i've got a plan, i've got an atlas in my hands

sometimes, life can feel like nothing but a burden. 
all you want to do is sleep, but the thousand worries on your mind won't let you. You're tossing and turning, waking up even more exhausted than before. 
theoretically, everything is going just fine, but as often as you tell this to yourself, the sick feeling in your stomach won't go away.
you're tired, so bloody tired. tired of always trying so hard, tired of doing everything you're supposed to all the time, tired of being the girl that never seems to fail.
then, one moment changes everything, even if only for a little while. as the sun shines through your window, it becomes so clear all of a sudden; 
nobody is expecting you to be perfect, nobody but yourself.
the world won't come crashing down if you fail one test, if you eat that cookie even though you're trying to be healthy, if you don't play the piano every single day of the week. 
failing is a natural step on the road of success and your imperfections make out the person you are.
