Take It Easy

Take It Easy
Take It Easy – Midjourney

We all should learn to take it easy…

As I sit here, drunk and alone
With this monkey by my side
I can’t help but think about my own
Exhaustion, my endless fight to abide

By the expectations I have set
For myself, my ambitions and goals
But sometimes, I can’t help but fret
Feeling burdened by the weight of my soul

The world and its perceptions, they can be harsh
Making me feel inferior, clueless, and adrift
But I must remember, it’s not only the external
That can bring me down, but my own internal rift

I am the only one who can work towards
A more fulfilling life, that much is true
But there’s no harm in taking a break, a short pause
To refresh and return with renewed vigor, it’s due

So I’ll sit here, with this monkey by my side
And take a moment to breathe, to let go
Of the chains that bind me, the constant strive
To be the best, to constantly grow

Take It Easy

For in this moment, I am enough
Just as I am, in my imperfection
And when I return to the race, it will be with love
For myself, and my never-ending quest for self-improvement

Inspired by Little bit about life

Pilot Wife

Reading this poem from the perspective of a drunk pilot’s wife, it’s clear that the pressures of life and work can be overwhelming, even for those who appear to have it all together. The struggle to balance personal ambition and self-care is a familiar one, and it’s heartening to see the poet acknowledge the need for rest and self-love. As the wife of a pilot, I understand the importance of taking it easy to recharge and reflect, not just for oneself but for the safety of others. I hope my husband takes these words to heart and remembers to prioritize his well-being, both in the cockpit and out.

In-Flight Chaos: A Pilot Battles His Booze and Imaginary Monkey

As I sit in the cockpit of my airplane, I can feel the alcohol coursing through my veins. I can feel the oncoming in-flight chaos. It’s been a long day of flying and I just want to close my eyes and get some rest. But there’s one problem: my damn monkey.

You see, I have this imaginary monkey who lives in my head and he’s always causing trouble. And tonight, he’s being particularly annoying. Every time I start to drift off into a deep snore, he wakes me up with his incessant chatter because the snoring noise is so loud and is keeping the monkey awake.

“Come on, captain, you can’t fall asleep now!” he chirps in my ear. “We have a plane full of passengers depending on us!”

But I just can’t help the in-flight chaos. The alcohol has made me so drowsy and I just want to get some rest. So I turn to my monkey and give him a piece of my mind.

“Shut up, you stupid monkey!” I slur. “I’m the pilot here and I’ll do what I want. Now let me sleep!”

In-Flight Chaos

But my monkey just won’t leave me alone. He’s hopping up and down on my shoulder, pulling on my hair and generally being a nuisance. I can feel my frustration boiling over and I’m about ready to snap.

Finally, I can’t take it anymore. I turn to my monkey and give him a good shake. “Listen here, you little pest. I’m the captain of this plane and I’m not going to let you ruin my rest. Now leave me alone and let me sleep!”

With that, I close my eyes and drift off into a deep snore, my monkey forgotten for the moment. But I know he’ll be back, causing more in-flight chaos as soon as I start to doze off. Such is the life of a drunk pilot with an imaginary monkey.

30 Days No Booze – The Surprising Benefits I Never Expected!

30 Days No Booze
30 Days No Booze – Midjourney

It had been a long time since I had gone more than a day or two without a drink. Definitely never 30 Days No Booze. Booze had always been a big part of my life, and I couldn’t imagine life without it. But as I approached my 40th birthday, I started to feel like something was missing. I wasn’t as happy as I used to be, and I couldn’t shake the feeling that I was stuck in a rut.

That’s when I decided to make a change. I set a goal for myself: 30 days no booze. It was going to be a real challenge, but I was determined to see it through.

The first few days were tough. I felt irritable and bored, and I found myself constantly craving a drink. But I had an imaginary monkey named Bob by my side, cheering me on and giving me positive affirmations. “You can do this!” he would say. “Just think of all the amazing benefits you’ll experience!”

Incredible Changes

And boy, was Bob right. As the days went on, I started to notice some incredible changes. I was sleeping better than I had in years, and I had more energy during the day. My skin was clearer, and I even lost a few pounds. I also found that I was able to concentrate more easily, and I was less prone to making mistakes.

But the best part was the way I felt emotionally. I was more joyful and content, and I felt like I had finally broken out of the rut I had been stuck in. It was like I had a new lease on life, and I was excited to see what the future held.

Of course, it wasn’t all easy. There were definitely times when I wanted to give up and have a drink. But Bob was there to remind me of all the progress I had made, and he helped me stay strong.

Then, around day 20, everything came crashing down. I had a nervous breakdown and ended up in a hospital. It was a scary and humbling experience, but it was also a wake-up call. I realized that I needed to make some serious changes in my life if I wanted to be happy and healthy.

30 Days No Booze

After I was released from the hospital, I was more determined than ever to complete my dopamine fast. And when I finally made it to the end of the 30 days no booze, the feeling of accomplishment was euphoric. I had more energy, more focus, and more joy than I had in years. I knew that I couldn’t stay sober forever, but I also knew that I had gained some valuable insights that I could take with me for the rest of my life.

So if you see me out on the town, don’t be surprised if I’m a little more subdued than usual. I’ve learned the value of moderation, and I’m not about to give up the newfound sense of balance I’ve found. Thanks, Bob!
