Don’t file me under: disability, deserter, despair
File me under: battled, loyal, hopeful
Sometimes it’s important to think about how we want to be remembered, because it helps us go toward something higher. Try to divide negativity into something positive, because, after all, it takes two negatives to make a positive (according to mathematics). I want a plus sign above my head in the end. How would you want to be filed away in an abstract sense?
Nice idea, love this. “Battled.” I like that, especially alongside loyal and hopeful.
I guess, off the top, I’d say I’d like to be filed as: Loving, honest, conscientious, courageous.
Very nice exercise! Thanks for that. :))
And as an afterthought, I’d also like to be filed (one day, in the far, far future) as someone who didn’t impossibly categorize themselves as a knee-jerk reaction to blogging-community-triggered questions. ;)) (One can dream. 😉😂)
But I still very much liked reading your own ponderings, Benjamin, as always. And I like that you ask others to ponder the same. 😊🙏
Yes, in the far, far future. I can agree with this, and let it be so. I like your list. Courageous. That’s so important. Life sometimes makes it hard to life courageously, but it’s something that really can motivate and inspire.
And sometimes it’s very invisible – sometimes courage is doing something that to others, in the moment, seems weak.
That’s a great way of putting it. You always have me thinking beyond the boundaries. 🙂
And you’re always so kind! ❤︎
Kind, maybe so. But it’s true also!
Well, thank you 😊very very much.
I would love to be remembered as 0, came as 0 go as 0. A perfect weightless circle.
That’s a very interesting notion. I wouldn’t have thought of it, but I like it a lot.
I made something out of this and is scheduled out tomorrow. 😊
Nice. Look forward to reading it!
Loving. Loyal. Positive.
Considered it filed in the future.
Love this! I hope I’m remembered as a lover, a fighter and a survivor.
Thanks. And I think you will be. Thanks for sharing your list 🙂
You’re very welcome!
Thanks so much!
