The last few months I've been trying to simplify my life.
In the last 2 weeks I'm doing it.
I'm clearing out the cobwebs, trimming the fat, scraping clean the corrosion of time.
It has not been easy. I'm running low on energy - quite literally. I'm moving past the hump of acclimation into a new diet - the lack of caffeine has made my eyes threaten to jump from my skull.
I am striving to have truer relationships. Quality not quantity.
To take time to write, to ponder - when I'm inspired. Not because it is on my "to-do" list. Or when I've got something fabulous to share.
To breathe deeper. More quietly. More soulfully.
Look past the immediate. Past the tired. Past the hunger. Past the pain. Past the deadline. Past the crankiness. Past being broke. Past the icy driveway.
Have I found the secret? Do I hold the key that unlocks that door?
This song (which won't allow me to embed here...) has pushed me to grab life by the balls on several occasions.
Listen to it. Sam the bartender knows it.
You don't get your money back!
