Tired of Trying

Do you ever get tired? Of striving? Of improving? Do you wish that you could just stop where you are and be content? That you could accept your flaws the same way you accept your strengths? Do you ever wish that you could stop needing? Needing to change? Needing things you cannot have? Needing to get rid of things? Do you wish that you could just be at peace?

All the time, girl, all the time.

I sure do. But, I've tried living the other way and I find it harder. I often wish I could live in an easy, black and white world with no deep thoughts or complications, but when I've tried, I couldn't stand it. It's just not me.

I guess we just need to try to find peace and contentment within the inner yearning for more. I wish us all luck. :)

For sure, part of me wishes for that all the time but the louder part of me never wants to stop screaming. That means keep moving, keep wishing, keep growing and keep changing! But I'll be sure to stop dead in my tracks to watch T.V...

my big statement to my Licence paid professional (ehem) is: "I am so tired of manual- can't I just shift to automatic for just a freaking day?"

I hear ya!
