Let Life Show Up For You

I am left speechless

and I don’t know whether to laugh or cry

at the way the world shows up for me

when I show up for the world

as it is beyond my understanding

How these little things

impact me so largely

And intensely

Taking my breath away

If I just let them

All I have to do is let them

I get to show up for this life

I get to

I get to say hi to the animals that roam around my neighborhood

Including the lizard that crawled out of my book

And the sea turtle

That gave birth

Under the full moon

Last night

They remind me to love free

And how deeply

We can communicate

Without words

And I notice

I notice how the flowers bloom

After a weekend of rain

As they dance

Under the sun

That feels brand new

Reminding me

To live each day

And each moment

As its own

For isn’t that life?

A series of moments

Strung together

Like string lights

How they shine so brightly

Even on the darkest nights

If I just let them

All I have to do is let them

The avocado

On the side of my coffee mug

That reads “serenity”

Reminds me

How life fills me up

So deliciously

If I just let it

All I have to do is let it

And I laugh to myself

At all the times I drank out of this coffee mug

Feeling anything but “serene”

For this life

Has quite a sense of humor

Or I just let it

All I have to do is let it

On my walk

I passed the same

Beautiful blue house I always do

But tonight

I looked inside the tall windowed walls

And saw a family

Eating dinner together

I melted

As I was reminded of

The overwhelming power of connection

And love

This experience we call life

Has the tendency to do that

If I just let it

All I have to do is let it

The questions

whirling around in my head

Living a beautifully orchestrated

Trail of fear

Reminds me that I am alive

That I am starting something new

That I am taking chances

The nervousness

Which never fails to graciously greet me

Right outside of my comfort zone

Encourages me

To do my due diligence

So I can show up

For this life

To the best of my abilities

And the rest

I give to the universe

To work it’s magic

As it always does

If I just let it

All I have to do is let it TC mark
