Finding Her Voice; Finding happiness.


I just finished reading Sword of DarknessKinley MacGregor’s Sword of Darkness and having abstained from novel reading for a long time, it whetted my appetite more than I imagined it could. Often times, I read and forget all about the book, the contents and title and some times, even the author. It does not mean that I do not like the book or that it made no impact, but I am that forgetful.

However, there are some books that I cannot forget the titles, if I do, then I am bound to remember the author or the contents. This one has squeezed itself into that group. It is primarily a Merlin kind of fiction which I do not believe in. But I learnt something wonderful from reading that book.

I know it would be easier said/written than done, but I believe it is possible, or is it not? Is it not possible for good to tame evil? To transform evil with good? To alter negative with positive? I am a chronic romantic at heart and believe it is possible.

You see, this ‘mouse’, plain peasant but spirited girl of no obvious pedigree named Seren was able to transform this dark, powerful demon of a man called Kerrigan, not with any magic but just by being nice, humane and courageous. Life is more complicated than that I know, but it is worth trying I think.

It begins with seeing the good in others first and concentrating on that good side instead of focusing on the bad. Even if there is only one element of good in the person as against the millions of bad within, focus on that one.

I, like a typical human, especially a female-human, tend to see the bad, focus on it and blow it out of proportion. My motto in life used to be ‘GABBAGE IN GABBAGE OUT(GIGO). *Grins* What you put in is what you get. If you are nice to me, I will be nice to you, if you are mean, then expect that in good dose too, that is the type of Christianity I used to practice.

Now, it is hard for me to be patient and kind to you when all you do is be mean to me. But the important thing is that I have realized that I ought to be nice for the sake of being nice and not because the person was nice to me. People pass through a lot of things in life, and often times, they transfer the aggression to an outsider. Who would blame them?

The pains, agonies, trauma, challenges, disappointments and sorrow that people live with everyday are enough to make them mean. But I do not remember that when dealing with them. I do not remember that they are humans and therefore liable to make mistakes. I expect them to be good at all times, as if I am better.

MacGregor has taught me to look for the good in others, concentrate on it and deal with them based on that, she taught me to be more tolerant of others in order to bring out the best in them. I believe this can be achieved, how difficult it is, I am on the verge of finding out…

    Hey! I definitely agree with pretty much everything you’re saying…You’re honestly so relatable! I love the format of you’re entire blog and I really wish I could replicate it! A few suggestions I have are to maybe increase the text size, and that picture in the beginning, though pretty, is enormous! Other than that, your use of media is fantastic!

    You’re awesome!

    It’s always nice when we can take something out of a book we read. I agree it’s a good thing to take the higher road though not always easy.
