Everytime you forgive, you do yourself a favour.
Whilst you search here, Whilst you search there,
Whilst you search everywhere,
With a scar, With a scare,
Like a dream, like a nightmare,
Shed your fear,
Your passport to the success you desire,
Lies within you, without a smear,
Search for the spark, bring in you the fire,
Fret not by stopgaps mere,
Continue to aspire, perspire, inspire!
Step by step,
With hardwork, practice and prep,
In your territory, be the best,
And until you are, don’t ever rest,
Stick to what you know,
But update, upgrade and grow,
Relish your journey, revel in your expertise,
Each day in your life, grow more wise!
Anything affects you only so much, as much as YOU let it.
Your ability to smile wide when you’re glad,
Your ability to cry hard when you’re sad,
Your ability to get upset and mope,
Your ability to bring yourself to cope,
Your ability to dream, your ability to wish,
Your ability to celebrate, your ability to cherish,
Your ability to fumble, slip and fall,
Your ability to pick yourself up and stand tall,
Your ability to bring yourself to believe,
Your ability to follow your heart and trust yourself to pursue,
Your uncompromising faith, your ability to hope,
Your ability to heal and swing back to scope,
Your will-power in abundance,
Elixirs if these ain’t, what else is ?
Realise, recognise and revel in your bliss!
Each day’s a fresh start,
Play best, your every part,
Spring ahead, steadfast!
“Keep your face towards the sunshine and you will not see the shadows.”
We come across plenty of situations from time to time in our lives that tend to throw us off track. That tend to depress us. That tend to slow us down and make us think. That tend to break our hearts. That tend to make us feel defeated. That tend to force us to break down and cry. Plenty. Every day.
But, life, is meant to be a rollercoaster ride, ain’t it? I mean, there are highs. There are lows. There is stability. There are moments of peace. Moments of joy. Moments of contemplation. Moments of exhilaration. Moments of sorrow. Moments of satisfaction. And nothing ever stays the same. Everything keeps changing, in some form, at some time.
So, why bow down for sympathy when grief hits us? Why let grief engulf our very being, our very existence? Every single soul goes through grief. Each has his own share of sorrow. Nobody is spared. But how we choose to deal with it makes us what we are, shapes us to who we want to become. The endless grumbling, complaining and lamenting ain’t going to take us anywhere. Being grumpy wouldn’t help us find a solution. The meaningless accusing and whining wouldn’t help us reach where we want to. But that is what most of us end up doing, everytime we find ourselves in an unpleasant situation.
Instead, let’s follow this.
Discuss. Debate. Decide. The 3 magic words that’ll help us reach a better solution than all the mumbling would. Discuss and debate, not digress. Learn how people figure their way out. Broaden our options. And deal with our distress in dignity, because, seeking sympathy doesn’t always help.
Let’s try and be the go-getter. Let’s be the energy. Let’s be the positivity that’ll help us cruise through the worst, successfully. Let’s muster the courage from our success to deal with our failures. Let’s learn to take things in our stride and march ahead.
Let’s be the sunshine we look forward to, in somebody else.
