The Grand Distraction

And every day, the world will drag you by the hand, yelling "This is important! And this is important! And this is important! You need to worry about this! And this! And this!"

And each day, it's up to you, to yank your hand back, put it on your heart and say "No. This is what's important."

It relentlessly pulls me in different directions. Thank you for the reminder that I can stand still for a moment. With this moment, I will sleep.

This is so beautiful. With all the piles of work to be done, what's important is you do what you love. Thank you for this reminder :)

As I put my hand on my chest, close to my heart all I think of is "I know you're important, I just don't understand you". My hand falls to my side, I take a deep breath and keep walking.

Just do whatever it is that makes you happy. Nothing else matters.

I put my hand over my heart, and I feel comfort -I feel reassurance- that others have put their hands over their own hearts (and others) as well; knowing that others know what is important, that they want others to know what is important.
