Every circumstance in life has the potential to be a learning experience. If you are open to it, life has a way of changing you. Every second you can change. Change the way you think. Change the way you view the world. Change the way you live. Change the way you treat others. You can always choose to change for the better or to change for the worst. It is all a choice. With those choices, come the repercussions and rewards. Whether good or bad, every experience is a lesson that you can allow to affect you in a positive or a negative way.
I’ll start this by saying I am a VERY opinionated person and a vocal one at that!
Opinions are who we are, our morals, values and beliefs…..
Opinions are what make the world an interesting place. A world without different opinions would be a boring place….
Opinions are what make us who we are as an individual. They are based off things we have learned since day one, they are based off beliefs we have and the morals and values we stand on. It’s sad that our opinions are also 90% of the reason why we fight and treat others like crap. They are the number one reason why people make fun of others and find reasons to break someone’s spirit. It’s sad that we can’t just live knowing that you won’t always agree with someone but that is okay. It’s sad that people can’t agree to disagree and move on instead they feel the need to make fun, call names and belittle one another. I wonder if for one day you chose to allow others to have their point of view and you have yours and it still be okay if you’d realize how much happier you would be.
We close the door to the past and put the key in a safe place. Every so often we find ourselves revisiting the steps of that broken, rusty, dusty door hoping to find what use to be on the other side. What was once always there is now gone but hope is not lost. What we don’t realize is that what use to be our world will soon be replaced by a greater version then what we had. Replaced with something we can’t even start to dream of. The odd thing about all this is once we have it in our lives we can’t see ourselves without it even though we once never had it at all. A wise man once said; “Every new beginning comes from some other beginnings end”.
I write because it paints the portrait of who I am
I write to share my feelings and to associate myself with others
I write because it creates a beautiful song that tells my story and feeds my soul
I write because my pen is mightier than the sword as it helps me to stand up for what I believe in
I write for my sadness, happiness, pain and joy
I write to wash away my stress, worries and strife
I write because my words add colors to a cruel world painted in black and white
I write because I have an unrested mind full of waves of emotion and ideas
I write for my existence
