I can’t sleep.
It’s after 2am now, and still I’m lying here wide awake, staring at the darkness, listening to the silence.
It won’t leave my mind, won’t give me peace, and I am powerless. At the mercy of my own thoughts, tormented by my own mind.
When I feel hard done by, or wronged in some way, it’s a huge struggle to let it go. My mind plays it over and over and demands a different outcome, despite knowing that it is done, it is finished, and no amount of replaying it will change the result.
And so I lie here, wide awake. Tired but sleepless. Wishing it had gone differently.
Life is a journey, full of ups and downs, twists and turns, lessons to be learned.
And even though I know that “long time no see” is a much cleverer answer to the dingbat “ENTURY” than my own response, I still feel that “end of the century” is a perfectly acceptable one.
Don’t get me wrong, though: we would still have lost that table quiz. ;)
