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. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚)
      But I still very much liked reading your own ponderings, Benjamin, as always. And I like that you ask others to ponder the same. πŸ˜ŠπŸ™

    I would love to be remembered as 0, came as 0 go as 0. A perfect weightless circle.

  3. Loving. Loyal. Positive.

    Love this! I hope I’m remembered as a lover, a fighter and a survivor.
