A break

Sometimes I just stare at the flowers.

You may be weary.
Maybe the world weighs heavy on you.
You might feel you don’t have a prayer in you.
Well, some days your soul doesn’t need to work so hard.
Souls get tired. Sick, even. 
Some days yours just needs a little TLC.
Sometimes what our soul needs is not more discipline
but something comforting and nourishing. 
Maybe even something fun.
Give your soul a break.

When your soul is weary or unwell
do something nice for your soul.
Even something silly.
Feed it with grace at the roots. 

If that day is not today, it will come. 
You have permission.
