Rough Times...

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.....

Life as we know it is not a bed of roses.  Not in a long shot.  Many of us go through the motions of presenting to the world someone not necessarily real, someone who we would actually like to be or some make belief persona we want people to think we are. What the reasons are I can't really tell.

We all have our own "secrets" as to why we do what we do.  I don't believe that most people are this way, but I do believe many are.  I at one time would have had my opinions and without knowing all the facts may have "judged".  Today I am not so fast to judge.  The reason is my friend, yes the same one who is a bundle of laughs is also a bundle of sadness.  It seems to go hand in hand with her.

After another long conversation with her (seems we have many of those lately),  I have learnt that not all is what it seems.  Here I was thinking she was relatively happy and content with her life.  I mean she's always smiling, being funny and not seeming to have too many worries until recently...

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a fellow turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out.
Don't give up though the pace seems slow -
You may succeed with another blow.
Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done. Now, if you know what you're worth, then go out and get what you're worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hit, and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you are because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain't you. You're better than that..!
