Random Thoughts / Poetry
We make so much of every situation
It all seems so important
A heightened level of anxiety becomes our natural state
We are told to escalate for every issue
Everything becomes critical
Our life is one of hyperactivity
Driven to achieve by ourselves and others we are exhausted
Is it any wonder we are so unhappy?
We are asked to do more and more with the same amount of limited time
Our life is now dominated by schedules and to-do lists
The pace we set for our life cannot be sustained
We seek the answer in meditation, yoga, Buddhism, Islam, Christianity, Judaism, and any other number of ways to calm our mind and give our life meaning
The days become a blur as they pass us by
You tell yourself someday I will jump off this hamster wheel, once I earn a little more money
That day never happens and you die never having really lived
Is that really what you want from your life?
Stop deferring your fucking life
Today I will jump off the hamster wheel even if for an hour or two
Once I taste freedom I will cease to jump back on the wheel
Remember the world will always try to pull you back into the vortex
Only you can save yourself
