Expectations of me, I sweep to the side
I have my dreams, vision; how I choose to live
Giving a damn about anything and everything
That passes my peripheral vision will
Inevitably spread me too thin.
Very selective about what needs my attention
Entertaining influence from the ignorant
Feeds nothing but my ignorance,
So what do I do, except sieve what I deem inappropriate;
Calm, as I take my time; settling in the design
Of my Maker’s embroidery.

Give a damn about everything and you will always feel like you’re fighting a losing battle; highly prone to fatigue.
Whenever I feel like I am under pressure I ask myself if whatever is worrying me is going to kill me. If it’s not, I stop worrying. It may be a little tricky to switch perception like a switch, definitely takes practice. The work I do requires a certain level of emotional intelligence, and I would like to believe it has helped me improve in that department.
Its Wednesday, enjoy your Thursday. It’s almost Friday.
