Wednesday

to myself

sometimes
when it's really hard and
you are so
incredibly
weary,
when you are overwhelmed with 
everything,
you just need to 
stop,
simplify,
look at what is real.
Because all that other stuff,
all that stuff that consumes you,
it's pulling you away from the beauty
right in front of your face.
 And if you don't stop,
if you don't simplify,
if you let it devour your time, heart, and 
attention,


you will miss all that is truly
lovely and good,
all of the simple beauties that make this life
truly
worth living.
wake up mama, 
and see.
