For the first time, i truely can relate with the meaning of the words "life is like a book!".not just because of the sentence in the statement but the true meaning of the words.The deeper meaning of the phrase.
If you did what i suggested above,you will see that you can relate with it more vividly than you ever gave mental thoughts to. In my mind's eye,the pictures play real;revealing intensely a real book with every page for everyday that one lives on earth.Every alphabet linked to another in a series of words that tell the tale of the everyday experiences of each one of us
It marvels me to understand that as i live each moment, a pen does weave words on paper;And that the choices i make become an illustration and a story line that must truelly not end till the day i breath my last.
Now, here comes the part that chills me to sweet wonder :Imagine the fact that your everyday makes a single page,it means that in one year you would have made up to three hundred and sixty five(365) page book with your life's experiences.
Wow! isn't that so interesting?
Now again if you lived on earth to see your 28th year birthday,you will have made ten thousand, two hundred and twenty(10,220) pages volume of literary work. At age 41,you will have made a fourteen thousand,nine hundred and sixty five (14,965) pages work. At age 50, you will have eighteen thousand,two hundred and fifty(18,250) pages work. At age 70, you will have twenty five thousand,five hundred and fifty (25,550) pages work and on and on and on. It is amazing!
Truth be told: sometimes,we are not all good composers. It hits home that at one point or the other,the words get jumbled up. On the other hand,some of us make better writers and communicate succinctly and clearly with beautiful well orchestrated story-lines that makes a master read.
Just like in the literary world where some writers make lots of references in making up and pointing to the real issues;in life at least for the first few years of your life, you most probably have to make lots of references from more accomplished predecessors to help you write better.
Every child is like a clean sheet or slate.At first he/she keeps referring to others.After a while,when they grow up to become adults they write with flair . Perhaps at 50 or 60 years,enough would have been gathered to make a happy or a sad piece.
Unfortunately we do not stop to wonder how delightful we want our read to be or to even wonder at the direction our flow should take. In the long run,we often fall between the category and invariably make either a pleasant or a boring read.
Of course it will be great every once in a while to help yourself understand that the moment you share in your life with the people close to you will make a good read if you filled it with joy, laughter and giving; than with sadness and grief.
It does matter what your pen weaves along the pages :especially since you can control the story.If your choices can be different and better,your 'theme' can make a Blockbuster. ..oh,How blessed it will be to make a great read.
So, LIVE IT UP and HAVE A BLAST. You've got a story to write!
