From the time I stepped out of bed in the ICU after my transplant,
my central theme has been forward motion.
This concept served me well during my recovery and recent hep c treatment,
always keeping focused on putting one foot in front of the other.
Following an urge to be close to nature, today I sat in the garden breathing in the gentle scent of wisteria.
My eyes fell on a heron near the water, two Mallards came and sat near me, heads cocked.
Enjoying the scene, a wave of relaxation overwhelmed me.
Yet, my mind habitually raced to the next moment, the next place to go, the next thing to do.
A thought arrived on the breeze~
Now, I no longer needed to continue pushing forward.
With healing comes change.
Quieting my mind,
I feel at peace, in the moment.
