In 55 Words FD MC Challenge 2017 – Day 309
I’ve been thinking about a lot of things lately. One of them is voice recognition software. Why? Frankly, because I want to be able to create more things but without overexerting myself in the process and something like this could go a long way in helping me achieve just that. For now, it’s just a thought, but it’s there, alongside with plenty of others concerning Spell… B-O-U-N-D as a whole and what I want my place in the fetish community to be as I continue to go along on this journey.
Speaking of finding one’s place, that’s not always easy, is it? Well, for some people, it almost seems like the easiest thing in the world as everything seems to align perfectly for them from the get-go. For others, it’s one hardship after another, only seeing grey instead of clear blue skies. All places in the world have been discovered by someone else and, try as one may, you just can’t fit in anywhere.
It’s all a matter of perception of course. A twisted view of things can only produce twisted outcomes in a neverending loop of self-fulfilling prophecies. I’ve been down that road myself so I’m talking from experience here. On the darkest periods of my existence, I’ve felt like I didn’t belong anywhere, that my place was to be stuck inside my own mind, away from everything and everyone. I’ve felt like a burden, I’ve felt like trash, I’ve felt like shit. When you’re down there, in the gutter, it’s so easy to stay down, wrapped in self-pity and misguided bitterness. It’s easy to make your place a festering cesspool of misery instead of a creative, happy one. It’s easy to blame others for your shortcomings, even easier to push them away, breaking everything good in the process.
I urge you all not to go there, no matter how easy it is to do so. I’m still discovering my place in life, but I know it involves being creative and helping others within reasonable limits. My place can only grow as I allow myself to experience more things, starting with my writings and moving beyond them. If you haven’t found your place yet, may you do so and be happy.
Okay, I’ve been going on with this for a while now and so it’s time to leave the intro behind and move on to the story of the day. Yes, it’s about places, a bit of discovery wrapped around in a sweet package. I hope you like it. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and see you all tomorrow.
A Place for Him
His house was empty, office overcrowded. The restaurant food tasted of broken dreams. It made his teeth grind, head feel like a ticking bomb.
John drove away from the madness, saw Diana standing in the rain. There was a place for him in the entrancing pools of her eyes. He smiled and opened the door.
