What if there’s nothing else you need to do
And nothing else you need to change.
No amount of therapy
or income generation
And no amount of reading the right books
or writing the right books
or having the right friends
or losing that extra weight
or lifting those sagging parts
or lifting your sagging spirit.
And no amount of cleanliness in your home
or fullness of your social calendar
or greater or lesser focus on other people
or kindness to your dear ones
or vegetables consumed
or healing of the conflict with your kids or partner or friends
- what if there isn’t any alteration or endeavor whatsoever
that could make you any more lovable
than you actually already are?
