I need to remember Resilience.
I think it is the answer to my anxieties.
Learning from creation-
I've heard it described how animals
can put up a chase for their desired prey,
but once they realize it is out of their grasp
there is no complicated disappointment
just a simple letting go and changing of directions.
If I can recognize my own resilience then
anything can happen to me
(like I already know that it will)
without me needing to predict when or if or how.
Then chaos is a little more tolerable.
If I can remember that after every terrible thing
I have clawed and suffered and gasped and choked,
but also, Here I am.
It does not last forever.
And hasn't my yoga mat taught me
that really, you can breathe through anything.
