Comfortable

Have you ever noticed

the moment you try to get comfortable,

it becomes immediately harder to do so?


Your legs aren’t in the right spot,

your foot itches,

and holy crap it’s hot.


The moment we try to be something

we suddenly become aware

of all the ways we’re not.


When feelings like comfort—

arrive on their own,

they feel better than any attempt

to get there by force.


This is the same as self-improvement.


When you love and accept

who you are, now—

it is easier to become

who you want to be.


Improvements that stem from love

last far longer than those

made out of haste and hate.

                                                   

Acceptance and love must come

before you begin to change.
