We adapt our daily lives to habit,
The line of least resistance for minimum stress:
Sometimes, with a goal and a plan
But often not.
Perhaps one we don't believe in anymore
Or we don't actually remember.
Big goals get fractured into little goals
Day in and day out – gazillions!
Always others to be considered besides ME!
So, we often think but rarely say:
'I do this because I have to'
'I do this because I want to'
'I want to do this because I have to.'
The hardest of all -
Giving Joy a chance
For positive mental health
And the glimmer of Grace.
Do you think any other animal
I don't think it is impossible.
Read their eyes!
