Packing for trips often takes me waaaaaay longer than I feel it should. I seem to be so slow to accomplish what I set out to do.......yet quite fast to stress about it!
Tonight, as I pack for a week in several different places, with quite different needs and preferences, I am reminded (by the tag on my teabag!) of something I know well; and yet in thiiiiiiis moment of packing and planning, I welcome the reminder newly into my body.......
Nature does not hurry,
yet everything is accomplished.
I am breathing slowly, feeling my body move from one decision to another.
My anxieties rise, fall and then quiet to a whisper.
I spend a little time writing this entry and settle into a new rhythm as I continue with my evening....
