Come out of your head for 2 minutes.

”Spend eighty percent of your time focusing on the opportunities of tomorrow rather than the problems of yesterday.”
– Brian Tracy

Are you ready to drink this blue sky today?
To pour it all in your no paranoia cup?
Life is meant to be savored inch by inch
not hesitating in each thought or doubt
things are simpler than they seem
Every time.

You complicate them.
Every time.

You’re so in your head
you can’t even enjoy where you are.

Right now.
Stop overanalysing, overthinking
Making full length complicated movies
out of two or three meaningless frames.

You are complicating.

Accept the scratch
the uncertainty
The “it is what it is”s about life
The events happening as they are
Because that’s all there is.
Enjoy the balloon while you have it.

It will shrink or burst.
But you don’t know when.
Enjoy its color and float.
Don’t complicate.
Release that knot in your throat.
