while the other brings us joy. I choose joy.

keep what is worth keeping, and then,
with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.

Likewise, your mind often appears to have its own will.
That incessant chattering of regret, disappointment, guilt,
shame, foreboding, worry, and fear
is your Rattlesnake Mind striking off on its own.
