I took a nap today. For the first time in ages. And now I remember why I really don't like them--because I woke up feeling like a rather sick slug lol.
But as I was drifting off, I was musing about how I like it when my inspiration flows consistently. Then I started thinking about how sometimes I get stuck in negative inspiration, which naturally (or not so naturally), led to thoughts about trying to fix what's not broken.
I think that, as humans, we have a tendency to want to fix that which is broken. But what happens when we try to fix something that isn't broken?
We generally screw it up.
Things work the way they do for a reason. Ecosystems, machines, people, relationships--when they are functioning well, every part moves as it should in conjunction with the whole. Everything is as it should be.
But when we start to tinker and prod, to attempt fixing that which isn't broken, we take something that is okay and throw it off balance.
Things no longer work in conjunction as they should.
Because we have been trying to fix something that didn't need fixing in the first place.
I think that I do that too much with the D/s aspect of our relationship. And all it does is throw a wrench in the works.
And sometimes, it's just very difficult to see the perfection that is right there in front of you when you are too busy trying to fix things. Because you're so busy trying to fix it, you didn't stop to realize that nothing really needed fixing.
