I don’t want to hurry awake because I want to remember my dreams
I don’t want to jump into my routine. I want to bask in the joy of the new light of day
I don’t want to hurry through feeding my furry family. I want to savor them savoring their meal
I don’t want to be distracted when I am listening to someone. I am honored that they trust me with what is important to them.
I don’t want to skimp when feeding the squirrels and birds. I want to gift them with the experience of abundance.
I don’t want to hold back when sharing truth. I respect everyone too much to dilute myself to appease them.
I don’t want to diminish my experiences or other people by throwing labels on them. That is one step away from dismissing them.
I don’t want to run through life blindly because I don’t want to miss one opportunity to give solace, an insight, or a kindness when it’s truly needed.
I don’t want to cross over thinking that I could have loved, healed or shared more than I have.
I don’t want to leave anything of myself on the table. I want to melt into love in all moments.
