have you ever?

have you ever felt like your head is going to explode?
or that you have forgotten a million things you have to do
on top of the stuff you remember?
well. lately i have been feeling like that.
not wanting the next day to come, or the next month.
this sadly makes time go faster for me.
the past year has slipped between my fingers.
because of worry, or a filled schedule.
have you ever felt like everything in your life was good at the moment?
that you didn't need to worry right then,
it would all be ok?
well. today in art,
yes art.
i had that feeling.
i took a deep breath, and realized.
this moment was perfect. no worries, no imperfections, no self-doubt.
i am fine, i am alive, everything is good.
i thank my Heavenly Father for all of my blessings.
both big and small.
i need to remember that when times are tough.
keep strong. and count my blessing.
my friend,
i encourage you to do the same.
