If you can go outside, DO IT.
If you can move your body: DO IT.
If you can go outside AND move your body: YAY DO IT!
Went out here, unfurled a yoga mat, stretched and breathed for twenty-one minutes. Hi crows! hummingbird! butterfly! AIR!
Yes, the world and everyone in it is crazy. It feels like we should be doing something about it. ALL THE TIME! But that’s crazy too, thinking that if we contract every muscle in fear & let everyone know how outraged we are at EVERYTHING because IT’S ALL IMPORTANT we’re somehow doing our best to make it better. That’s not solving SHIT. Not much shit, anyway.
We need to go outside. We need to move our bodies.
We need to go outside and move our bodies. Air quality permitting, whenever everything’s NOT on fire.
We need to stop thinking we can think ourselves out of this mess if we just keep … thinking and talking and scrolling. Our best thinking got us here. And if we’re talking we better have a good fucking PLAN backed up by love for where those words are going to take us.
Every day we need to surrender. To our body/ies. Inside this bigger body … and the one huge body that we are ALL a part of.
Take care of yourselves, cells. We are all in this together, whether we think we want to be or not. And sometimes the best way to cope with that and be our best at it is to go outside, move and breathe recognizing that we are all also alone.
