The Pendulum Swings

An emotion is like a pendulum
The harder you push it in the other direction
The faster it swings back at you without discretion
So no matter how wildly your emotions swing
Just let them be and stop pushing
Only then will you achieve equilibrium

Ugh… I seem to keep churning out self-motivational stuff like these lately. I promise I’ll try something different again soon! 🙂

The Last Week

Below is a (slightly reworked) copy of a Facebook status I wrote earlier today. I know I said that my previous post would be my last one in a while, but I liked it too much not to add it here 🙂

My thoughts intermingle
Until they’ve become
A hazy blur
Empathy and Apathy
Are locked in
A vicious struggle
To gain control
Of my restless soul
The one selflessly clamoring for
The need for speed
The other selfishly emphasizing
The need for sleep
In other words,
‘Tis the last week
At work
Before my holiday
