24 Hours

A day can feel like a lot of time or a little bit of time, depending on how we choose to spend it.

Hang with your family and friends on vacation? It goes too fast. Waiting for something to come in two days? 24 hours is a long time.

It can be difficult to know how to cram everything you want to do in the time that you’re awake to the time that you go to sleep.

But at the end of the day (or the beginning), it is up to us how we spend it. So if we’re using every minute to further ourselves, or just to relax and treat ourselves to some self-care, it’s worth it.

Prioritize as much as you can and try to schedule some time with yourself as well is my advice.

It’s a whole day. Or, it’s just a day.



I Don’t Know Why

Some days, things are hard. And some days? Things are so much harder.

I don’t know why that is. I don’t know why it seems to feel like the universe has it out for us some days, but on others, it wants to sabotage us and then trip us and then kick us when we’re down.

I don’t know why some days you can drop a cup of coffee on yourself and accidentally give yourself third degree burns. And I don’t know why life has to give you the third degree.

I don’t know why the words flow so quickly on some days. And I don’t know why it’s hard to go with the flow on others.

I don’t know why I get so stressed out sometimes. And I don’t know why my brain would allow me to do that to itself.

I don’t know why I can’t focus somedays. And I don’t know why there is nothing to focus on, on others.

I don’t know why I make everything so hard. And I don’t know why it’s so easy when I let it be.

I don’t know why I can’t learn to be still. And I don’t know why I can’t learn to keep going.

I don’t know why happiness is the hardest thing to attain. And I don’t know why it’s the first to leave.

I don’t even know why you’re reading this. And I certainly don’t know whether this is helping you.

But do you know what I do know? We all make it through. We all get along on our way. I may not know why, but I know how:

by breathing and carrying on.
