The Daily Prompt is “Unravel”. This is the feeling that we all get at times. We see our plans “unravel” due to unforeseen circumstances. The mental image is a nice ball of yarn and it becomes “unraveled” after a kitten or cat finds it and decides it is something to play with.
In a way, the kitten/cat analogy is very accurate because we try to manage our lives and keep things nice and orderly, but there are times when no matter how hard we try they just refuse to stay in the shape that we put them in. We can always attribute the phenomenon of “unraveling” to something or someone but in reality it is just an example of the futility of trying to create too much order out of what was clearly designed to be chaos.
The key is how we handle things when they “unravel”. I personally prefer to play with the ball of yarn along with the cats for a while in order to remaind myself that life is not all about deadlines and plans. Life is meant to be lived and enjoyed, and even when we are re-rolling the ball of yarn that is our life we should always remember the fun that we had while things did not go exactly as planned.
