How can GIMP's Blur Tool blur way more swiftly, effectually?

Apprise me if you know better examples. I trust obvious what boundary I'm trying to Blur — the two different hues of grass or water. And the forehead with the bad haircut, because the hair cut off too abruptly.

xenoid advised

If you want to use the blur tool: you can try to increase the "Force" in the Tool options and/or use a harder brush. You don't need to click hundreds of times, just depress the left mouse button and wiggle the mouse over the cut.

I tried this wiggling for the past ten minutes, but the boundary blurs too little and slowly! All this wiggling's WEARYING and FATIGUING my hand!!! I need the Blur tool to work more forcefully, expeditiously, nimbly!

  1. What if I increase the tool size to cover the whole borderline? Aim my mouse so that I cover the whole border. Then depress my mouse and keeping it at the same spot, without any budging or wiggling?

  2. Pls review my settings for the Blur tool? I turned up Force to 100 as xenoid advised, but did I overlook anything else?
