Scribbles of life

             images              Education is not only in schools, ignorance is not about reading and writing.  In fact, the world is the only school that can make good or bad persons. It is all about how people receive their education in this big school that called ” the world”.
Any living creature is a learner in this school. However; every person has his own pencil with which he/she writes down every experience, lesson, and dream. This pencil carries the identity of its user and the paper carries his/her life, wile the eraser carres the burden of mistakes.
                          “But it’s like any other pencil I’ve  ever seen!”
“That depends on how you look at things…” Paulo Coelho introduced this idea long time ago. Coelho wrote “the story of the pencil” by which he gives new meanings for life.
The pencil can be seen as if it is just a piece of wood with graphite in the inside and can be seen as the dream achievers.
This pencil can be broken but it can not lose its value. Being broken will never underestimate its real value.It is like anyone in this world (this school) that can pass through difficult experiences  and can make mistakes, but it can not lose its value whatever happens.This pencil can write poems and also can write nonsense. It is all about how it is guided.
In the world, every person has  his own identity and value that can never be lost.
May be one can be broken but one can not be nothing.The real value of the pencil is in the inside; its values lay in the graphite. Typically like anyone whose value is in his identity not in his actions, achievements and success.  Being created and exited in this school means that you have a priceless value. This value that exists before even your actions, achievements, and success exist.  Everyone is totally unique person that can never be evaluated by his/her appearance.In the world, that represents the biggest school, the pencil is a crucial element in learning.
                         Simply because pencil also writes down his owner’s life story. So be careful how your life is going. It is not that easy to erase your mistakes with an eraser and keep on moving and writing. Actually, it takes time and effort to erase a mistake from your paper ( your life). The beat thing about a pencil is that whatever it writes, it can be erased. The mistakes in our lives are not the end of our life, it is a beginning of new lesson. Here comes one’s responsibility to handle his/her mistakes; One can choose to keep on moving and learning and the other can choose to threw away the paper and the pencil.
This world depends on decisions and how decision makers were once children.
To become a decision maker means to become flexible with your mistakes and past.

                                 The eraser may seem the most forgotten tool in a student’s pencil case, although it is the thing that is used the most. The eraser erases typos, and mistakes. And Just like how the eraser comes attached to the end of a pencil, it is also attached to human’s brain. What human never makes mistakes? No one, we all do, we all fall in the intriguing manipulative paths of the devil, but an eraser teaches us that there is always a way back, that there is always a chance for redemption. The eraser is that U-turn that appears in the road to tell you that you can go back and start from the beginning, that you have another chance and take care not to waste it. Mistakes and Redemption are like 2 beacons; each alluring a specific side in our souls. Sometimes, we go in this way and sometimes we go in that, but it’s not bad nor is it wrong. Making mistakes is what makes us humans and seeking redemption and forgiveness is what makes us alive. They both continue each other, just like a pencil and an eraser; if there wasn’t pencil writing and making mistakes, the eraser would be useless, and if there wasn’t an eraser, the pencil would then become afraid to write anything, which makes it also useless. If a certain person knew that he/she can’t erase their mistakes, they would never try anything which will make them living dead, and if God didn’t give the human a way back, he would have created a flawless humanity. It is totally approved and accepted for us to make mistakes and try to use our erasers to wipe them off; it is actually recommended to go on with life and don’t trap ourselves in the past and never let it define the present and the future. On the other hand, an eraser doesn’t teach us only that, but it also teaches us that whenever it is used, it gets dirtier and smaller. Our mistakes are just like that, they define us, and we should know that we have a few shots in erasing them before our erasers end. So, just as much as we need to use the flexible erasers to wipe off our mistakes, we should bear in mind that it won’t last forever and that we should take care and know that every mistake counts, because it doesn’t just hold us back but it also takes much of our effort and lives to forget and erase.

On Balance, a pencil is just like a human being, it writes down his  story; his life, his passions, achievements, success and mistakes. And an eraser is just like the human passion and instinct that seeks forgiveness and erasing the mistakes he has ever made. So, be careful and picky when you write your story , make mistakes, but erase wisely and learn from them, and remember that you only have few papers to fill out so write with wisely and lively. May everyone’s papers always be  colorful and full with life.

One thought on “Scribbles of life

  1. I think you shouldn’t stop writing those creative/motivational posts even after the course ends. I’ll keep on reading them myself. 🙂
    I can sense the heavy influence of Paulo Coelho in most of your writings.
