my being. I choose to be present in the now. The gifts I receive are infinite. I am grateful for my freedom to choose differently.
