A yoga instructor once told me “you can quiet the negativity in your mind by listening to how your body feels”.
So I jogged around town without headphones to see if he was for real.
My thoughts wrote the lyrics and my feet made the beat.
The tempo of my song dictated the pace that my sneakers jarred against the street.
In forty minutes time, I wrote a record that brought my whole body to tears.
Each verse singing of the ugliness I had kept secret between my ears.
The music faded out when I neared my apartment door.
I was soaked in sweat and red in the face…and I’d never felt more beautiful before.
