Stop overthinking it!

Sometimes … nothing you do feels right. From the moment you wake up, every action seems forced and wrong. Every comment or inquiry puts you on defense. Every criticism makes you vow to never help again. Sometimes anything … and everything will set you off.

And in the quiet of your mind when the day is calm, you can’t find the cause. It just is. And you hate how it is. And you hate what it’s done. So tomorrow you vow to push past this darkness and force a light into your heart.

And you wake … and you do … and the day is better. And the next … and the next. And you reflect on it at the end of the week and you wonder … how many times did you need to force it … and how many times was it just a good day because it was.

Sometimes … everything you do … just is. Stop overthinking it.
