Five-Hundred Word Challenge 866: Imaginary Obstacle Course

The day starts early. It starts with waking up. There are things that need to be done and there are things that need to be done in order to progress through some sort of imaginary obstacle course.

The course is long and lengthy and sometimes it stretches far beyond what the imagination can see. It constantly changes shape and reforms itself as I try to get through it one step at a time.

Whilst getting through the obstacle course I occasionally decide to pause and just sit there. Often in these times the course ends up shortening itself quite considerably. So long as I sit there long enough, the exit approaches and I have less to do to get out. However, this has the undesired effect of making the next obstacle course longer than I would have hoped and so therefore I end up having to work that little bit harder to get to the end.

I could argue that this is not my fault, but of course it all rests on me to take care of the issues at hand and thus complete the course rather than let it continually elongate over successive days. However, I do like sitting down and so the course will keep on reshaping itself into successively longer forms and there will be nothing that I can do about it unless I get the doing of the things done and then move onto other things.

Perhaps I will exit the obstacle course and find some sort of beach on which I can just relax all day and therefore do nothing other than relax. That would make for a lazy process and a lazy proceeding, but perhaps that’s just the way that I am feeling and as such that might just be the best course of action that I could take in any given situation, which might just mean I might just do.

I shall cast off all obligation and abandon the obstacle course and then do this thing instead. I will relax all day. I may even go for a small swim. There shall be much doing nothing and it will be just what the metaphorical doctor ordered, so that is what I will do. I will throw all obligation by the wayside and embrace this thing that I would prefer to do, which involve very little and reading my book, and some photography and some writing and some swimming and a few other things, but mostly doing nothing. Nothing is the way to the thing and the thing that involves relaxing is the thing that I shall embrace so that I can relax and do nothing and all of those other things that I want to do that involve doing either nothing, or as little as possible.

However, before all of that I need to run an obstacle course so I can get a few things out of the way, so I will do that, then discard everything, then do a lot of nothing.
