I have found lately that life has been more than a little stressful. It is easy to slip into the daily grind and feel like you have nothing left at the end of the day for yourself. Yesterday I was feeling particularly anxious, and so I sat down and wrote. There is something so comforting about creating a piece of art. It has a way of letting your mind unwind unlike anything else.
Being focused on trying to move, getting a new car, and the lack of time (or lack of making time) for writing, singing, dancing, or listening to music has left me a little frayed. So tonight I am listening to a great mix of music, and spending some time on me. I have a stack of work I “should” be doing. The realization that no one is going to pamper or help you relax when you are the type of person that is constantly on the go. Most everyone around you just expects it of you. Therefore, I am making myself a cup of coffee, write two poems, and then take a bath.
As for all of my other endeavors…they will be there tomorrow when I have the energy to devote to them. So, on that note I encourage all of you to sit back, grab your favorite beverage and relax. Put some music on. Don’t think about tomorrow, or next week. Just live in this moment, right now!
