the beauty of taking one's time

"Balance" is currently at a firm status of Testing And Learning. I have well missed the mark several times, landing on both the Somebody-Come-Play-With-Me and the Get-This-Girl-Some-Sleep ends of the spectrum. Most recently it has been the latter, so I intentionally carved out a DND (Do Not Disturb) weekend. We need these weekends; we need to be able to listen to ourselves and our conditions closely enough to create these weekends.

T sometimes reminds me to "take your time, K," and this always moves me. The idea of taking one's time connotes a gentleness, a kindness, and a mindfulness for being a little speck in a much, much bigger picture.

Take your time --what you think and what you know isn't all there is.
