The Daily Grind

Everyone has those days when they get overwhelmed

Overwhelmed by the stress of the daily grind

You had a fight with a lover

You have a soul crushing job

You’re tired of being trapped at a desk and breathing the same recycled air

You work in customer service and have to wear a shit eating grin to people you don’t like

Going out and emerging yourself in nature

If there is any around you

Walking on a forest path

Looking up at an eagle overhead

Gazing over a pond that reflects the sky

Reminds you that your life and your problems are just a small part of a complex system

That there is a world billions of years old all around you

And that the problems you stress yourself about

Will disappear like a drop of water in the stream of time.
