Commit to the moment of
Twirling your mind along with
In a relay race in which everyone wins.
You spin while you
Soaking in the rays of acceptance
That flash around your
Surrender to the elusiveness of
Seconds that move with you,
Choices and chances galore.
And continue to twirl
As though infinity is in the now.

As I wrote this poem, I thought about the importance of living life fully right now, in this moment. I also thought back to when I was a girl, twirling around just for fun, with a doll in one hand and a firm hold of the feeling of fun in the other hand. Let’s remember to enjoy the fun of life when we are adults too!
