This THING called LIFE.
Into our LIVES, some rain must fall, right?
One cannot expect rays of sunshine all the time.
Forget about the eternal sunshine of the spotless mind.
In the business world, FAILURE is a "four letter" word.
It can sap and drain your CONFIDENCE.
Isn't it global recession now?
Mass unemployment, credit crunches, missed opportunities - the lot.
You'd cringe when big fat accounts zoom out of the window like birds fluttering away quickly for better weather.
LIFE IS NEVER EASY, NOR FAIR.
You might not be able to observe the mechanics of your own cycle, but that doesn't mean they don't exist.
REALITY DOESN'T GO AWAY WHEN YOU STOP BELIEVING IN IT.
Human follies, uncharted lives, false friends, they will all exist in our daily struggles.
It ain't summer all year round.
And winter comes with the frost bites.
Ahhh ... this thing called ANGST.
When you are feeling HOT, stay COOL.
SMILE. LOVE YOURSELF. SMILE AGAIN.
Because if you do not love yourself, then it is impossible to love others.
Everyone needs some self-respect.
REALITY bites, ahh ...
This bite can scorch really deep and hurting.
SHARON K, a fellow blogger provides some useful tips on how to weather this storm:
STAY POSITIVE, ALWAYS
Have you ever
Stopped to think
When tearing hair
And on the brink
Of wanting out
Of things to come
That all those things
Aren't even done
They haven't happened
Yet you act
As if they're here...
You just react
React to what?
It's in your mind
You liken it
To what's behind
Yet when it comes
You find you sail
Right through it all
Without a wail
Why did you waste
Maybe next time
You will just "be".
FOCUS ON THE FUTURE, FORGET THE PAST
Life isn't as we all expect
It doesn't go that way
We have to make the most of it
And take it day by day
Have no regrets about the past
And do not live in fear
Of what might come, and never does
Just put your focus here
Here in this moment, that's the place
To make the most of life
Whatever comes, just turn it 'round
Create some joy from strife
I know you have that strength in you
I've seen it there before
Just draw on that to see you through
Don't look back anymore.
SO WHEN YOU ARE FEELING HOT, STAY COOL, CHUM.
That is, if you wanna stay in one cool piece.
Are you blessed with a lyrical soul?
Can you thrive under the BEST and WORST conditions?
Look around you and count your blessings.
There are people who are born without limbs.
There are those who are blind.
Yet they are alive and breathing.
SMILE. THE WHOLE WORLD SMILES WITH YOU.
And tomorrow can always be better.
SO TREAD GENTLY.
PLAY IT SAFE.
WALK ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF WISEDOM.
