Have It All

BY Reena Deshpande
Something Lost Makes Way for Some Gains

None of us can ever have it all.
Somewhere we rise, every time we fall.
Life is always just and fair for one and all.
But none of us can ever have it all.

Something lost makes way for some gains,
The one up there deserves no complaints.
Lush green leaves bloom and ultimately fall.
Barren empty trees bring in the snowball.
For every little bad, there’s another good call.
None of us can ever have it all.

Some choices we get while some we select.
For some we are glad, others make us repent.
Yet no moment can ever be a stiffened wall.
Times change and grow, nothing stays small.
None of us can ever have it all.

We open one door closing in a hundred more.
The opened door brings us our gifts in store.
Closed doors contain a lot meant to ignore.
The pandoras box is not what we’re made for.
So stay happy whether you fly or crawl…
Because none of us can ever have it all.

Take 5 Deep Breaths

1. Feel your body.

2. Relax your shoulders.

3. Choose a word that makes you feel peaceful, such as om, peace, or love.

4. Inhale slowly while mentally saying the word you chose. Pause before starting the exhalation.

5. Exhale slowly while mentally saying 1 with the first breath. Exhale saying 2 with the second breath, up to 5 or more.

Feel Your Body

Relax your body, and just be aware of how your body feels. Without changing anything, notice what you are feeling, and where you are feeling things in your body.  If your body wants to adjust a little, let it. Be curious how it feels as your body relaxes. (Resist any temptation to analyze or think.)
