Imagine yourself downloading something, watching the percentage indicator slowly moving.

Life is all about that, watching that indicator moving forward, advancing slowly.

If the indicator stops moving, being stuck in one place for so long, we begin to think that something is wrong.

As long as the indicator keeps moving, we are alright because we know things are progressing.

But if it freezes, not moving at all, that’s the moment we are put in a loop, throwing ourselves of balance.

As long as the indicator moves forward, explanations we do not expect. When it freezes, the not knowing part, really messes up our thought process, we panick, searching for answers we don’t know the questions to.

  1. Thank you for liking “Everlasting.” I have not thought about life this way before, but I like this interesting perspective. I know my indicator has gotten stuck more than once in my life! 😀 Thank goodness life also comes with some “System Restore” options (good family, friends, faith in a higher power, and so on).

      1. You are welcome. 🙂 It would be great to have a way to erase our big mistakes and the pain that usually results from them. However, I would not want to forget the good experiences that I have had in my life.

      2. Yes, you are right. While suffering through hardship can be painful, it is possible to gain something positive from a negative experience – wisdom, strength, or a new purpose in life.

        On a lighter note, I found myself thinking that the master reset sounded like something from a fantasy or even a horror story and using it would come with a high price. 😀
