Recipe for acceptance
1 part fixation on discomfort
1 part “I love that!”
Take fixations on discomfort. Add “I love that.” Try a new recipe already.
Tell myself I need to rise above these self consuming lies
that life can’t be a roll of perpetual compromises
my uncle said look, you’re headed one of two ways: higher or lower.
I go around on these same tracks over and over.
until I sit and let it bubble over
Dream new recipes and start over
The mind is like a border collie. If you let it sit around in the house, it’ll wreck the house. But if you give it a mission it can do great things for you.
