a friend once told me

that when she senses there is something she must do, change, deal with, whatever it may be, but

just doesn’t know

what  + | or how, she respectfully asks, “BRING IT ON.” Essentially saying: I can’t figure it out, or may not want to, so SHOW ME. It is easier than mulling and carrying a weight, I know. But oh, it is also so easy to go on doing nothing + dismiss + ignore.

yet after pushing back the keyboard + saying exactly that — something i have done many times before — a moment ago, i immediately responded:

YOU WANT ME TO BRING IT ON?
