What’s your most prized possession?
Material possessions I probably have more than enough.Whenever something catches my fancy, I tend to buy it if it is affordable. I cannot consider any of these things as my prized possession.
I think of friends, family, acquaintances, they are nice to have but I’m not sure they are my prized possession.
My most prized possession is good health. If I didn’t have good health, family, friends or acquaintances will shy away from me. I do not blame them.
Human nature is complex it’s not easy to interact with someone who is ill. Yes we all have compassion but when we witness it for a considerable length of time. The compassion turns to boredom, we start distancing ourselves with someone who is not well.
A healthy body and mind is the most prized possession for me, everything else is secondary!
How would your life be different if you were incapable of feeling fear? Would your life be better than it is now?
Fear is one word that ruins my life, I always have to think of so many things before I decide to do tasks that are too complex, one fine example is I don’t go out in the evening, the reason is I’m afraid of all those witches,warlocks and night riders that might be lurking on the streets, the alleys,in the corner, on top of houses, you name it they’d be there.
This is only one aspect, then there are others who may think why am I out there in the evening, I know it’s none of their business, but they are nosy, cannot use their time wisely, so back biting is what they do.
Yes if I can rid fear off my vocabulary, I’d be better off.
My life , I cannot complain couldn’t be better with or without fear, I’m happy, I’m not interested to change anything.
I checked the dictionary,to find out what is their definition of “Normal”, well surprise,surprise,it says physically or mentally sound. What it means to me,I do not think I’m quite sure.A good thing or a bad thing,depends on who the judge is.
Let me think about physically sound first. It is not easy to know about physical fitness. I maybe fit today,tomorrow I’d find out just the opposite. I heard about a young man,sound bodily, suddenly collapses and lands in the ‘ICU’. So one cannot decide by looking at a person,he/she is sound physically. There have been cases when patients have been sent home with a clean bill of health. Moments later the person is back on the stretcher wheeled hastily to ‘OR’,this is about physical health.
Next is mental health,it is much more complex than the one I just wrote about. We hear about serial killers,outwardly the neighbors see nothing wrong,he is as normal as anyone else. Delve further you find ,he/she is responsible for countless murders.How can it be, he was photographed with the Reagans. There is something wrong with this news.No there isn’t, we overlooked it.
My conclusion is, the word,’Normal’ is not easy to write about. So I leave it to the readers to decide,if they can distinguish between normal and abnormal.I certainly cannot.
