Today's post is in conjunction with the Blog-A-Licious Blog Tour a fantastic blog hop that brings together bloggers of all genres, backgrounds and locations. In today's hop, the blog featured before Peace from Pieces is the eloquent Sulekha. The blog featured after Peace from Pieces is the unique and quirky Shaeeza. Do stop by and say hello plus some of us are having giveaways and contests. Enjoy!
I read the abridged version of this book as a little girl and it was proof that good things will happen to you, no matter what. But I missed some vital points. As a child we all see the world differently. Be it from the protected versions we receive or the ignorance we are taught to believe in, nothing is what it seems.
Then as we grow up and venture into the world - our eyes, heart and mind are first opened and then hurt in some ways. Our vision becomes distorted. Our hearts scarred and our minds experienced. The world is still not what it seems.
Some of us search, some of us give up and some of us move on. We hope and we love because we know life has a way of handing us what we expect when we least expect it. We learn humility, gratitude and we learn love. Sometimes not necessarily in that sequence.
Yes, this is what one book taught me. Different versions, different editions and always a different lesson to offer another dose of inspiration - Great Expectation by Charles Dickens.
The ever questioning, ever burdened and ever learning Pip is proof that we are not perfect. And irrelevant of our imperfections, life will only disappoint you as much as you let it.
