Hope you enjoy. This is for AliceSpeak's Word/Phrase of the day.

The phrase is 'thrive'.


To thrive with someone is one of the best feelings in the world, but to thrive without someone is like holding on to a meager thread of lies that you tell yourself everyday to stay awake, to stay alive. Better yet why would you stay awake when your love or that other someone is in your reach when you close your dainty little eyes?

Hasn't life always been unfair to you? You think, of course it has but hasn't stopped be from living. So, you are telling me that you could leave with yourself, having your best friends split up probably never to see each other again. You were locked in Azkaban for something you did not do. I was the secret keeper or everyone thought that anyway, instead it was….. Of course it was your dear friend Peter Pettigrew.

Harry Potter, your grandson did not know you were his godfather until you broke out. Your closet friends died, disappeared or went to the dark side. Still that feeling to survive and thrive in this despair made you almost mad. Why did Merlin do this to you, how could anyone be so cruel. Of course, you could be cruel, but we won't say anything.

Now rest your eyes and close your mind, this is an illusion that will not only harm you but make you see the truth of this sad matter. How else would you be able to thrive, to survive?

"We do not live to think, but, on the contrary, we think in order that we may succeed in surviving."


The qoute here at the bottom was said by Jose Ortega y Gasset, a Spanish philosopher and humanist.

"We do not live to think, but, on the contrary, we think in order that we may succeed in surviving."

Hope you all liked it.
