Learning To Linger
Linger in sunshine, In moments that light you up.
Linger in beauty, In moments that take your breath away.
Linger in stillness, In quiet moments.
Linger in messiness, In moments that make you feel a little uncomfortable.

Linger in pain, In the purpose it has for you.
Linger in Joy, In the moments that fill your soul.
Linger in little magic and wonder.
In moments that make you feel the most alive!
