Mali Stands Still

Friday, February 05, 2010

For Mali the hardest thing in the whole world seems to be just standing still.

She likes to scamper around, fidget and giggle, not to stay still. But today Mali has promised her mum that she will take time to stand still for a few minutes.

Mali has thought about how she can stop and stand still and decided that the best way is to go somewhere quite. So Mali went to the glade in the middle of the forest where it is quiet and even the air is still. Then she decided to stand still like a tree.

So Mali took a few breaths to still herself and get calm and then she stood quietly with her feet together and shifted all her weight onto one leg and spread her toes to help her balance. Then she lifted her other leg and placed her foot against the inside of her other leg. She kept breathing very gently so that she wouldn't lose her balance and then she lifted her arms above her head and held her hands together.

mali managed to stand like that for a few minutes and then she did it again on the other side using opposite legs. mali decided that she did feel calmer for having stopped and standing still for a while and decided that she would try to stop and stand everyday just like a tree.

Mali knew her mum would be proud of her.
