"Thinking about monastic ideals is not the same as living up to them, but at any rate such thinking has an important place in a monk’s life, because you cannot begin to do anything unless you have some idea what you are trying to do."
Thomas Merton

Capricorn Zodiac Facts

This whole post is relatable but the last sentence stuck out to me the most. Mainly because it is exactly how I feel. I don’t like rushing myself, I like taking my time, especially when working towards personal goals. Is this wrong of me? I feel this pressure to be working on music/singing/guitar in all of my spare time. And I do, sometimes, but other times I just want to relax and not do anything (read, watch a movie, walk). It’s just that, writing lyrics and making songs is like working and can be draining for me. I have to be in the right mindset and it’s not something that happens all the time. 
I’m not sure how much I really believe in horoscopes but it is amazing how reading through these various posts makes me feel better about the way I act. It is validating my thoughts and actions. Reading these makes me more confident in myself and my personality instead of feeling so different from other people. Am I the only one who feels this way?
