Hummingbird Heartbeat

Me, myself and I

I wake up to the sun rays sneaking up onto my bare skin

The sheets are intertwined with my body, making it difficult to expose myselfI finally break freeI rise and open the windows and as my eyes are closed I take my first breath of fresh air

The sheets are intertwined with my body, making it difficult to expose myself

I finally break free

I rise and open the windows and as my eyes are closed I take my first breath of fresh air

I can smell the cool breeze coming from the mountains, I can feel the vibrations of the many cars zooming through the narrow streets, I can feel the goosebumps emerging, I can sense that it’s going to be a sunny day but with a hint of scattered clouds

I open my eyes and the first thing I noticed in the middle of this craze filled environment, is a single humming bird.

All alone.No other bird around him. Simple and carefree.I stand by the window for a while just watching and grasping how, I too, was by myself, simple and carefree.Astonished. Relating to such a small creature.Seeing the flashing colors of its wings, made my heart race.I felt as though my heart was in sync with his, beating at 1260bpm.

All alone.

No other bird around him.

Simple and carefree.

I stand by the window for a while just watching and grasping how, I too, was by myself, simple and carefree.

Astonished. Relating to such a small creature.

Seeing the flashing colors of its wings, made my heart race.

I felt as though my heart was in sync with his, beating at 1260bpm.

I took a moment to: Stop, breathe, be…

Stop. Thoughts of all the negativity, bad and ugly in my life

Breathe in/ Breathe out. I got rid of all the negativity, bad and ugly thoughts in my head

Be. Making room for nothing but pure positivity and virtuous vibes

Acceptance.

I had to learn that accepting who I am and where I am in life is the only way to be truly free

How beautiful it is to love yourself unconditionally, with no fear

I learned that the only way to truly understand your heart is to be…

ALONE
