It is not complicated unless I make it so. It is not difficult unless I allow it to be. A second is no more than a second, a minute no more than a minute, a day no more than a day. They pass. All things and all time will pass. Don’t force or fear, don’t control or lose control. Don’t fight and don’t stop fighting. Embrace and endure. If you embrace, you will endure.
― James Frey, A Million Little Pieces
Below is the original photo used to create this image. Found this beautiful blooming tree on a walk through my neighborhood. No special lighting or retouching, just a snap from my smart phone.
