Today, I will move even though I don't feel like it. I acknowledge my pains and move with them, not in spite of them.
Today, I will rest even though I feel like moving. I acknowledge my illness and permit it space to move through instead of squeezing it into my schedule.
Today, I will smile. I acknowledge the beauty in myself that wants to flow out and the beauty in others that wants to be seen.
Today, I will breathe. Fully. I acknowledge my body, provide it with the energy it needs, and release all that it does not.
Today, I will be grateful. I acknowledge that troubles are only such because I expect life to be otherwise, and that all experience has value.
Today, I will practice. I know that I will yell when I want to breathe, ignore when I want to acknowledge, and even forget to practice. Until I remember. I acknowledge even practice is a practice.
Today, I will be.
For I do not have today to waste.
