Five Minute Friday - easy

Every Friday we unite for five minutes to write on one word. Only five minutes, that's all we get, that's all we have. And then, right where we are, no edits or second-thoughts, we publish those words. This week, we write on easy.

I cannot think of one single time in my life, in which something was easy.
I cannot imagine taking the easy way out.
I don't know what it feels like to not make everything too hard,
to not earn something in the hardest way possible.
Not to work and fight and battle to get what I wanted to achieve.
And, along the way,
I have met so many amazing people who work so smart,
not hard.
Who know their stuff, know their value, know their worth, know their potential.
And so, there is no need for any of it to be hard, life can be a little easy.

My success, my life, my drive, all comes with hard.
Hard work
hard shell
hard headed
hard to please
hard to get to
hard to understand

And then, one day, I realized I am only making it hard for me.
I am making life harder than it has to be.
I am in control of the ease, I have to find my rhythm, my groove, my calm, my ease.
Yes, you have to work hard for what you want
yes, you have to fight to accomplish your vision
yes, life can be full of difficult and fog.
But, you can find pockets of ease, in which life unfolds, and you allow it to happen.
You allow it to see where it takes you.

Because when you let go of that control
when you put down your fighting gloves
when you allow life to comfort you,
that's where parts of amazing can happen.
Where you can find your second chance.
Where you can find happy
and childhood
and laughter
and joy...
simple, comforting, wonderful, worth living for,
easy joy.

    Hi, neighbor! Your words are so true - we're the ones who usually make things hard on ourselves. Easing our grip can make life a bit easier, I've found too. Happy to visit with you today.
