So, let’s say that I have things not working for me.
My lover has just left me, and I hate my job.
My body is sick, and money isn’t flowing.
I am jealous of those who are easygoing.
Everyday is a good day to break down and sob.
Is there anything on earth that could set me free?
Back away from specifics that are already
Activated. You don’t want to hold yourself there
Any longer than needed. Find one little thing
That distracts you. There’s no reason for you to cling
To the negative feeling. You just have to care
More about feeling better. How hard can it be?
Focus on the most important thing, which is how
You are feeling right here and now. It’s the only
Thing that will rescue you from turmoil and distress.
Find something that delights you, and then acquiesce
To its beauty and wonder. Go hug a damned tree!
All that matters is that you feel better right now.
Get a load of that butterfly. Focus on it.
Study it longer than usual and become
Enamored by it’s beauty, then go pet the cat
Who knows nothing and couldn’t care less where you’re at.
You may not be feeling anywhere near awesome,
But at least you have redesigned hell just a bit.
