What is “Keeping Up?”

I recently wrote a poem called “If you can’t keep up maybe you’re not supposed to.”

Sometimes one can’t keep up with the fast pace and demands of life.

Other times, on the outside they’re doing well, but inside they’re struggling—having to shunt their emotional life aside in order to keep up.

The following article is a great example of how mindfulness allows a person to keep up with themselves, to show up for themselves, while also tending to their day-to-day obligations.

It’s written about one life transition, but truly applies to so many others as well, and quite frankly, is a mindset that can be so healing on a daily basis—no matter the circumstance.

Thank you to my teacher and mentor, Yael Shy
for being a guiding light—
