Real horror

We enjoy horror because it is not real. The fake blood and special effects allow us to experience the intensity without anyone actually getting hurt. However, life can be more frightening than anything in the movies.

There are diseases that cause all manner of misery. Some conditions result in the loss of body parts. And you will most likely live through the ordeal.

When it comes to monsters, humanity has them in abundance. A beast does not delight in murder. However, a human being can rejoice in utter wickedness.

Pain comes in many forms. Whether by accident or intent, serious damage can be inflicted. And life becomes a living hell.

Appreciate what you have while you still have it. No one knows when their luck will run out. That which was given can so easily be taken.

To live in fear is among the most terrible of fates. We all know about what could happen, but it is pointless to dwell on it. Enjoy the unreal, and then get out and live before it is too late.

Dreaming awake

When a dream comes true, it does not look the same. Reality is not so flamboyant, but has a gravity fantasy cannot match. Do you ever wonder what will be there when you wake up?

The goal can be met without a fanfare. The satisfaction of achievement is its own reward. That is what it means to do something real.

Do not expect others to understand. They will not know why you put spent so much time, and worked so hard. It is for you to enjoy the fruits of your labors.

Those who wish to take, cannot appreciate what it took to make. They did not put in the effort, so they should not reap the benefits. Rather, they should be left to the substance of their contribution.

Though the world remains the same, something has changed. You have made better than what was. The day is brighter, and the steps lighter.

Dreams are the imaginings of the heart. This world is a canvas and the mediums varied. The full beauty will not be revealed until the work is done.

Unpleasant surprises

Life is full of unpleasant surprises. These actions are beyond our control. Still, the outcome is largely determined by our reaction.

When bad things happen, you could complain. This will do nothing to solve the matter, and causes unwanted frustration. Telling others will only result in them nodding their heads and tuning you out.

Instead, take an honest look at the situation. Determine if it can be salvaged or you should start over. When the end has been reached, begin anew.

Weigh the advantages and disadvantages before taking action. Often, it is not about what is right or wrong, but what will produce the best results. If your heart is flawed, the mind will rationalize.

Fear will be your worst adversary. Doing new things is a scary proposition. It is easier to go with what you know.

The world changes, though we wish it would not. That is why adaptation is so important. Either the current drags us under, or we learn to ride the waves.

Burning light

Caring is important, being nice is not. Fire warms, but it also burns. And it is a well-known fact evil cannot stand the heat.

People must reap what they have sown. If the light is blinding, they deserve to stumble. Wickedness cowers when good rears its head.

Meanness should never be arbitrary. For then, it is no longer deserved. It has devolved into taking one's frustrations out on anyone in sight.

There are monsters who will devour anyone foolish enough to show them kindness. Offer them your hand only to strike them down. They endanger all you hold dear.

Yet, they are helpless before the grinning good. Those who delight in bringing them low. The shadows are no refuge from the burning light.

Evil is proud, so it must fall. Because it is smug, its sorrow will be great. It does not deserve the treatment of a friend, but rather the fate of an enemy.
