Perspectives

by Susan de los Santos, CST Case Manager & Mental Health Counselor

Sitting at the base of a lush tree,

Its canopy gently falling down and over me.

The only movement from the breeze, allowing me to peek out to see the world beyond.

I am alone and isolated.

My thoughts weigh heavy in the air

 

Staring up and around at the beauty that surrounds me, I shift my perspective.

I am alone and connected.

Because in the silence and stillness I am aware of myself and all that I am a part of. 

My thoughts now light, lift my spirit.
