Hanging up Human-ness

Life is like a roller coaster they say, with it's highs and lows, but what about the times when we slow down in the middle sections and it's starting to sway? There are decisions we can't seem to make and emotions get shoved aside because there is a to-do list to get done. People we love need our strength. A snapshot of how different we dreamed our life to be appears and tags 'it' and wants to be chased after, but there is no extra energy to go running in pointless circles. Everything feels just a little bit heavier even though nothing being carrying seemed to have changed. A break from this journey would be nice. Not a unloading, or shutting down, or running away, just a moment to walk away and be different. 

If only we could unzip and step out. Hang up our humanness on the coat rack and walk out the door. 

A floating in oblivion. 

Free from the limitations of the body, the aches and expectations. Free from decisions, failures, desires and disappointments. Free from the weariness of life's journey.

A complete rest. 

Just for a while.

Then coming back inside, lifting our humanness off the hook and quietly slipping back into it. Back for the rest of the ride.
