Soul stretch

I caught myself off guard this afternoon. 

It was lovely.

I stretched in my office chair and my mind emptied – I was suddenly only aware of my flesh and bones and the soul within me wanting to be fed.

In that single stretch – I was not thinking of worldly ‘things’ I had to do – thoughts I had to have, or needs yet to be met. 

My body sung in my stretched position and I felt absolutely, deliciously, human.

Every inch of me exhaled in a glorious release of tension.


I was Amanda.

I found her.

I was wide awake spiritually and in that brief moment, so very aware. 

Aware of my body – my heartbeat and breath, and urgently aware that time slips by too quickly. 

As I returned from the stretch, I brought with me the short and important list of things my soul wants to experience.




And nothing, nothing at all was more important.  And time is of the essence. 

I was given this today.

All in one single stretch. 

A Happy Day

Today is a happy day.

A sing-in-the-kitchen, air band in the car, 2 treats for the dog kinda day.

Last night brought an unexpected wave of relief. 

I let go. 

Of some drama, of some resentments and of some toxic expectations.

I spoke to friends from my past that really made me laugh.  I felt light and just … happy.

You’d think after yet another night of having my sleep interrupted by Butters – my happy wave would have waned. 



It did not.

I feel more sure of myself.  Open to whatever or whoever the universe has in store for me.  Ready to move on, open up and stop taking myself and others so seriously.

Actually giggled at work over an adorable unexpected sneeze … Giggled!  Bonkers.

I have no particular reason for this full to the brim, suddenly burdenless and boundless joy.  But I dig it. 

And I think I’ll keep it thank you very much. 

But I’ll share too.
