Daily Writing Prompt Challenge 03-25-2015
I’d like to propose a daily writing prompt challenge. The original post is here . The prompts come from a book titled More Daily Wisdom: 365 Buddhist Inspirations . It consists of daily quotes from various Buddhist writings intended to inspire, to get the reader to think or feel. I wish to express this reaction in writing and hope to motivate others to do so also.
If you’d like to participate, please tag your posts 365DailyPrompt
The prompt for today, March 25, is:
Your life is restricted. Yet, you can find freedom within restriction .
The most important freedom is choosing how to respond to those restrictions. I can accept or reject the restrictions in my life. Some restrictions are there for a purpose—speed limits—and are broken only with consequences. I have to accept them, at least up to a certain point. Some restrictions are in place because of circumstances—my height, for example—that I can’t control. I have to accept that. I have to pick my battles.
But I don’t have to accept unjust restrictions. I have to arm myself before engagements, weigh the costs before going in.
Or so I tell myself.
