Maybe it’s okay…

…to just feel a little overwhelmed sometimes.

To sit in the feeling of never going to get everything done.
Or never going to get that important thing done.
Or never going to catch your breath again.
Just sitting in the feeling of what we can’t control
can be a beautiful thing.
It’s so much better than struggling against time
and trying to fix everything
Right now I can’t even handle
a things to do list.
Right now I am just enjoying the feeling
of being alive
including everything
including the fact that I may never
get everything done
In fact, I won’t get everything done
And that’s okay.
Life is good.
It’s imperfect, it’s full, it’s busy, it’s painful,
it’s pleasurable, it’s amazingly wonderful.
Life is enough.
Exactly as it is right now.
Overwhelming and lacking, and all.
