Life Around The Corner

Choosing Life and Operating Happiness

Baby Steps

A morning of light
After a “toss and turn” night.
I don’t want to go outside
But I must.
I want to have strength
And I feel weak.
I can’t figure out my next move.
I feel it’s not mine to make alone,
I don’t know what to do.
I fear for my mental health
In case I make the wrong choice.

I am so true to my core,
That anything not serving it
Makes me sick.
Another perspective will call me
Spoiled and stubborn.
I decline this perspective
After years of embracing it.

I need to make my choice,
It’s time and I’m afraid.
No one is holding my hand
As I enter the great hall of choices.
My eyes are covered
And I am in the middle of an intersection,
My path to be determined by
Sound and intuition.
Real life.

I feel I have the answer,
I see it in my mind.
Two people,
Not one.
Movement and stability,
Serenity and excitement.
Endless choices,
Times two.
I wonder if I’m right.
I feel I am.
I don’t know how to propose this
As a plan.

I don’t know the right strategy for me,
There are many distractions.
My mind is flooded with information.
Words are heavy.
Love is light.
Freedom is light.
Things seem unresolvable.
I want to book a flight.
A vacation in a beautiful site.

    This was in my inbox this morning from “Notes from the Universe” by

    “For every fork in the road, Tamara, there are often two paths from which to choose: the one you “should” take and the one you want to take.

    Take the second. Always take the second.

    I did,
    The Universe“
