Thoughts from a wise flower on May Day.

Life is a marathon.

There is no shame in walking. 

I used to run. But after five years, finally decided to be honest with myself. And my hips.

I don’t like to run.

So now I walk. Big deal. The whole point is to move your body. 

So I walk fast.

And fairly often.

Give yourself a break.

You cannot do it all. But you do have something important to offer.

Do what you CAN do.

Get help with what you cannot physically (or emotionally) do. Let the rest go.

Be the person you were created to be.

Imperfections and all.

This weak, but wise flower called “Resting” has a story to tell. You can read it on my website at
