In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “All or Nothing?.” “Perhaps when we find ourselves wanting everything, it is because we are dangerously close to wanting nothing.” — Sylvia Plath


Which do you find more dangerous: wanting nothing, or wanting everything?

I find neither wanting nothing or wanting everything is dangerous, as, I spent the past five days engrossed in a book, and enjoying life.

I have realized, I have an expiration date, so rushing through life in anticipation of the expiration date is not enjoyable or fulfilling for me.

Wanting everything is not an option, however, not wanting everything is a consideration.

Last week, I attempted to write a response for this prompt and I could not concentrate because my wish to read was stronger than to write.

Now I could have attempted to read a little and write some, however, the decision to focus on one desire, made for a more enjoyable read.

In my response to the prompt, it is not dangerous wanting nothing or wanting everything, it just a simple decision.

We all have an expiration day, we just do not know exactly the date, so I subscribed to the “Peaceful easy feeling” belief,from the Rock Band “The Eagles”.

  1. True

  2. Taking things easy and doing things that you love brings more happiness and fulfillment than accomplishing everything for a short period of time. You will only get tired from rushing things and end up having not finish at all.
