Be Humbled, a little different than what Kendrick Lamar raps, is just my reminding myself how easy it is to get a little nutty. That is, especially when it feels like the world as you know it has become a vice-grip that’s closing tighter and tighter around you with each passing day.
The point is, be humbled by your stress, let it out, and persevere. It’s in our nature to do so.
Below is part of my freak out I was laughing about with my wife followed by all I have to be thankful for:
We’re surrounded by everything we own.
There’s shit everywhere (since we’re moving June 14th)!
I have to cut, clean, and pound out the chicken.
And do the dishes, so I can shave in the kitchen sink
Without a mirror
Because our bathtub is clogged and backs up when you use the bathroom sink,
Which had leaked for a month and he just fixed and
I’m so stressed [that] I don’t even know where to begin. I don’t even know where to begin.
Just going to have ANOTHER cigarette – always an excuse not to quit.
Now, for everything I’m thankful for:
Those who have always supported me along the way
Our country, even in social strife
Even some of their parents
The food I make every day
Most importantly, I’m thankful for waking up today,
For without that, none of the above would matter.
