Why Life Denies Prefrences?


This is a response to the one-word prompt “Prefer” by “The Daily Post.”

What are your preferences in #Life; what do you perfer to get out of life? Whatever they are, chances are you will not get them in life or at least not as you first invission them. We rearly get what we want out of life, or to be more percise, we rearly get exactly what we want, but most times a verson of what we want. #Why is that the case? Why does in be ing denied our #prefrences in life, we usually get at least some verson of them instead?

The reason is is simple, perfection is impossible, but improvment is always pssible. By rearly ever getting exactly what we perfer in life, we learn that the important life lesson that perfection is not possible and only an “ideal.” Yet, because we in most cases get at least part of what we perfer or at least what we perfer but slightly altered in some way; we learn that if we keep pursuing our goals and working hard and deligently then progress and improvemnt in life is always possible.

So, no matter what your prefences in life is, know that while it is extreamly unlikly that you will acheive them in whole; if you keep at it, and work deligently, and never stop learning, then you will be able to keep improving your life towards your prefrences or goals in life. Life is never about perfection, but the persute of the ideal of perfection, thus constently improving one’s life.

The Passport of Life


This is a response to #the one-word prompt “Passport” by “The Daily Post.

If you travel regularly around the word or just to the country “next door,” you are very familiar with your #passport and do have one. Its pages will be filled with stamps #of all the foreign places you have been. In other words, a passport is a log/journal of all that you have seen and experienced, of the wider world in your #life so far. But if you think about it the passport of your country of origin used for travel, is not our only passport in life.

When one creates photo albums filled with photos of the things/events in your life that have affected you deeply, you are in a sense making a passport to log the significant parts of your life. When we keep a diary/journal, that is basically doing the same thing as a passport. All of our lives are/will be filled with lots of amazing, beautiful, and yes, even scary, ugly events and experiences; and throughout time, we humans have always wanted to remember them, record them for future generations to experience and learn from, and even have “keepsakes of.”

From journals, photos, antiques, letters, and keeping old tools even when no longer used; all of these are just some of the extensions of our 2nd “passport of life” that we keep. What is your passport like? How many filled “pages” does it have? What are some of the experiences recorded in it? If you don’t have one, why not?
