Spring appears to be blooming in Brooklyn, or so I've seen from my window. I've been stuck inside, convalescing with an elevated leg and limited mobility. I had a bit of an accident, and it's taking a little while to heal up. I'm pretty hard on myself most of the time, and when I get myself into a pickle like the one I'm in, I ramp it up a lot. I get mad at myself for letting it happen in the first place. I get frustrated with myself for not approaching the situation with a different (better?) attitude. I curse myself for missing out on plans and opportunities. I spiral a bit, and take out my frustration on myself. I don't want to be a punching bag for my own frustrations. This is a song about trying to recognize it, and attempting to offer myself a kinder approach.


Once in a while
I get mad at myself

It's so hard to back down
The things that I say to me

I wish I was patient
And kinder to myself more of the time

I'm trying hard to offer
Grace to myself more of the time
But it gets hard
