知己知彼, 百战不殆

In work,
in climbing,
in running,
in people,
in life.

Though I will have to say I don’t need to know my enemies since I don’t have any.

Answer

 

I will do what I feel is right, work for what I want, control what I can within my means. If the universe says “nah” I’ll move on into other pastures, and be so grateful about what I have in my life.

Condom challenge except it was anxiety/depression hugging my face like a wet glove.

A long weekend that felt like an entire week of battle, bracing imaginary storms of hardened flesh of clenched muscles, relentless anxiety, heart palpitations and the life-draining flow of blood, an endless red flood between my thighs.

My mind is in a thick jungle, through the canopy blinks of sunshine, erratic twinkles with false promises of the clearing where glory can pour its rays on me, the light flood of bliss that never occurred.

The tangle of nerves and irrational fears presents a veil that shrouds my vision in gloom, placing everything in blind spots, including the yellow jug in the direct path I embarked on to launch myself up a volume on the wall, the perfect collision with the right side of my eye, red raw skin, the delayed flood of pain slowly washing over the tiny crater in my face.

But I know, only when I float like a driftwood on the currents of the flood then will there be no more blood, some pain and all glory.
