“November 11: January 9 Prompt
You’re locked in a room with your greatest fear. Describe what’s in the room.
One thing comes to mind when I see this prompt. Thinking about it already gives me chills down my spine. What is it, perhaps?
I’m locked in a room with my future self. The future self that never got up. The future self that decided to quit and give up on life. The future self that chose to constantly struggle and didn’t make the choice to improve. I imagine this future self to be self-loathing, clawing at the wall letting all her insecurities destroy her from the inside out. Oh, and another thing…this future self is young. She decided to quit living life.
The room has no windows but a mere pendant light swaying from above the ceiling that’s almost indistinguishable. And here I am, just standing right in front of her.
“A life lived in fear… is a life half-lived.”
― Baz Luhrmann, Strictly Ballroom
So to you who is reading this, fight for it. Fight for the life you deserve and stay hungry to live. The more you fear, the less time you have in allowing yourself to embrace the beauty of life that the universe is giving to you.
