Imagine you’re a leaf, just about to fall of a tree. You’re a vibrant red, a bright yellow, or an orange hue. You let go of everything you’ve ever known and you fall, you’re carried by the wind, shifting through wind currents, slowly making your way down. The tree you held on to sits on top of a valley and there’s a river you’re drifting towards. You reach the draft of the river and you almost land on a rock in the riverbed, but the wind picks up and you’re picked up and guided by the river’s current. You let yourself go. The river current slowly leading you away from rocks and into the rapid river stairs of waterfalls. The river slows down. You become part of the river. Flowing through, letting nature taken its course. Thinking about this apparently helps you fall asleep. It helps relax the mind and gives you the ability to let you let go of all the little stressful bits of life, it let’s you compartmentalize, let’s you become just a leaf instead of the complex being you are. I hope you relaxed your mind. Sending love to wherever you may be, x.
