(New Post) #MondayInspiration – “Free Fall” By Mark Nepo

The lesson that I’ve been taught and slapped in the face with multiple times this year is “to be present and just live” . Literally this lesson has come to me in every form that it can this year and I still manage to forget and get re-reminded all over again lol.

Yesterday I was watching “Super Soul Sunday” on OWN and the featured guest was poet and author Mark Nepo who has an extraordinary story and spirit that I was very inspired by. Oprah asked him to read one of his poems, “Free Fall” and it pretty much summed up the continuous lesson that I needed to learn this year, to be present and just live. I wanted to share the poem with you guys and give you a little bit of inspiration to start the week and to remind you as well to be present and just live! Enjoy the poem and have a great week!

Freefall

If you have one hour of air
and many hours to go,
you must breathe slowly.

If you have one arm’s length
and many things to care for,
you must give freely.

If you have one chance to know God
and many doubts, you must
set your heart on fire.

We are blessed.

Every day is a chance.
We have two arms
Fear wastes air.

 

Speak Your Mind
