I watch her sluggishly drag herself along the day through the demands, complaints, aggravation, needle in the hay stack work pile, amongst other things that require her attention. But beyond that outer thick scale of hardness she hides the reality of what is and what could be, metaphorically speaking. She never breaks, she never shows pain, she never shows restlessness.

Day after day, after day she pushes herself…moving to her own rhythm like an automatic pilot. Never does she once think of herself, but she thinks of the satisfaction her motivation brings to others.

But…..but…..when does she break? When does she get the chance to scream? When does she get the chance to “not care?” When does she get the chance to get crazy and let her guard down? When does she? When does she?

At night when the world is silent, the street lights come on, the children of the city are fast asleep, the moisture of the night is falling in, the songs of the night crawlers are distinctly heard through the wind,  and she is finishing up her elite list of things to do she steals a moment of silence……

She takes this time to think, she takes this time to analyze how things can be easier, she takes this time to inhale and exhale, she takes this time to realize that tomorrow she get to do it all over again. Maybe she takes this time to pray to God and be thankful, and pray that life progress for the better……..or……

……………Or maybe she takes this time of silence to cry. Her silent cries of joy, pain, regret, or even happiness, the cries that heals and cleanse her soul and make her stronger for the next day. Still every morning I look at her in the mirror and I wait for her to scream, for her to break, but she never does….and I don’t think she ever will.

TO KNOW YOURSELF IS TO LET YOUR SOUL FEEL….FOR HEALING IS HOW WE UNDERSTAND AND PROGRESS. BESIDES, EVERYONE FACES STRESSFUL SITUATIONS, BUT HOW YOU HANDLE THEM MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCES. THIS MEANS TAKING CONTROL OF YOUR LIFE AND WHATEVER COMES WITH IT BEFORE YOU GET OVERWHELMED….
