Sometimes when things seem to be fallinf into pieces, they may actually be falling into place.
Today’s Daily Prompt: Imagine we lived in a world that’s all of a sudden devoid of color, but where you’re given the option to have just one object keep its original hue. Which object (and which color) would that be?
The world isn’t black and white, nor technicolour when your eyes are closed. Close them and ask yourself whether you see anything. Well, did you? Of course not. It’s pitch black. It’s dark. It’s lonely.
When your eyes are open, what do you see? Do you see the colours of life? Or does the world seem too grey – lifeless; meaningless?
This world, and indeed our lives, can either be lifeless or colourful. It’s up to us to bring light to this world. We need to shine like the sun. We need to let the gloom disappear. For there will be others who rely on us to show them what light is. Some will silently cry out for help. Help them see the colours of life. Be the light that shines on the beauty that is nature. The beauty that is life.
DO IT FOR YOURSELF
Because it makes you happy.
Sunshine makes me happy. Everytime I see the sun shining brightly, especially in places where I don’t expect to see it, somehow inspires me. I tend to have more energy and stay happy for longer.
The picture below was taken in Oslo, Norway- a place where I didn’t expect to see any sunshine particularly at this time of the year. I took it as a sign of great things to come!

The world wants you to be somebody else
But deep within you, you already know who you want to be
It’s just a question of how badly you want it
It’s your job to become the person you want to be
“Perhaps too much of everything is as bad as too little.” – Edna Ferber
Do you agree with this statement on excess? (Thanks for sharing the quote,LuckyestGirl!)
It must be so difficult to have too much of everything. Imagine having as much bad luck as good. After winning millions of (insert currency of preferrence), you get robbed. What about having the most attractive significant other who cheats in front of you? It’s just impossible.
I can’t begin to imagine having all the wealth in the world and all the luxuries it may bring while over half of the world is struggling. On the flipside, I can’t imagine not eating anything or living in the streets.
Bang in the middle. That’s where I’d like to be.
Perfection is shallow, unreal and fatally uninteresting.
Stop talking about the problem. Start thinking about solutions.
Life is an adventure in itself. It’s the greatest, most challenging adventure there is. Survival, of course is the main goal whether it is your personal survival, that of your genes, species or the world. For me, nothing captures this as much as a portrait of a child (which in this case is my cousin) blissfully playing.
To what extent would you influence children’s development, i.e. life adventure?
