wasn’t that a game when we were little? i bet with a bit of encouragement, it would be fun to play as an adult too.
did you ever think something was going one direction, and you have an active imagination, and it all works out perfectly in your head… only to realize sometime later that, in fact, your idea and imagination isn’t quite based in reality… and then you start feeling a bit foolish and stupid… questioning both your own reality and imagination…?
did you ever set yourself up for disappointment…?
did you ever misunderstand…?
did you ever want something so much that you actually kept it from happening?
did you ever say “no, really, i’m fine” when you wanted to sadly say “help – i’m not doing so well”?
did you ever misread a situation… and then respond to that misinterpretation… only for it to take a loooooooong time to get worked out in the end?
did you ever think you had things under control, you weren’t really that affected by anything, and you were handling yourself well… only to find out you completely botched it up?
i’m feeling a bit mismatched at the moment. don’t worry – things are fine. i just feel really stupid. hopefully this emotion will subside quickly… perhaps a glass of warm milk or something might help.
then again, perhaps i’ll wake up on the other side of the bed tomorrow morning – that usually works for me. tomorrow is another day, and i can just learn from today and move forward.
so, Gentle Reader, until then – have a good now, and hope you’re looking forward to your tomorrow. i know i am.
