Lying on the basement floor, my one shoe tapping to the beat of the song.
I’m tired. Emotionally. Physically.
I went for a jog. I had to. There was too much on my mind, too much on my heart to sit still.
I ran and ran and ran. I beat the distance I had set for myself. I left the pity party behind.
I’m closing my eyes and slowing my breathing while the words ‘awake my soul’ are repeated over and over.
The whole family is asleep so I sing it loud, hoping that maybe my soul will actually hear.
