When I encounter challenges in life, I always have this poem that would help me cope with everything I’m going through.
I’m not really sure where and when I read this poem first but it kind of stuck to me. So, I am sharing this to you as this may also help you in times of hardships, just like how it has helped me…:-)))
When things go wrong as they sometimes will
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill
When the funds are low and the debts are high
And you want to smile but you have to sigh
When care is pressing you down a bit
Rest if you must but don’t you quit
Success is failure turned inside out
The silver line of the clouds of doubt
And now you never can tell how close you are
You may be near when it seems afar
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit
It’s when things go wrong that you mustn’t quit.
I have no idea who wrote this but if he is standing in front of me right now I want to give him a big big hug and I’d like to thank him for writing this poem and thank him for giving me the privilege to read it. And of course I’d like him to know that I will be forever grateful for this gift. Yes, a GIFT; to me it is a GIFT and I too would like to share this with YOU.
This poem has really been example on how I should view the experiences I have in my life, and it also helped me see that no matter the challenges in life there is always a solution to it; no matter how dark the path you are walking on, there is always light towards the end of it and no matter how heavy the burden you are carrying there is always someone who helps you carry it.
It feels good knowing that, doesn’t it?
But we should also know that just knowing it is not enough we need to make it work, it’s like knowing a recipe on how to bake a cake and actually baking it yourself, and just how you ask? The answer my friend is all up to you. As the saying goes life is what we make it.
We are who we are right now is the result of the choices we made. Our choices may not always be right and we may never get to change it but we know that there is always a way just as long as we never QUIT.
We can rest from time to time but we should not include quitting as an option in our lives, don’t you agree?
I hope that this poem will stick to you and will inspire you as well. Or if you have other inspiring quotes you live by as well, I’d also like to know and learn about it.
I’ll bid you adieu for now, ‘til next time, but before I go I’d like to say Thank you for reading my blog and Enjoy Life!!:)) as we only live once…!!:)))
Much love, my friend..:)))
