Just This.



We are busy people.

We make the bees look like slackers.

But sometimes, sometimes I remember and catch myself when I’m going in a thousand different directions at once,

(and multitasking, even though it makes me stupid)

and remind myself of two words that calm me.

Two words, that like have a pulse like rhythm and bring me back to the present moment.

Two words as a mantra:

“Just this.”

“Just this.”

“Just this.”

And I will start the water, let it run and let the steam hit my face.

I will slowly undress and take the day off with my clothes.

I will slip into the too-hot bathwater.

I will breathe in the soap and steam and my own scent.

I will let my muscles relax into the heat and finally, slowly exhale.

I will stop.

I will just do this.
