Daily Prompt : Control

In response to daily post’s one-word prompt : Control

The Cruel Siblings

Mr. and Miss Murdstone are a strange pedigree,

They sure know how to make a little kid unfree.

David the little kid  they want to control,

Which they think is their life’s main goal.

Between the brother and  sister there is a pact,

They must not let the mother speak or react.

This is  Charles Dickens’ make-believe story,

His portrayal of the Murdstones is so  gory!

DP Daily Prompt: Qeu Sera Sera

pad2014-s.png (308×60)

Do you believe in fate or do you believe you can control your own destiny.

I am not sure what I believe in, in fate or I can control my own destiny. The song “Que Sera Sera “, is a favorite song of mine. I heard it a long time ago.I didn’t really think about the lyrics,then or even now.

Today’s prompt makes me think  do I believe in fate or do I believe in controlling my own destiny. I believe in both.

My fate exposed me to various things I could do with my life, study or stop studying. I controlled my destiny by choosing the former. I kept going until I felt my brothers have contributed towards my studies long enough,I should see if I can get some help in way of  a scholarship to study further. Fate helped me to get what I wanted and I controlled my destiny by making sure I was successful each time.

I felt I had studied enough it was time for me to look for a job. I got the first one I applied for,eleven months later I made up my mind to leave the job and look for another.My second job proved too taxing for my health and well-being , I quit that one for good. 

I always knew I was qualified enough to get a teaching job in the city,I was not disappointed.

Marriage changed the picture, I relied on fate solely,wherever my husband found work I’d have to go there,which is what I did. There was no room for controlling my destiny. So like Doris Day I thought “whatever will be, will be.”

Yes I have children,they don’t ask me, “will I be handsome will I be rich?” If they did I’d  only say whatever will be,will be.”You will be what you want to be.

Once again I have decided to control my destiny by registering for on-line courses, it was something I had very little knowledge of, here I am once again controlling my destiny by continuing with the courses.

DP Daily Prompt: Tables Turned Posted by Ranu

Tables turned is best for me when I am in control.I like being in front of the camera,rather than behind. Staying behind brings a lot of doubt in my mind.I do not feel comfortable. My worse fear is being written about.I love writing a story,a biography or a translation.It gives me the opportunity to express myself.

I am not a person who can do much, when I am written about. I dislike it. Sometimes I find people are cruel. I am more relaxed and happy when I get to write,it can be anything.

There are two kinds of criticism,one destroys a person’s confidence.The other is the one that encourages. Blogging has given me the chance to read comments of people who visit my blog.They are exceptional,they help me by their awesome comments. As yet I did not feel intimidated by any of the bloggers who visit. This is something very positive for me. They let me be in control,which is the best spot for me. I am very thankful to all those visitors on my blog.who have helped this far.
