And I lived to Tell the Tale

Everybody’s life is different, and some struggle more, some know more obstacles than others. But I often hear people who overcome those and they say their struggle made them more human, it empowered them in a way.

To put it in a nutshell, their experience was enriching.

What I would want to share today, with you and with the whole world, is that we are all Humans. Human beings. Being Human. And being Human also means being perfectible, improvable. 

Being Human just can’t mean being perfect, but some of us try their hardest to be that perfect person. This leads to the struggle to be perfect, and that’s where obstacle come in the way.

And I can tell you today, that I, as a teenager, being quite idealistic, I tried to reach perfection too. But it has had a cost : it nearly killed me, and it took part of my health away.

Don’t try to be perfect, we’re “only humans after all” ( beautiful song here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L3wKzyIN1yk )

–  That which does not kill us makes us stronger –

Friedrich Nietzsche

Re-blogging 1O1

HELLO THERE !

As you can see, I’ve written two articles today (Oh, inspiration…) and my only will is to continue again, so I’m thinking about all the articles I want to write.

First, I always find a title for what I want to write BEFORE actually starting writing it, which makes that I have a lot of article possibilities, but not always the time to write them (so, yes, I have a list full of titles in my notes app on my phone…)

The next articles will come in a few days I hope, I’ve got a lot to make you discover about.

Stay tuned, get updated, and be curious !

Border

Today’s prompt : Border 

I’m very happy today to share today’s prompt, something I haven’t done for a very long time and it’s a part of why I’m so happy do retry this writing exercise.

We’re in a a world where borders have always been a problem. Since the ancient times, kingdoms have always had the will to push their borders accross another country and to invade them.

Religion was helping during Middle Age, as religions and civil wars spread across the Old Continent.

Asia wasn’t spared either during all the conflicts between China and Japan.

The two World Wars are also an example of this, Belgium borders didn’t count anymore for  the german army who used that country to go to France. Hitler, with the Anschluss, invaded Poland.

And the same things repeat again and again, to the world we know today, and with the migrants crisis all over the world.

Daily Prompt : 1984

You’re locked in a room with your greatest fear. Describe what’s in the room

That’s gonna be a very short post, as there’s not a lot to describe about what you can see in your own room that can frighten you.

In the room, my bed. A double bed, more precisely. On its left, a wardrobe and on the right, a big mirror. It’s the night, curtains are shut down, only shadows are to be seen. I lock the door and go silently to bed, looking for a little warmth. I lay there for a few minutes and then I see something silent, but moving in my room’s bathroom. Here it is. The thief. Now my greatest fear has taken place. A thief, holding a gun is in my room. Whoah. And I’m locked there, with no possibilities of going out. I’ll be fake asleep and we’ll see what happens, hoping that nothing goes wrong.

Weekly Photo Challenge : Treats

For many, candies aren’t a favorite indulgence. Maybe you’re a savory food lover, or you’ve gone on a beautiful vacation to treat yourself. Perhaps some quiet time alone with a beloved novel is your greatest pleasure. This week, share with us a photo of something that you consider a marvelous treat.

Hello everyone !

It’s been a while since my last post, I know it and I have no excuses ! But you won’t blame me if a lot of things occured in my life, would you ? 🙂

This time I’ll only post that ~post~ and then I’ll tell you my story later!

I love tea, that’s a fact everybody around me knows, and what do I do if I want to have a little rest and have a good time? Let’s guess… TEA !!! Just sitting on the couch, maybe watching TV, with a great warm tea is like Paradise to me.

I like it hot, with any kind of tea ( but the Genmaicha tea I bought is really awesome!) and a bit of honey (to satisfy my sweet tooth) and that’s when it’s infused only 1-2 minutes that it’s the best thing I’ve ever had in my day. Just imagine, some hot tea smoothly going down your throat, warming you up and making you feel great as if it was something really relaxing and resting… Who wouldn’t seriously do this?! (And if you don’t like tea, then imagine it’s coffee 😛 )

I don’t even know how to describe it greatly, as it’s one’s proper feelings that can express it, but if you’re the same as me, then you’ll know for sure what I mean. It’s only litlle things like that that can lighten up someone’s day!

Texte, je participe au jeu d’Elleirame !

Coucou tout le monde ! Je ne vous l’avais pas dit, mais je participe au jeu d’Elleirame, la page du jeu est ici : http://elleirame.wordpress.com/page-du-jeu/

Voici  mon texte, vous pouvez aussi le retrouver sur la page du jeu, ce texte va avec la photo de Rosamere.

Quelle idée de se retrouver seule, en pleine ville, alors que le soir commençait a tomber ? Je vous demande ! Moi, la pire gaffeuse universelle, je suis sortie ce matin en ville, à Paris, alors que j’avais fini de déménager la veille, et forcément, je me suis perdue ! Je m’étais arrêtée ce midi pour manger et j’avais cherché mon chemin tout le reste de l’après-midi…. On m’avait toujours dit que j’étais douée, mais maintenant, je voyais mieux ce qu’ils avaient voulu dire par là. A environ 19 heures, j’avais enfin trouvé une bouche de métro de la ligne que j’étais censée prendre.

Je descend donc jusqu’au quai et là, personne…. Une grande barrière est posée sur la voie du métro… On peux voir également un message sur ce que j’appelle le panneau « afficheur des horaires ». C’est écrit que ma ligne ne circulera pas ce soir là… oh non ! Comment vais-je faire pour rentrer chez moi ? Il ne reste qu’une solution, le bus… Encore faut-il que j’arrive à sortir de cet endroit… C’est vrai, quoi, les architectes du métro parisien, comme ce monsieur Bienvenue, ils auraient pu faire un effort pour faire des sorties directes ! Bienvenue, bienvenue, merci bien mais en attendant j’ai acheté des tickets de métro pour rien !

Toujours est-il que moi je peinais à rejoindre la sortie, et toutes ces allées, tous ces murs identiques avec trois tonnes de publicité sur les murs ne m’aidaient pas… Le couloir était désert. Seule la lumière allumée pouvait me rassurer. Il faisait froid, je n’avais pas pris mon blouson, un courant d’air passait… Rien. Il n’y avait absolument rien ni personne ici, à part moi. Ca avait un côté pas très rassurant, le soir, comme ça, au milieu d’un couloir de métro désert, avec pour seule compagnie des lampes et de la pub… J’avais carrément peur oui ! J’ai couru là où je pensais trouver la sortie, mais forcément, je me perdais encore et encore… jusqu’à ce que je la trouve enfin, cette sortie ! Il était à peine un peu plus de 19h30. Une demi-heure à chercher son chemin alors qu’on ne rencontre pas âme qui vive, c’est franchement long ! Bon, c’était une bonne chose de faite. Maintenant restait à trouver le bon arrêt de bus…

Voilà, j’espère que vous avez aimé !
