I think it is about time

It’s time to stop living in your head. It’s time to cut the bullshit and take off theblindfolds().

It’s time to ignore the two fingers pointed at your head — it’s time to tell the difference between what is truly lethal and what is only painful.

It’s time to stop living by the words of the dead, to stop counting the steps you walk each day.

It’s time to take a deep breath — not to calm you down — but because it feels damn fucking good to be alive.

It’s about time you let go of that grudge you’re holding against yourself, one finger at a time.
The last petal that blows in the wind should never be I love me not.

Tc: tha nks for the beautifull and livfe alive text, i will leave you one of the poet that also relates;

Sometimes we have built the walls ourselves, but often it is simply the nature of things that walls that once served and sheltered us at certain periods of our life only imprison us when we have remained within their confines for too long. [...] Often, in order to stay alive, we have to unmake a living in order to get back to living the life wanted for ourselves.

-- David Whyte
from "Crossing the Unknown Sea: Word as A Pilgrimage of Identity"
