For today's blogpost, I have chosen this word Name.
It sounds very simple, Names are quite common. Something universal that we all share. That's it. What's there to talk about it you may ask? Well everyone and everything has a name, and every name has some ambitions and expectations attached to it.
If you are named after an ancestor or a parent, you are expected to follow in their footsteps, behave like them and achieve the same goals that they did. If you are named after a certain celebrity or book character you are expected to show traits peculiar to them.
Every name, has a story behind it. people may know your name, but they definitely don't know the STORY.
I came across this quote a while back," Sometimes it seems that most of us are wrongly named or maybe we shape our lives to make the names wrong." Names are an extension of ourselves, our identities are associated with them. A name is the one of the only thing that stays long after a person dies the other being his memories.What kind of a name remains, that depends on the kind of life that was lived. A good name always manages to keep it's lustre even in the dark, it never fades away.
As for me, I don't want to be famous but when I die, I want people to remember me by my name and say that 'She was a good soul.' That's not too hard to ask for or is it?
leaving you with a thought provoking proverb :
