Welcome back to another week of creativity!
“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women are players. They have their entries and exits” famously said, Shakespeare.
Shakespeare got it all wrong. Life is what we choose, and everything else is just existence.
Well, I just noticed that Shakespeare has not used the word “life” anywhere. The Master knew what he was talking about.
All you need to do is just think about how the above lines gel with or rub against your thought process. Then, start writing and there you are with your piece.
Or did we?
We come, as in, are born but have no choice in where and when.
We live a life which, for the early part, is pretty much pre-decided for us. Then there comes a time when we are free to make a choice about which direction our lives will/can take.
But this is not an open choice even then. We still are dependent upon our circumstances, economic and social.
As we mature, we adapt to the life we are living and the roles thrust on us. Some of these we take willingly and some are again a product of situation and circumstances.
I guess all this is leading to the conclusion that Brad was right after all. We play the roles which we find ourselves in, during our stay in this world. Like actors, we perform and we exit when the curtain closes.
The choice lies in how we perform our roles. We can always choose our path, and our choices define the sort of human we are!
I decide what I’ll be
I decide how I will behave
I am responsible for my choices
