On my mind...

rain, coffee, thunder, words
it's always days like this that make me think the most
introspective, reflective, thoughtful, and as deep as the puddles
there's something silly about sunshine, 
fickle and fleeting
dancing behind the clouds and calling it quits as soon as evening rolls around
rain though, he's dependable.
a steady stream that seems to say
"I'm in it for the long haul."
of course there are stray showers,
summer storms that materialize and vanish just as quickly
but my kind of rain lasts all day 
& isn't scared off by the dark of night
and streeeetch. deeps breaths. mindful. present.
the more i do, the more i want to do
accomplishment breeds accomplishment
from cleaning my closet to vacuuming my car
running a few miles or reading a few chapters
i can't help but feel energized by the accomplishment
no matter how big or how small
"dream big, but start small..."
but where to begin?
compass, atlas, new directions...
forging a path, blazing a trail
progress change growth
but don't be afraid to sit and stay for a while.  
so much to look forward to, so much excitement, 
so much work
so much love.
soak it all in.
but first... shower
your turn. xo
