Well hello little badass calendar…
Oh to be a child again,
free from expectations
accepting everything as it is
with joy and laughter.
Before influences of
and what one should be.
I accept everyone as they are. No expectations.
Perhaps it’s easier for me that way.
Perhaps it is a result of my long journey to accept myself as I am.
Maybe it’s an avoidance tactic.
If I had a therapist, I would ask him/her. However, I don’t so I will just carry on.
I have learned to not worry about things I have no control over.
I used to worry all the time.
All the time.
Until I realized that worry robbed me of so many moments of enjoyment that I should have had with individuals who are no longer present in the body.
So now I ask myself when I find myself agonizingly overthinking: “Can I control or change this situation?”
If the answer is no, it gets symbolically put in a box that is outside my head.
“Living a simplified life of concentrating on the now, accepting others and myself as we are, and not worrying about things I cannot control, has brought about the peace that I have been looking for my entire lifetime.”
