“How do you do that?” She stared into the sky, her voice shaky. “How do you survive in a world like this without worrying about the future or the fate of human kind?” Her mother looked at her for a while, pondering for a minute.
“There is no point in worrying about things I can’t control“, she replied. “What matters is what I have now and what I do at this moment. You never know what’s around the corner. Do I think about the future? We all do. But I want to live and I think that is what matters the most.”
Meh, I got this idea in the shower (yay for shower thoughts, anyone?) and it didn’t exactly turn out the way I wanted it to, so I may actually just go in and edit this tomorrow if the words flow easier. 🙂
“Learning to forgive is an art very few master.”
Today’s sentence people! 🙂 Here it is!
“Learning to forgive is an art – I know this by personal experience. I used to hold grudges and never did I understand why life just felt so incredibly difficult when I only could see the mistakes other people did and most of all, by not being able to forgive others I could not forgive myself. Learning to forgive is an art very few can master. We live in a society that will let us know about our mistakes every day and the very day we do something right they won’t even acknowledge it. That is just how humans work, I guess. But as time went and I slowly learnt to be more open minded I also learned to slowly forgive – not only myself but forgiving those who needed it even if they hadn’t made me wrong in any way because I decided that seeing the good in every person I met or heard about was the only way of me surviving in such a deceitful world.”
Note, this is not even near my own personal experience. I was brought up to never judge a person without getting to know them first. I base this on pure imagination. To me, forgiving has always been quiet easy – there are very few people I actually took forever to forgive, but only because they caused me emotional harm that I have to live with for the rest of my life. I do my best to not hold grudges and I do my best to set a good example for my nieces. I want to prove that there is good in every human being. Remember this: no one is born to hate, you’re taught to hate. Do what is right and just love unconditionally and just do your best to forgive. If you can’t, that’s fine. But do your best either way. 🙂
Okay, so for 365 days, I will post a sentence and the goal is to make an own story based on that sentence! I would be happy if people would join me – this has been done a million times before, but can it be done too many times? There are millions of ideas waiting to be written and no story is like the other. Join the diversity!
Starting January 1st and will end on December 31st 2017! Make this year a creative challenge and keep that promise to yourself to let your creative mind wander and just write! If you’d rather draw a comic or a picture, take a photograph or even write a song or make a short animated movie based on one or more sentences please do so! The more options, the more creative approaches.
Some posts will be scheduled due to holidays or me being out of town – but it’ll all be planned beforehand! 🙂
