Waking Up

Wednesday, October 28, 2015

I guess I've been in the process of waking up for the last four years. I have to say, the world is pretty complicated in terms of, well, just living.  

You would think that if everyone just considerate, patient, positive, and honest, then the world would be happy. Except that it's not that simple, because not everyone is considerate, people can be selfish, liars, and see the glass as half empty. But there's a key word in the preceding sentence––can. People can be selfish, they can be liars, they can be pessimistic; it's a choice. 

For all of you Harry Potter fans, here's one of my favorite quotes from the Order of the Phoenix movie: 

“Besides, the world isn't split into good people and Death Eaters. We've all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That's who we really are.” 

- Sirius Black

As for myself, I guess I'm choosing to try and wake up in the light. 

Have a good evening, readers. If you're out there.
