Don’t give up when the pace seem slow,
You may succeed with just another blow.
This blog is actually on motivation that I kept requiring in a lot of quantity, throughout the month of July. Thought of skipping away writing this part on the blog though, but then I thought, the heads and the tail are the two sides of the same coin, so why skip away when it is all, only a part of the journey. Sharing below, a blend of my concerns that I kept thinking, though unnecessarily and of-course some power packed motivation boosters that helped me come-back and sail towards August, which is now seeming all fresh and happy.. Yayieeeee !
Alrite, here I go….
Actually my aim to share across this post is to tell out aloud that even if the obstacles come your way, as they always will, it is really possible to blow them away from you and welcome back a whole new arena altoghether.
The last month, although started high on energy, yet later towards the month, the photography projects that I took, somehow didn’t content me. Peer pressure and different opinions were pressing me down a bit. I clicked but didn’t reflect. I kept learning a lot but felt so low on confidence to implement things around. For reasons unsaid, I had been hanging to and fro in my thoughts and wondering and pondering over minor things aboard… “Am I doing all fine? Is everything okay? And will it all be okay for my upcoming years?” “What if”… ? And so on I went going crazy over issues which now seem so silly to recall! I feared as if everything was going away from me. In my wonderland, it seemed I was lost somewhere in the midst of dark, standing alone, gazing the sky so high, seeing the birds fly back home, seeing the dawn turn darker as the clock went ticking.
Phew, yeah I am not Alice in real life, although it I keep visiting in my thoughts, my own little wonderland… But coming back from these mystical lands, what I want to point out is this that despite of all the de-motivation that might keep coming on our ways, it is possible to bring things back to shape. Actually, everything is possible, it is just about our mindset, thoughts and actions.
Alrite over these philosophical thoughts, which often help me sail through my tough times 😉 here is an insight to the motivation boosters that I so wish came in some powder form, which I could daily mix in the milk, in place of bournvita and drink it yummy.. gulp gulp ..while becoming all set, forgetting the rest ! 😉
Okay 1st motivation booster on my list is the book “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne which helped me a lot of times to focus on positive thoughts, so as to attract more and more of positivism in my daily life. The sections in the book, “The secret to you” and “The secret to life” helps me a lot to sail through easy in most of the tough times. They helped through this time too. In simple words, this book says, whatever you think, you are attracting it into your life – whether positive or negative !
2nd power booster came from my better-half who never fails in trying hard to keep me coated well with the right amount of motivation at all times. Happy side up, sharing away those superb lines by him..
“When the things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you are trudging, seems all uphill,
When the friends are less and fows are more,
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.”
“Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learn
Don’t give up when the pace seem slow,
You may succeed with just another blow.”
“Success is failure turned inside out,
the silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
and you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far,
So stick to the fight when you are the hardest hit,
for it is when the things seem worst,
that you must not quit.”
“Sometimes you will fall and trip,
But whenever that day maybe,
Just remember that no matter what,
you can always lean on me”
Although these lines always make me all fit and fine and ready to fight back again, but still.. the 3rd power packed booster comes to me, by the virtue of sharing my feelings with my loved ones..discussing with them, talking and listening to them: My elder ones, friends, siblings to list a few..
“On the way to success, my sister said,
you will hear from a lot of people that you are doing wrong…
But never lose hope and keep going.
The day will come when you’ll be all happy about your decision.
Do what you feel is best for you and leave the rest on almighty to figure out”
“Develop a train of positive thoughts, on which to ride towards success,
as your happiness depends upon the direction of the train of thoughts.”
Undoubtedly, I am short of words to describe the love I was showered upon and so full of gratitude for same. And not forgetting, with all these boosters I am now all set to fight back again happy and smiling .. Yayy !
Live. Love. Laugh. & Keep Smiling
