Saying yes to swinging :)

Happiness Is Swinging

I’m trying to embrace and be

while holding on some more…

kinda like while swinging

I cling to the ropes while stretching toes to soar.

I’m wanting to breathe and know

that in this, my right now

the substance that is me comes with

into the next step along with another ask of how.

Its like I still need gentle reminding

we don’t lose what we’ve become

no matter the scene setting or view

the who we are cannot be run away from.

Yet even still tis true of me

at times I still resist the growth nudge…

defending what I insisted was the way to be!

yet not wanting to resist or hold a grudge.

Rather would I bound toward what is new…

upon hints of inner shifting

sensing change could build a bridge…

instead ofย  “whoa me- o – my I’m not ready yet, I’m still practicing!”

Seems growth invites us, like an unexpected guest

and who are we to say we’re not prepared?

when deep down we seek to nod and just say yes…

Oh to jump and leap and swing!!!

eager to shed outgrown modes and ways…

I yearn to be able

to ditch what ifs and surf the waves.

Yet unfulfilled yearnings cry, “what about us?”

tugging at me, fearing their neglect

and so again I remind them, “You come with me

and safe in my heart you will always be for there’s not a moment I forget.”

But for the right now…

something else is pulling…

something else I must do…

and so in my thoughts they’re safe

to continue to grow and bloom…

I’ve said I’m willing and I’ve clung to that hope…

yet sometimes when beckoned, “Come!”

I’ve answered, “no Tre, not yet, no way,ย  nope.”

This I know I must find a way

to give form to inklings.

Because so often I ponder indefinitely

as I’m oober good at thinkerings.

So a quiet promise will I make

to this little girl of mine within:

“Tre Tre go let yourself frolic and play for a time

you’re allowed to pursue these yearnings any which way

yes indeedy you are allowed to grin.”

 

Here’s to the living truer still to our hearts….and allowing ourelves to swing ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
