An Empty Jar

Ever felt like an empty jar longing to be filled? most if the time we try to fill that with things like feathers, which are too light or mercury which on the other hand is too heavy.Sometimes flowers, thinking its beauty and fragrance will fill us up!

but the truth is it’s the flowers that smell and look nice, no one is going to look at the jar! So then we realize this truth or other times the flowers die out so we get rid of them (if you’re really stupid you try to live with it!) then you  try to empty yourself further by various means till you hit the bottom and realize you can’t get any emptier than you already are. by this time you are drained and have given up.

But did you ever stop and ask the question “What was I created to contain?”


If you are a novice writer like I am, trying to put into perspective the purpose of life by writing and feel rather insecure about it your writing, then fear not IWSG (Insecure Writer’s Support Group) is here to rescue you. I realize it helps to know that you are not alone, these guys have a collection bloggers similar to you who have come to write about their insecurities rather than fear it.

“The purpose of this group is to share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!”

So join the group just so you know you are not alone 🙂

    Oh, interesting question! I feel like I CAN’T NOT write. I think the purpose is to create. So rather than putting stuff IN the jar, I want to get all the pretty (or scary, but whatever) things OUT of the jar–let them FREE. Because while I LOVE to look at a butterfly in a jar, if it STAYS in there, it will die. It needs to be set free.

      What I had in mind was when I wrote this is: We need something to live for, That is something we are passionate about (e.g. writing) If we have nothing that fills us up with passion (the jar) we have nothing to share, we tend to share when we have so much it over flows (not empty jar). If that makes any sense 🙂

    I occasionally consider myself a half-filled jar but confoosed as what the other half should be filled with. But knowing me, I suppose it would be a bit of heart noh. LOL.
