Mind Bites

Hello all you lovely readers!

I would like to begin by apologizing for not updating this past month, honestly speaking, I wasn’t inspired by much. Well the past is the past and now I have decided to start a series called Mind Bites. These will be one-liners or short paragraphs with deep/ quirky meanings and I will post one each week! I hope you all enjoy this!                                                                    ~ Angie

Who said I was lost? I’m just following the map in my heart.

Sharp As A Knife

He handed me the knife firmly, I could feel the difference between the warmth of his skin and the cool touch of the metal. I wasn’t sure if I was afraid or not but the situation was definitely intimidating.

He silently nodded and I walked forward, the knife clutched tightly in my right hand, ready to strike. I headed towards today’s task.

My weapon was sharp enough to do the job quickly but my hands were shaking in fear, If I made a mistake it would all be over.

Taking in a deep breath I took one last step to the counter and quickly began chopping the vegetables, this was my test for becoming a permanent chef at a five-star restaurant and I had to do my best.

Well there you go! Another surprise ending! I hope it was as good as the previous one. Sorry for not posting for so long.

This was based on a quote my father shared with me “If someone hands you a knife, it’s your decision whether you use it to chop vegetables or kill someone”

Simple Pleasures

Today while travelling in the local public transport I saw something that made my day.

A boy who looked around five years old was standing on the side of the street with his mother, carelessly munching on a cracker with the most precious smile on his face.

This sounds pretty normal but the way he beamed was so perfect that I couldn’t help smile as well. This stranger managed to light up my face by doing nothing at all except for enjoying the luxury of a crispy biscuit.

This moment will forever be special to me because amidst the rush of enormous vehicles there’s a little boy who is enjoying the simple pleasures of life to the fullest.

To Jump, To Fall

Standing on the edge the sounds are almost inaudible, the hundreds of people seem miles away. All I can hear is the sound of my heart, pumping blood to every part.

The deep abyss lies before me, tempting me to fall in. Into the bone-chilling cool that hurts until you get used to it. I’m so close, so close to loosing myself into a force powerful enough to kill me.

Something in me is afraid but nearly 99% is willing to take the risk and so I do.

Following a gunshot I let myself fall in, headfirst, and there’s a loud sound that replays in my mind until I begin to move, battling the force. Not seeing. Not thinking.

I only stop when I’ve reached a wall. I made it I won the swimming championship!
