One Thousand Word Challenge 97: Lengthy and Aimless Ramble

Feeling tired and all of that other stuff, so it is once more a time for a lengthy and aimless ramble. Don’t know where I’m going but I’m following the proverbial road and where that leads might just be into the woods of destiny. Maybe that will be what it is that I need to grasp this morning. The driving forward and the hoping for the best. That is somehow what I will aim for, or something. Maybe try for less repetition. However, maybe there will be a lot of repetition. It depends on how much repetition I feel is worth repeating.

Anyway, I’m tired and it is morning and it is that day that some people love and some people don’t love and that is fine by me either way. For me it is a day of working and the work needs to be done and I need to power on and get to the end of the day and hope for the best so that I can move toward doing other things but soon I will find myself in a deep, dark wood that I need to traverse so that I can get to the other end, but perhaps there will be things int here that I would much rather prefer I do not encounter. This is something that I need to consider.

However, in the face of fear, should we always cower? I would argue that sometimes you should face things regardless of how scary they seem as it may mean you find the way to overcome that which holds you back. There is of course the fear of learning something about yourself and who you are, but that can be something that you can then turn around and make into something else. You can gain the ability to move forward and stride outward and all of that other stuff. Things to consider and plenty of time in which they can be considered. All things worth considering.

However, there also is the concern of being trapped in the woods. Facing fears that I might finds within myself, or even perhaps external to myself is something I should be able to get past, but what if I am trapped in there forever? What if the woods are able to change their path and layout and thus, even though it may seem as though I am fine and all of that other stuff, I am in fact not fine and stuck there forever? What if the only way out is through? I do not know what I would do.

Of course when I say this, I mean the only way out being to abandon whatever vehicle it is that I am using and then walk my way out. Well, now that I think about it, I guess what I would do is use my legs to get myself out of these darkened woods and thus hopefully find some sort of success of which I could embrace and call my own until I share it with others so that they would be able to also find their way out of whatever it is that they find themselves caught in.

Maybe they wouldn’t have some sort of darkened, deep, transforming woods to deal with. Maybe their imprisonment would be some sort of massive ocean, or something else. There would be so many choices. I could have my victory, but the only way to make sure that it is not wasted is to make sure that I can use that victory to help others out of their predicaments and thus hopefully build stronger relationships as more and more people are helped out and we all go on our merry way to being better people, not just to ourselves, but to the world at large. That would be a great thing to do, I think.

Plenty of great things out there to do, of course, and one must do what they can to better themselves as well as others, but only to the extent that is best. You don’t want to go interfering with people unless it is necessary, so yeah. That’s a thing.

Well, I think that this is the point where I’ve hit what I can write for the time of day that it currently is and so I think it may be best to look at wrapping this bit of writing up and then doing the other things that I need to, or at least looking to do. There still are a few hours left in the day and there are other things out there. Today is going to be a day that involves the doing of things and maybe some of that involves helping some people out, but of course that is yet to be seen and all of that other stuff that I usually write about and so on and so forth and you get the idea, so really I should just look at seeing what I can and cannot wrap up before I get on with it and do the other things that need to be done, of which there are a few and there are plenty and there is more than enough for me to complain about, but perhaps today there shall be no complaining and instead there will just be the doing and then after the doing there will be complaining. Can complain after and not during.

Actually, I could complain during but that wouldn’t be as good a thing to do, I don’t think. Well, not today anyway. Today I can put the complaining off for a little bit, but maybe I will do some alter so that I can at least feel as though I’ve done my fair share for the day. Need to make sure you do enough; not too much and not too little. It’s a fine balance to strike, but it’s one you need to reach for so that things don’t go out of balance.

Anyway, time for other things.

The time it took to write one thousand words: 10:37:69

Rather fast, I think.
Also rather sloppy.

Written at home.
