On the Way to Solutions

I am grateful for the strain and sweat of intense concentration of intense lengths

I am grateful for the misplaced blame on my shoulders

I am grateful for the stream of friends
heading out the door
on their way to Someplace Else

Pressured
I learn
at long last
how to Self-Soothe
how the best way to unwind
is not to get wound up in the first place

I learn
there had been a leak in my energy
spinning wheels in worry
procrastination
spinning wheels in past
regret

I learn I can increase my outward energy
by minimizing my inward energy
a contradiction that works

I am grateful for the pressure
