Twenty Seconds

Twenty Seconds

I've got twenty seconds with you.

That's it.

After that, nothing matters.

You're somewhere else.

Seven, eight, nine...

Almost there...

Come back.

There you are.

Your first 20 seconds.

You've already decided.

Whether you like this or not.

A message.

A song.

A conversation.

A person.

Twenty words.

Twenty steps.

To joy.

Fill your first twenty with good stuff.

Here's twenty:

Please love yourself a little bit more than yesterday because unconditional self-compassion is all you truly have in the end.
