This Is My 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. 

Oh, I don’t know… It’s like being able to predict the future or read other people’s mind. If I know already what is going to happen what is the use then? It is like going to a movie that you have seen already or re-reading a book, there will be no thrill or suspense anymore. All the surprises are out, there will be nothing new to expect or to look forward to. Tempting but I’m afraid I have to decline.

Unless… I can change what about to happen, correct past mistakes and determine the outcome;  then I’m all for it.

  1. I am interested–and positively so–to learn the stories of others. Read my own life’s book? No, thanks. Except I like your qualification–changing what might happen, changing what has happened? That would be great! Thanks!


    1. I never think of reading someone else’s true to life story in general but there are some exception like Sylvia Plath, the Bronte sisters, to name few. But just anybody else… no. It’s like Voyeurism (for the lack of a better word to describe the act)

      1. Voyeurism. Yes, that’s fair. I’d like to know more about the Brontes, in fact, the sisters and their brother. He was a painter and is painted out of the better-known portrait of the women. And there are other lives I’d like to know more about. Among these, living writers. Joyce Carol Oates, Karen Armstrong, John Phillip Newell, and on.


      2. I didn’t even know there was a brother.
        Another person I want to interview if I can is Hemingway. I would like to learn about his life, his motivations why he did what he did. All those writers/artists like Van Gogh who have chosen to end their lives I want to know the reasons why. Maybe because I somehow suspect that I can relate.


      3. Greetings. This is a great post, as well as the comments that followed. Don’t mean to butt in, but maybe they were, too wise, to stay living amongst regular people of their time. Very discouraging to see what’s wrong, but be unable to change a thing. Sorry if I interrupted. #NOTHINGMatters

    1. In my one year of blogging, I’ve been nominated for countless awards already but I have yet to accept one. Though I’m very flattered and grateful for the attention and recognition I don’t believe in it and I find the procedure rather tedious. I hope you understand and don’t think less of me. I appreciate the gesture very much. Thank you from the bottom of my heart but I’m afraid I have to decline.


Be memorable. Say something unforgettable.
