The Mindfulness Mansion by Tricia Zirit (aka Nurse Zirit)

Mindfulness creates space,
like tons and tons all over the place.
Not space like, “Hey, ride with me there’s space in my car.”
And not space like, “Hey, I just saw a shooting star.”
But a type of subtle, still, inner space, and this is how – 
because mindfulness brings us into right now.
Once we fully arrive into the present moment at hand, 
there is enough space for everything – it’s like we expand.
Not expand like “Oh no, these pants are too tight.”
And not expand like, “Hey look at my bubble gum blown just right.”
But a type of subtle, still, inner expansion –
that feels, on the inside, like a mindfulness mansion.
Not a mansion that’s fancy or expensive or showy,
but a mansion that’s accepting and open and glowy.
There’s enough room to be happy, sad, joyful and mad – 
there’s room to be frustrated and room to be glad.
There are no walls or boundaries or fences around, 
only wide open space and our two feet on the ground.
There are no butlers or maids who are constantly cleaning,
but a focus on breathing and what brings our lives meaning. 
So be present, breathe deeply, and shine your own light,
because in the mindfulness mansion we are always alright.
