What Is Life?


Mondays are great for reflection. If you had a chance to know your life’s fate would you take it? If we all knew our destinies, would we both to work hard, to dream, to aspire to become it or would we just let fate have its way? We live in a blinded mystery, and no one really knows today, and I am not sure we have the guts to face it. What if we had that road map, would we have the courage to follow it to the letter would it make life any more comfortable? I am at that point whereby I don’t know what exactly I am doing and why. Life is a mystery no one knows their tomorrow, but then what if we all knew, would suicide be a normal thing or will we find the ultimate happiness.



Imagine this, if your life was all laid out to you would you rather have the mysterious darkness or are your eyes strong enough to handle the full lights? If you were certain of your destiny and you knew no matter how hard you worked or if you did not lift a finger that is all you would ever be will there be any reason to put any effort in life? Would the situation affect the decisions you make?  Do you think it will motivate you to work towards it or it will be the very reason you give up? I’m craving to know if there will be anyone with the courage to face life after that.



Do you freely live on #YOLO or do you consider that your decisions and actually plan for your future? I know nothing is permanent and nothing is certain, maybe aliens are real, and we are just puppets playing in the game of knights. Who is in charge? Why are we even here? I believe it reaches a point whereby one needs answers. When we are born is life all figured out but we are not given that road map and we are made to stumble upon all the blocks then slip into our destiny.



Attention fuels power. Once we don’t pay attention to something, it loses its ability to influence our lives. But assumption brews ignorance. I’ve been doing a lot of soul searching lately, and I have so many questions regarding life, what makes some people more powerful than other – well apart from having loads of cash. The question as to who actually controls the economy, why and how? What makes the US dollar powerful and the Zimbabwean Dollar not so powerful? What makes some people more authoritative than others?  Why can’t we just live fearlessly without doubts of tomorrow? How did we get here? Is destiny at trap?


I don’t know about you, but yes, I’d like to know what my future holds.

    Great piece Anita. I think my eyes are strong enough for the full lights.
    But sometimes it feels nice to slip into the unknown.

    Good thing no one really knows tomorrow. Even science is still ages behind knowing that.

    If people knew what the rest of their lives looked like, it would all be chaos. Chaos everywhere!

      I feel like we at least have the right to know..or have a choice…

  6. You got me on ” I don’t know exactly what I’m doing…” That’s a statement t that pops in my head all the time. And you have answered it perfectly. We need to be fearless.

    Thanks for this. Beautiful piece.

    The mystery of destiny is what makes life interesting. Imagine if we knew the outcome to every decision we make? We most likely wouldn’t make some of the decisions that may not be as useful at that moment but add some spice to life in the long run… Though truth, it wouldn’t hurt to have a glimpse of my future ?
