No matter how much you think you have life figured out, there are always unanswered questions. While browsing Pixabay, I saw a photo that made me revisit old thoughts and feelings. Can you relate to the life of a teddy bear?
I knew what death was even as a child. It would not be until I was a teenager that I understood what death was when my mom died. One by one, people around me are dying and my turn will come one day.
As the years passed by, are there fewer people who care for me? but also the feeling that I have fewer friends today.
If there is one thing about my big dreams, it’s that it keeps changing. My teenager dreams are different from my childhood dreams. The dreams I have today, will it change again? Where do I go from here? Who am I taking with me on my journey? Will I find myself alone once I reach my destination?
Where I am going, there is peace and tranquility. It is a place where dreams are a reality. But what if I never find my way, and what if upon arriving, it is not what I thought it would be? What if there is nothing after all?
The Life of a Teddy Bear
I wrote this from a first person perspective using a teddy bear. My intention is to make you think of the future. Life is mysterious hence there will always be unanswered questions. You could cringe at the unknown but it doesn’t have to be like that.
You have time.
Even the richest people in the world could never buy time and you have a lot of it. If time is priceless, then so are you. How do you intend to use the most valuable commodity you have? What should the teddy bear do?
