Confusion

The fog

Descends, swirls, swoops.

The fog

Envelops the brain

Blurs the vision

Confusion.

Too many thoughts

Too many decisions

So many options

Which way is up

Down

Jumbled up

Upside down.

The fog

Envelops the brain

Blurs the vision

Confusion.

Breathe

Take a step back

Write those thoughts down

What decisions must be made?

Consider your options.

Which way is up

Write them down

Get up

Don’t get down.

Thoughts thought through

Options considered

Decisions made

This way is up

That way is down.

This is the direction I shall follow.

The fog

It lifts

The illusion of confusion

Swirls away

Vision has perfect

Clarity.

Confusion

      Absolutely! Important to remember though when you are in the midst of confusion that there is light at the end of the tunnel xxx

    That could have been my mind this week – I wrote down all the confusing thoughts, took a couple of actions and felt far clearer #prose4t
