Weekly Photo Challenge: Another Opportunity for Growth

I'm a sardonic blogger, snapper, scribbler and rhymer; a virtual space invader who indulges in cheerful negativism, morbid self-deprecation and bleak humour.

  1. I like subversive, Mara. It feels real and not a refined, pretty version of reality. When I hear the idea that every negative experience is an opportunity for growth, I’d rather be kicked out of the school of life like in the video. I prefer the lessons taught by positive experiences. They bring joy to life. 🙂


    1. Thank you for your kind words, as always! I couldn’t agree with you more. I prefer the unrefined and authentic whenever I have a choice 🙂 I hate cliches, no matter how true they might be. And I so much love your idea of learning your positive experiences! Much better than negative ones.
