How apt that this brand new year starts with a Loose Bloggers Consortium (LBC) post the title of which has been suggested by the newest member of the consortium, Lin. Appropriate, because it is the discipline of that one post per week that kept me posting with some kind of regularity in my blog. It was otherwise a lacklustre year for blogging for me with posting very irregular and the inspiration to write posts for the blog rather insipid.
And, what a topic to start the year off on!
Like most of us, I too grew up with stories that started with “Once upon a time”! And almost always ended with, “And they lived happily ever after!”
I wish that I had never grown up.
There have been just too many stories that started with “Once upon a time” and most of them did not end up with “and they lived happily ever after.” In all fairness though, some of them did.
I am sure that this would be the take of almost all of us if we are honest with our stories about ourselves. And we keep starting new stories with the same beginning hoping that there will be the happy endings.
We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.
