Flex, flex, flex

Everybody just trying to level up, stressing when they can’t keep up, Anxious because they haven’t gained anything to flex on lately

They don’t seem to realise that simply going for a walk in nature or picking up a book and sitting in the garden is very pleasurable, They miss out on the simple things, they miss out on the moments because they are chasing moments instead of living them…

Celebrate a simple life
Its a happy life
