Important owl sh*t to do (Tarot of Michelle)

Keep perspective. Save focus for the things that really matter. I can’t do it all.

Every time I see this internet meme, I laugh out loud. It reminds me so much of myself.

I think the owl looks like it is striding along at a furious clip, ready to kick ass. The focus, the expression, the fast pace—that’s all me, when I’m concentrating on getting shit done. And this owl reminds me of just how absurd it is for me to be so focused on things that seem so important in the moment….but are actually very trivial, in the grand scheme of things. Further heightening the absurdity, owls don’t run, they fly, and the grammar is wrong, but the meme still absolutely succeeds in its message.

What does an owl have to do that is so important, anyway? Nothing!

What do I have to do that is so important, anyway? Um……nothing!

I am far too serious, and take myself far too seriously. My perspective is skewed, and I need to get my head back on straight. I attach a lot more importance to stupid shit than I should. And, I can’t possibly accomplish everything on my to-do list. So I should save my important owl shit for the tasks that really matter.
