    Life is like a blackboard

    Life, as we know, is much like a blackboard. The present moments that we live are like white words and sometimes even colorful, breathing alive on that black canvas. The past remains half-hidden in the recesses of our mind much like the blurred words, sentences and diagrams that we erase using a duster. But like memories, whether good or bad, it remains alive, even if not so clearly visible. The powdered residue of chalk that accumulates at the curved base of blackboard, either by writing or by dusting off the blackboard, are like regrets and failures that lie there dormant yet adamant, occasionally making us sad and demoralised. The past may be gone and its remains may still be visible on the blackboard of our life but we are the ones writing our present to create a better future. Often by making our present better, figuratively by writing with a chalk on the blackboard, a day will come when there would be so many good memories that the existence of bad memories won't trouble us.

    Life, as a blackboard, gives us innumerable chances to write our own story. Only we have a limited stock of chalk. So we must try our best to make the best use of it and keep striving to make our blackboard of a life look incomplete until it loses its color and it is painted again to begin everything anew.

    This is my TOW entry.

    A good comparison of life with the blackboard. The points covered by the writer is very much associated with everyone's life and can be easily related. The present moments that we live are like white words breathing alive on that black canvas. The past remains half-hidden in the recesses of our mind much like the blurred words erased using a duster. The powdered residue of chalk that accumulates at the curved base of the blackboard is like regrets and failures occasionally making us sad and demoralized. The past may be gone and its remains may still be visible on the blackboard even if not so clearly visible. Life, like a blackboard, gives us innumerable chances with a limited stock of chalk and thus needs to make the best use of it and write a beautiful story before the stock of chalk gets over called Life.

    When we go through the above article, we will understand that life is open but with a limited stock of chalk i.e. our counted days on this earth. The more we understand the fact, the better we will be able to make it and come up with a good story on the black canvas. Very good entry for the moth end TOW contest.

    Very nice. Life itself is compared with a blackboard. True. Your life is like a blackboard to you. You can write what you want on that. The chalk is also given to you in the form of opportunities. How to use those opportunities is your prerogative.
    Many people say it is destiny and nothing is there in our hands. But as a person, we should try to our best to progress. Instead of that if we leave it to God somebody else will use the chalk we have to write on their blackboard progress much faster than us. This point should we remember and compete with others and get the best results.

    A good one that compares our lives with a blackboard. When a child is born, the canvas is clean just like a brand new blackboard. The present is painted on the canvas by erasing the past and the past can stay there faintly if not erased properly. That's our life consisting of many memories and pictures. While the writings on the blackboard when erased cannot be reproduced again if we can make our memory like that we can remain peaceful. There will be no bad memories and only the ones to make us progress in life. We need to move forward and that's why always need to write new texts and drawings on the blackboard of life.
