little voice

what has the little voice inside your head been saying lately?
 
mine says the same things on repeat each day: quit drinking diet soda. get more sleep. let go of what is over. be new. let it be easy. get rid of more stuff.
 
i haven’t quit drinking diet soda and i’m not trying to quit. the past few days i’ve gone back to bed, but for reading, not sleeping. i let go and let go and let go and some of it remains stuck in the ventricles of my heart. i think new thoughts to match my desire to be new. i let it be easy by skipping the hard parts, which isn’t the same as avoiding it, because i circumvent it, go around it, slip underneath it, occasionally transcend it. i deliver another box of stuff to goodwill every weekend. i recycle a few more old letters. i burn a few others.
 
what has the little voice inside your head been saying lately?
 
every once in a while, mine says something i haven’t heard before: move to portland, visit your mother, tell him how you feel, re-write that book on the shelf…the only one in twenty-five years that i haven’t burned.
 
what has the little voice inside your head been saying lately?
 
mine says to eat more peas, because i really love peas and it is time to go on a raw food diet again because it is what my body needs to heal, and yeah, the little voice knows that i don’t want to quit drinking diet coke or tequila, and the little voice isn’t asking me to quit forever, just for now while my body is healing.
 
what has the little voice inside your head been saying lately?
 
i’d bet you fifty bucks that if we followed its suggestions, we’d be happier and healthier.
 
what has the little voice inside your head been saying lately?
 
mine says to love lighter and brighter, take myself less seriously, and give you the fifty bucks if you need it.
 
what has the little voice inside your head been saying lately?
 
my little voice told me to tell your little voice that i’m grateful it is speaking. i’m grateful you’re listening.
