A beautiful day
does not need to be perfect.
If it is sunny.
Life is also this way sometimes.
It can be going “very well”, or even “pretty well”
and still not be straight As across the board.
If there is just a few good points, or one really good aspect,
then the other aspects of a complete life that are weaker or missing, don’t seem so bad.
If you have a secure home life, or a good job,
or a happy relationship with your partner then it gives you a base to work from.
A launching pad for happiness.
If you have one.
But if you are falling, or floating, or drowning in problems
and don’t have a rock to hold on to,
then life feels like choppy waters, strong undertow,
and not being able to touch the bottom.
If a sunny afternoon is the only good thing you can see around you,
then that is what you have and no more.
And it doesn’t last long, so go get it.
Today I walked until my feet hurt, but my eyes were satisfied.
