Chapters

Life, like the greatest book you have ever read, has chapters. There is always going to be a beginning, a middle and an end. You start reading a book, and you cannot chose how the beginning starts. The same with life. We are born, and we cannot chose the parents we are given, or the way our life starts out. In a book, the beginning is laid out before you. You are introduced to the characters and the backdrop of the book. Following the beginning, there will always be the middle. The middle chapters of life are somewhat shaped by yourself. You can create your own story, your own backdrop and your memories. As you continue reading a book, you start to create your own story in your head, guessing what will happen, as you read on. Similar to life, it may not turn out the way you have expected, but at least you have given some input. The end chapters, in both cases, revolve around the middle chapters and what went on in the story or your life. Everything comes to an end. A great book and life will all end at some time. No matter how great it is, we have to come to the realization that at some point, it will be over.

After we start to get used to the way life goes, we can then build memories. Some memories will be positive, some negative. There will come a day where you will be flooded with memories of your past. This happened to me recently. I don't know why but there was a day which seemed like everyone and everything from my past came rushing into my life like raging waters. I sat there trying to take it all in.
