The Choice

Posted in Memes, Striking Sentences by Lex on January 10, 2010

Don’t you just love when you’re reading along in your top-’o-the-stack book and a sentence jumps out at you – a sentence that makes you say “Aha!” or “Yes!” or “Why didn’t I think of that before?”  Or you stumble across a sentence  so perfectly written it resounds in your heart strings for days?

Each Saturday we’ll be celebrating those Striking Sentences, the ones that pierce the soul with their wisdom or humor or craft. If you’d like to share a Strinking Sentence (or sentences) from your current read, head over to Bookstack and post the link to your answers on the comment box.

The Choice by Nicholas Sparks

Lately, happiness seemed as distant and unreachable to him as space travel. He didn’t always felt this way. There had been a long period of time during which he remembered being very happy, Bu things change. People change. Change was one of the inevitable laws of nature, exacting its toll on people’s lives. Mistakes are made, regrets form, and all that was left were repercussions that made something as simple as rising from the bed seem almost laborious.

Happiness, as the paragraph says, is important and when we lose it, we lose our ways too. Actually, it’s not only the happiness but the source of it that puts us down – the person, the memories, the things that make us happy. These change, disappears, fades or worst leaves.

When this happens, we need to find our happiness back. Forgive and start anew. If this doesn’t work, then move on. God always has ways to replace what we lost. Remember, every sadness follows something good.

Have you ever been sad to the extent that you feel dead? I haven’t and I hope you too.

    Glad you had a good week! I love to be ahead with my posts, but sadly, it doesn’t happen very often.

    Oh my, these sentences really strike me too. I had a lot of sad changes in my life last year, and though I’ve been working hard to rise above the sadness, it’s not always easy to feel happy again :)

    Thanks for sharing your Striking Sentences.

      Standing up after falling hard is difficult. I’m happy that you’re okay now!
