I can sit now at ease. Understanding now, Coming to terms. It was not you, or me. This just wasn’t our destiny. I can sit at ease, not worrying about the heartache or headache that once was. I can sit at ease, not judging you for the role you played. But for the person you are. Not who I wanted you to be. I can sit at ease now feeling at peace with myself with you, with the world, things are right. I can sit at ease, now worrying about the next storm that might resurface, but instead grateful for the calm that follows. I can sit at ease. Peaceful, Relaxed, Done.
We apply this perspective to all aspects of our lives, assigning time to events, activities, goals, and most importantly…people. In our relationships, we set our priorities based on how much time we think a person or project deserves, thereby expressing our feelings concerning their status. Being available for someone else indicates the relationship has value. I’m still working on creating time where there is none, to make sure my loved ones know that they matter. Life lessons and all that jazz.
