History ?

History? I mean the history we learn from school, the history we read in the history books; this history is an individual’s perception of what he or she saw or heard and then was jotted down by other individuals, journalists or historians. The information is then edited and maybe even exaggerated by more individuals with their perceptions.

No! The past is written in the pages of the past and cannot accurately be represented in the now. When we humans try to re-tell the stories of these events, we twist, we exaggerate and make comments based on our preconceived perceptions of the events.

The truth? The whole truth? And nothing but the truth? Now this is very hard to come by in written record. But what about in life? Well think about it, right here and right now, the very moment that you are in, reading this blog, you are in truth. No one needs to tell you what’s happening to you right now because it just is. Right now, it is the truth, and no one can question that.

If you tell a friend about this tomorrow it will be fairly accurate. But if you tell another friend a week later? Well, then a couple things are forgotten, maybe changed, maybe exaggerated and maybe even down played. But you are telling the truth, right? I mean why would you lie about something so trivial and insignificant to a friend? But is it absolute truth?  Our own memories play broken telephone on us.

Time brightens the good days and darkens the bad days.
