Live your life!

 Author's note: These lyrics gave me an inspiring thought about life.

Lyrics: We live, we love - Superchick
We live, we love, we forgive and never give up
Cuz the days we are given are gifts from above
And today we remember to live and to love

As I write these lyrics down, it reminds me of this one quote that really explains the song: ,”Yesterday is history, tomorrow’s a mystery. Today is a gift, that’s why we call it the present.”  When you think about it, life really is a gift. Everyone was born for a reason and you want to live your life to the fullest. Why waste your life away doing things that you don’t want to accomplish? Instead, live each day like it was your last. Do everything that you desire to.

Zebras have different Stripes

Author's Note: Have you ever wondered how everything seems alike but is actually different? Well, by reading this, you can see my opinion on the differences of this world.

Isn’t it crazy how nothing in this world is alike? Take the stripes for a zebra as an example. No zebra has the exact same stripes. Sort of relating to how you are your own person. You have the ability to be yourself and be proud of it. You’re able to remind yourself that no one is like you.

Wouldn’t it be crazy if everyone in the whole world was the same? If they did the same things at the same time? Life would be so boring if everyone was identical. Everybody would be a spitting image of the person beside them. All the animals of the world would roam around at similar times searching for alike foods. 

Twins tend to be spitting images. Especially identical twins. Except what does a “spitting image” mean? Well it means something is clearly similar or alike to something else. As an example, someone would say ,” You’re a spitting image of ‘so and so’!” while comparing you to another person. Just remind yourself to be you, because everyone else is taken.

Who's calling?

 Author's: In my writing circle we picked out a sentence and had to improvise from there so here is what I wrote:

You come home and check your phone messages. You look at third one and freeze. Why is the earth starting to shake? It’s trembling beneath my feet!!!! The message on the phone plays back and is telling me to stay calm. How can I stay calm if the ground is splitting in two?? What in the world can I do in this situation? All of a sudden, I fall down, down, down... into the deep black hole.
