Seven words to live by

Khalil Gibran once said that people will never understand one another unless language is reduced to seven words. What would your seven words be?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us SEVEN.


I’ve never done a daily prompt but I guess it’s a good place to start tearing down my writer’s block. So here goes nothing.

First off, I am wondering in what sense to take this. Should I pick seven words that have meaning me? Or maybe a line that is important to me. In that case, I could go with the mantra of my blog and choose something like: Life is what you make of it. But if I chose seven words that would encompass that same line I would choose discover, creativity, love, forgiveness, music, dream and family.


Discover because there is so much in the world to see, and you need to find it to discover yourself.

Creativity because everyone needs an outlet whether to express them self, whether it be through drawing or stand up comedy.

Love because there is not enough of it in this world, and there never can be.

Forgiveness because every one makes mistakes and no is perfect, and holding grudges only hurts.

Music because it encompasses every single person in this world based on experience, mood, style, culture, memories, you name it and music can encompass it.

Dream because they having goals, ideas, thoughts, etc will push you to complete them and satisfy an inner being.

Family because generically you choose your friends not your family (even though I’ve learned you choose your family because but more importantly because they are the people that shaped you, no matter the experiences you’ve had.


These are the elements that I am trying to incorporate into my life every day. These are the things that I am trying to build my life around and convey to the world as aspects of my life. So do take with it what you want.
