Inspired by Tara's blog: What's Your Sentence?


Every person can be summarized in a couple of significant characteristics. You may remember your daughter by visualizing a scene in which she is shouting! Your teacher might be remembered by a frowning face by the blackboard. Your daughter could always bring a smiling face in your mind when you think of her.

Even things can be the same. You may remember your room through a picture in which a window towards a green scenery is highlighted. Your college could be remembered by its beautiful flowers.

Let's just think of the good points and characteristics. I guess almost everyone has a hero, let it be a real person or an imaginary one. When you think of your hero, you can name some of the most significant characteristics of him/her. Can you bring your hero's picture in mind and tell us what and who you see?

My hero is a very energetic girl, with a happy face. She is writing something on a piece of paper. She's a creative writer. She lives in a plain house, near a river surrounded by green trees. She is not still; jumping, singing and playing. Yet, at times, she is so thoughtful and contemplates on the world and all creatures presented by God. I guess this is the time she feels inspired to write.

Wait! Let me see! She is somewhat almost me there in my mind. Just a little bit change I -here in reality- need to turn to that hero in my mind!


Now your turn.

My dear inspiring friend and teacher, Tara,

Thanks a million for taking some time to read my post and leave such an encouraging comment.

It is always one of my hopes to do as you said; that would be a joyous time, and sure will result in a piece of writing in which there would be beautifully dancing happy words.

Thanks and have a beautiful time.



PS- You are always a hero in my life. Your encouraging and inspiring words always make me feel confident to continue on the path of writing.

Dear Sahar,

Thanks so much for your precious comment.

Very valuable words. Yes! Such a person is truly called a hero. You've chosen a good one.

Thanks and have a great time.

Lovely writing! I'm so glad the One Sentence challenge inspired this post! As you know, I always enjoy reading your reflections on life. I hope that one day we can sit under a tree and write together. :)

nice blog Zahra and I'm so glad your hero is you. This is so true and very important. As you said, no one needs a hero rather than himself or herself. However, I still have to work on myself to accept myself as my own hero. I think I haven't got to this point so I still have hero outside of me. My hero is mother Theresa. I admire her because she was kind, thoughtful, caring and helped poor people without expecting anything in return. Her possessions was her rich heart and nothing more and she lived a very complete, fulfilling life as well as having peace of mind. To me, she is a hero.

What a lovely pen!
Well done, dear!
You are a real hero :)
My hero is one who always tries to be happy in spite of all problems and tries to make others happy too. S/he doesn't have any expectation from others and just is doing his/her best which makes him/her a unique one.
