This THING called ANGST. When you’re FEELING HOT, stay COOL. (ReVisited).
(I absolutely LOVE this Article that I had written some 3 years ago, in 2009. It harbored a special personal significance in my heart then. Still, I have decided to trudge down memory lane again with this one. Enjoy!)
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 That energy? 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?
