simple days

Some days, nothing is simple anymore. It's always pieces being broken into smaller pieces, chaotic mess, more and more of it unraveling everyday. It's picking up things that keep falling down, it's waking up when I don't want to, it's too many words spoken at once, it's constantly multitasking, it's unnecessary distractions, it's time limits and deadlines, it's an intricate string of miss happenings and undone work and mistakes twisting around me. It's the feeling that I can't breathe. Or it's the feeling that I'm stuck in a tiny room, walls on every side of me, too close, cramping me, and squeezing all feeling out of my body until I'm numb all over.
Yes, some days, everything piles up until it's too much for me.

And other days, other days...I wake up by my own choice, and I open my eyes to a warm sunrise filtering through the windows onto my bed. And I get to drink my tea, and read my book, and sit outside on the grass with the sun on my back, and write and let the feeling I get when I write sink in and relieve and refresh and comfort. I get to draw, to clear my head, to dance and twirl to a Taylor Swift song in my room. I get to stand and watch the sunset fade at the end of the day.
Some days it is simple again.


  1. Ooh, how beautiful! I love love love this xx

  2. Beautiful as always <3

    Ny xx

  3. Oh dearest Tane... Oh, I can so relate to this my sweet friend! Hugs to you!

  4. I like this for so many reasons. Maybe it's the feeling of calmness and peace that I feel between the words of the last paragraph. This is really magical. I love it when writing can transport you to that time, so long ago when things were simple and I wasn't so busy growing up. Then again, they always say, you only miss something when it's gone. Lovely post xx.

  5. This. This is amazing. I feel this. This is me. Eeeee. So, so, so beautiful!

  6. Sometimes deadlines are too much for me, and I get so overwhelmed. I think life for me would be so much more simple if I didn't have the homework and the deadlines looming over me.
    I love how you described the difference between the two different types of days...and listening to Taylor Swift <3 <3

  7. Simple days are the best days most of the time, I'd have to say.
    I'm sure I've said this 5.3 million times, but I'm going to say it again: YOU ARE SO TALENTED!

  8. this = perfect description of life.

  9. This is too wonderful, Tane! So beautifully written. I can't get enough of your writing. <3

  10. Yes, Ive been feeling this a lot lately. lost entirely work, very little play. I need a break from this busy life!

    xoxo Morning

  11. I can relate to your feelings so much... Some days I feel like a hamster in a wheel, running and running and running and getting nowhere.

    But then there are other days. Days where I can breathe deeply.

    Lovely, Tane. ;)

  12. Aahh, how I love simple days. ♥♥

  17. Twirling around to Taylor Swift is the simplest thing in the world. From the way you describe it, I want nothing more than to have an explicitly simple day.
