From Worry to Acceptance

Worry haunts the future
Regret haunts the past

Between those two ghosts of imagination
We try and live fully in the present
But so often fail

When we see both worry and regret
As the ghosts they are
And learn to pay them no mind
Without resenting them

We relax into the acceptance of all of it
Without pushing and pulling
Without cherry picking what we like
And pushing away what we don’t like

Just stop fighting with your experience
It doesn’t lead to happiness.
