Unbreakable

Unbreakable

i went for a walk yesterday morning and as i arrived at the top of my street on the way home, a johnny cash song came on. he was singing about a girl, and how now that he’s met her, he’s alright now. that his past is his past and he’s going to be okay from here on out. in all honesty it didn’t matter what the song was about, at least not at the time, but hearing those words as they were repeated, as they became louder and brighter, reached past my brain and into my heart and brought me into a space that i’ve only visited a few times before. but this one was different. i was walking because i was told to. twenty minutes a day, with meditation, to calm my mind. to keep my thoughts from affecting my mood so much. to find a stillness that will hopefully do me good. hearing “i’m alright now” over and over again, at that moment, made me feel everything, and that became an energy in and of itself.
