Look at the object to your left. Can you use it to describe your outlook on life?

To my left is my son's guitar.

• It reminds me of what's important in life. The beautiful and enjoyable things -- art, music, etc. -- ultimately bring more happiness than careers and so on.

• It has 6 strings. That's not too many, but not too few, either.
This makes me think -- We shouldn't try to control TOO many things in our lives. If we try to micromanage every single little thing, that would be like trying to play a guitar with 1000 strings; it would just be overwhelming, and it would sound like crap.
But, we also need to find ENOUGH things to make our lives meaningful. If a guitar only had 1 string, it would be terribly boring and unfulfilling to play, and it wouldn't make beautiful music. Similarly, if we don't find our "niche" in enough areas of life, we won't feel fulfilled personally.

• It's electric, but it can be acoustic, too.
I like tech stuff, but I also like to "unplug" and enjoy life's simple pleasures from time to time.

• The strings only make music when they're under tension.
This might be my favorite analogy. I am NOT a "peace and quiet" type of person. I absolutely thrive under conditions of relative chaos, stress, and "crisis management".

Stupid but fun exercise. What's the object to your left? Can you use it to make an analogy about life?

      he was a tough mf'er -- one of the 29 original Navajo 4th Division Marines who developed the "code talker" language. He even *liked* the K-rations from the war (the same ones that made some vets literally vomit just from *seeing* them later on). haha.

      agreed with you about the stress thing. I tend to thrive under conditions of high "stress" -- like chaos, and lots of things going on -- but I am a very low anxiety person. I can count the number of things I actually worry about on one hand.

    • Hah totally and I mean have you ever even heard of tobacco pipe smokers dying young from smoking? I mean so little actually do that they can't even really make statistics on it lol.

      Sounds like a great guy highest respect for our armed forces and yeah the marines are no joke there's a reason why they are one of the toughest units in the world. My grandfather was also one.

What Guys Said 28

  • Aha! My Personal Computer 💻

    ●We can upgrade it by adding new hardwares. I can upgrade myself too. By doing various things in life. By experimenting several fields. I need guitar to play, I need swimming pool to swim, I need dumbells to lift. It doesn't need all the hardwares it has, but they make it better and year after year, new hardwares are introduced. I can improve myself too by changing the guitar, going into deeper pool and trying heavier dumbbells.

    ●Someday, its hardwares will get old to function specific tasks, like my body.

    ●It has internet which contains everything. My life is full of opportunities too. I just have to enter the valid URL to open the gates.

    ●It needs electricity to run, just like I need food. Too much electricity could blast the system and too much food could make me obese and diabetic? Well, weird analogy lol.

    ●We cannot use PC outdoors. It represents my personality. I'm an introvert.

    ●It's put on a table. Literally, a "computer table". We need a proper place to live for the best output. And a good balance in life too.

    ●It makes me happy. My PC is always there for me when no one wants to be around me. I'm same. I'm loyal and I try to make everyone happy. Sometimes it gets viruses and gets hanged, so do I when I'm ill or just not in good mood, I find it hard to communicate.

    ●It has some hidden files and password protected folders. I have so many secrets and some information only for specific people.

    ●Its wires are interconnected and plugged in the right slots. I'm also an organised person.

    ●It's not the best PC around, but it has fine quality speakers, decent GPU, good CPU & RAM, multimedia keyboard with quality mouse, HD monitor but not Full-HD. It is an assembled computer to give optimum performance. I'm jack of all trades, master of none. There's nothing in which I can call myself best in the world, but I can do so-so many things fairly well. While I'm too good in some and just acceptable in others. I'm versatile, I managed myself according to the limits, resources, potential and requirements.

  • My cellphone:
    -It is cheap, thus reminding me I am poor.
    -My dad got it, from Italy. This both reminds me of how much I dislike him and also about how I wish I could travel somewhere, but I can't because I'm poor.
    -I talk with my crush on it, which reminds me I almost can't talk to her in public at all.
    -It has a computer, which processes everything using only pure logic, without emotion. I think if everyone acted out of logic, and not so much on emotion, the world would be a better place. Also, if pain is an emotion, I certainly don't want any of them.

      Double-interesting, since I'm usually a total fail of an abstract thinker hahah.

What Girls Said 13

  • My stuffed animals.

    It really shows my outlook on life because 1 is pretty, 1 is ugly, the ugly one is small, the pretty one is large,.

    The beautiful in life doesn't always come in large quantities and it can literally be anything. Something childish, a childrens toy really, or something sweet, a gift between two lovers.
    The ugly comes in life too, an it seems to be a lot more (or bigger) than the beautiful simply because it's so negative.

    People tend to pay more attention to the negative, the ugly, rather than trying to glimpse the beauty it's hiding.

    Without the ugly in life, there'd be no beauty. They compliment each other.

  • To my immediate left is one of my dogs, but I gather you're asking about material objects. In that case, to my left is a beautiful Mason & Risch upright piano, made right here in Toronto in 1925 with ivory keys that are yellowed but still intact. I guess if I think about it, the piano reminds me of several things:

    - That high quality musical instruments are harder to come by nowadays unless you pay a lot of money for them or you get one that is basically an antique (like my piano). Average, mass produced instruments are fine but they aren't made in countries like Canada or the US anymore.

    - The realization that beauty often comes at a price. Looking at the ivory keys is a great testament to that thought.

    - That classical music has the ability to reflect every single human emotion, and it serves as a reminder to us that we are emotional beings no matter how often we try to suppress those feelings.

    - With years of dedication and self discipline, one can master their passions. Even masters need to constantly work at keeping up that skill. My husband plays this piano beautifully and with such grace. I can only hope that our future child (ren) will want to sit at that piano with the same determination.

    There's probably more that can be added to that, but I'm not good at analogies at all.

    • Ah that's beautiful. I am a huge fan of classical (actually Romantic more than Classical, if we're getting technical) music.

      Piano solos were the first "classical" music that really hooked me. There was this guy in my high school who played the piano, and was super eccentric, and insanely good. (He was actually on the faculty at the Universität Mozarteum in Salzburg, Austria, a couple years back... so he's apparently even better than I knew. lol)

      He played with this INCREDIBLE passion. It was unbelievable, and inspiring. Kind of thing that brought tears and a smile to my face at the same time.
      The first pieces he played that really stuck in my head were Chopin's Ballades and Scherzos, and Liszt's La Campanella. (The latter of those was even more amazing because he's pretty short and has small hands, so, those parts with all that jumping 2 octaves back and forth... yeah lol)

I was in the outside lane, and a big truck was coming around the other way, about halfway into my lane. I couldn't pull off any further (because sheer drop on the outside), so, I just kinda hoped for the best.
      I could feel the right-hand side of my car losing traction -- literally, starting to go off the drop -- and then the truck clipped the back left side of my car (big long '77 De Ville) and actually spun my car back ONTO the road.
      yep -- if I was driving a car that was even 2 or 3 feet shorter, I'd probably have died.

(And these aren't poor people who are forced to buy cheaper things by economic circumstances, either.)

      That shows good long-term planning ability, tbh. Same thing with the "cost per wear" approach to buying clothes -- again, I know lots of people who buy less expensive clothes but end up actually paying more in the long run, because their clothes wear out faster (and have no resale value).

  • To my left, is my phone.

    It reminds me of the text messages sent by friends, which if I never had any, I wouldn't hear the pleasent ring and the funny text that I hear 24/7. Though it's annoying, thinking about it right now makes me proud of having friends that are always supporting me.

    It reminds me of the ring that comes when a friend is calling, wanting to speak to you about something interesting (usually), or calling to cheer you up on a crappy day. A ring to tell you that your friend is right there and wanting to hear your voice, a ring to make you know they're by your side to help you with whatever, and that you are also there to help them, too.

    And a shitty outlook, when someone spams you on text and yur phone is constantly ringing, annoying the f**k outta u

    • Hahah yeah. Nice thoughtful response!

      My phone's default ringtone (and text alert tone) is "No Ring". It's just silent -- mostly because I have a super-weird sleep schedule, but also because I get into "grooves" of concentration where any disturbance would knock me out of that groove pretty fast. But, I have special ringtones for my husband and my oldest son (the only one of my kids who's old enough to have his own phone), as well as for anyone who's directly or indirectly charged with the care of my kids (= coaches and so on).

      When I'm chillaxin and I don't mind randoms, I change it to "vibrate all".

      And even if my phone is totally incommunicado, my husband/son can still go into my "find my iphone" account and make it blow up that way, the same way I do when I misplace it (which happens way too often, lol).

    • Welp, usually my phone's on my bed so vibrate doesn't work as well, but I get the 'Find my iPhone' thing lol

  • To my left is a laundry basket which reminds me I should do a load this morning.

  • The object to my left is a jewelry box.
    It's worn and weathered on the outside holding the secrets of the valuable contents.
    One would need to see beyond the exterior to ever appreciate the treasures with in.

    • Very cool, yeah.

      I bet that being "worn and weathered" makes it look better. At least that's how I feel about most of the things like jewelry boxes that we have around here. Also, my favorite leather jackets and so on -- they look better with time.

      My husband has even succeeded in convincing me that I'm actually more beautiful with the stretch marks and other battle-scars from 3 natural childbirths. (He genuinely thinks this, too -- it's not an act. He runs his fingers along some of the lines I've gotten from giving birth and actually gets hard... yeah, I win at life. lol)

    • Dang, I want one like that😥 Hell yeah to you for landing him!!!

    • yeah, he kinda loves everything about women, lol. my husband and my father both -- they just love everything about us. including the periods, and the cray cray, and the mood swings, and... like, all the things.

      I mean, I definitely do my part every day to keep things hot and fresh in this marriage, and I never take anything for granted. but, yeah we've been married 15 years and it gets better (and hotter) every day.

  • To the left of me is wall. It reminds me of being trapped. I can't go anywhere, I can't do anything. I can't drive, I have no job, I have no money, I just feel trapped!

    • Oh dang. But, you have the internet at least... that's a pretty powerful connection to the outside world. Can help you do at least SOME "exploring", of the virtual kind if nothing else.
