Dear God,
May I live less by the clock
and more by what I do with my time
May I live less by the things I want
and more by seeing what I have
Less by how I think I want things to be
and more by just being here now
Less by striving for perfection
and more by reveling in the beauty
and interestingness of imperfection
may you give me the power
to more than just accept things
but to embrace them
to live them
to stop always wanting more
May you help me jump into this pool
of an imperfect, real and messy life,
and stop thinking about it so much
and just enjoy it wherever I can.
