Yep, you can have it whenever you want to have it.  Bring your thoughts in.  Abandon worry about things out of your control.  Stop thinking you have control.. :)  Look around and find things that are calm, or neutral, or still.  Breathe slowly.

you don't have to do everything

Pick your battles.  Don't bite off more than you can chew. Pace yourself.  Do one thing at a time.... lot's of ways of saying this.  Sometimes when you just wait, the need for action disappears, or someone else steps in to take care of the thing, maybe not the way you would.  That's OK.  There's lots of room in the world for each of us.

New Beginnings

Every day is a new beginning.  When you wake up, the day is ahead of you and you have many opportunities to make new decisions, act in new ways, stretch yourself.  Each person you meet, whether or not you already know them, can be different, too; having decided on their own to make today different from other days.  Everyone is changing all the time.  Enjoy your new self today.

Hot August Nights

The crickets are singing, the air is still.  The dogs are restless and so am I.  I feel ambitious and tired.  A bit at a loss for direction - adrift.  All possibilities are open, all opportunities available.  Cool and unsettling.  Wish me luck.

Empty Time

You may not have much of this.  I seem to have a lot.  The busy times come in spurts that may last a week or two. I can be lazy, yes, and not fill up my own time.  By that I mean keeping myself occupied doing 'something productive', like my mom used to suggest.  :)  I used to talk myself into doing things, or out of doing things that I'm supposed to do.  Now I try to pay more attention to whether or not my first inclination is to do the thing or not do it... then act on that. Of course, I can talk myself out of things, like going to the gym.  Still, I try not to do things because I am afraid.  Not a good idea to fill up your time with fear motivated things.  Better to leave that time empty.

Simple things

Making my Mom laugh, being reminded of a good friend when I hear a certain song, looking out into the yard and seeing the bunny.   Knowing there is peace here now because everywhere I go I am safe in the moment... and if I am not, the unsafe moments pass and are replaced by safe moments.
The right things happen at the right time.  Trust this.
