Normally some days are more stressful than others. But lately, stress has been a factor every day. I know that’s not good. Stress affects the health, sleep and a bunch of other things. I wondered how to get pass it or rather how to deal with it so, I looked up.
I lifted my face to the sky. I don’t know why this particular morning, but I did. Now I see clouds all the time but this morning it seemed to be different. It was as if it knew the stress that was resting on my shoulders. The cloud was a bright white with streaks of powder blue entwined throughout. I stared at it for a long moment thinking how beautiful, calm and free it seemed to be. I tilted my head and closed my eyes and for a moment I saw myself reclining in the crook of it’s softness. I relaxed in it and sighed, releasing the tension that surrounded my temples. Just for a brief moment I felt the kiss of a cloud.
