There I was, 10 feet tall feeling mighty and full of delight. Sun on my face and a nippy breeze upon my back. The air was fresh, sun was warm and all just seemed right. As I carved a path of good intentions, it suddenly turned black. The road was long and dark and lonesome as I used my sense of touch, to navigate my plight. As I carried on in such fear of having lost my way, a monkey appeared with horn like ears and a Trident and uttered in a raspy voice " would you like to better your day"? I truly did for I had begun to wallow in that self loathing pit of dismay. I needed a rescue. He said "follow me to my lair of transcending beauty and pain free euphoria. Come along, no time to waste". He gripped my hand tightly, a deep dark path of uncertainty I did creep. We arrived upon his lair quickly and it was a beauty to be seen. It was warm, inviting and magnetic to my needs. That devilish monkey played havoc on my mind and handed me his candy. I contemplated for just a moment that seemed like ages all the same. Then I threw them down and crushed them beneath my feet, cut a rug upon that bastards face and dashed right out the door! He had me for a moment, nearly had me beat, but I came back to my senses and conquered this dreaded feat.
As I flung open the door, there it was in all its glory...... everything was wonderful, pleasent and vivid. I passed this test and survived this mess to breathe one day more. It may be just a single battle, but Im choosing to win the war.
Simply put, my will was tested. I walked away. Smarter. Braver. Wiser. Today is day 7.
