Daily Prompt: This Is Your Life

If you could read a book containing all that has happened and will ever happen in your life, would you? If you choose to read it, you must read it cover to cover. 

I’m very tempted to say YES but then when you think about it, a predictable life is no life at all.

when I was 17...

when I was 17…

Life is a journey, it’s a one-way trip filled with challenges, fear, surprises, happiness…all kinds of emotions that makes us human.

If life becomes predictable, then

Loneliness will not be as lonely

Challenges will not be as challenging

Fear will not be as fearful

But also

Happiness will not be as happy

Surprises will not be as surprising

Memories will not be as memorable and

Love will not be as loving

Life then will not be as remarkable

For it’s no longer a journey, but a destination

  3. I totally agree, “Life is a journey, it’s a one-way trip filled with challenges, fear, surprises, happiness…all kinds of emotions that makes us human.” Life is about surprises, of making mistakes and learning from it. It is about choices and molding ourselves into the best person we can be. Thanks.
