the art of giving up

my drive (albeit absent some days) is to be better, to be ready.. for something. i need to be amazing at everything i set out to do. not to be the best and feel awesome about it, but to be competent enough, just in case.. i guess it’s to protect myself.
which probably means i’m actually rather scared about death in some way. steeling myself to face the inevitable.
such a better way is to really live in the first place, and forget about it.. until it just doesn’t matter anymore.
so while sitting on my balcony, stretching and thinking about my place in the universe, i know i must learn to let go.
