Mute the world

Sometimes home life is enough.
And so I mute the world.

Mute my phone.
Mute the news.
Mute social media.

I love the quiet.

When I will turn the volume back up,
the world will still be there.

I am not so important that it can’t survive without me.

The not-to-do-list

A blank paper.
A good pen.

High speed writing.

I make a list.
A not-to-do-list.

First all the things the while wide world wants me to do,
the things I know I am not going to do.

Next all the things closer others want me to do,
the things I know I am not going to do.

And at last all the things I want myself to do,
the things I know I am not going to do.

Square boxes next to each item.

And now the most exciting part!

Ready!
Set!
Go!

One by one,
I read.
I don’t do it!
I check the box.

I finish my not-to-do-list.

A deep breath
A big smile
Peace in my soul.
Clarity in my head.
