Relax

Relax. Something everyone tells you to do, yet no one actually seems to be doing. I, for one, am almost constantly stressed out. Being in your twenties and trying to figure your life out isn’t exactly an easy task, and definitely not one you can do overnight.
It’s hard for me to relax, because I always feel like if I have free time, I should be using it to do something useful. Sadly, most of us realize all to late in life that sometimes you have to stop what you’re doing and make yourself relax.
I am currently sitting on my back porch, looking at the river, soaking up the sun, listening to some Mumford and Sons, and relaxing. Taking a breath. Realizing how beautiful it is. Feeling very peaceful, and smiling softly at how great this moment is.
I am not studying the large amount of math I need to get down. My room is messy. I need to fold laundry. There’s a long list of things I could and should be doing right now.
But taking time out of my day to feel at peace with myself and the world around me is worth so much more than any of us realize, and I am very glad that I am out here doing so.
If I had realized this year’s ago, who knows where I’d be now? Oh well, at least I’ve realized it now 🙂

    I know the feeling. I am going through the same issues. Being 20 isn’t as easy as I thought.
