When life’s obstacles put my back against the wall, what keeps me going… my family When challenges arise and I have nowhere to turn, what keeps me going… my friends, When darkness overcomes me and there’s no hope in sight, what keeps me going… my faith When the road is long and hard and I feel like quitting, what keeps me going… my confidence Living every day is another opportunity for me to go for everything I want and dream of So never give up When life brings you down ask yourself, “What keeps you going?”
It’s been awhile since I stopped and took time to reflect on the things happening in my life. Since this COVID-19 chaos, everything has been up in the air and all my daily routines have been thrown out of whack. But my optimistic trait has me seeing a positive side to all of this. Having this pandemic happen has given me the opportunity to actually stop my life and take into account all the good things that are around me. I am fortunate to be a lot closer with my family, both in proximity and in relationships. I value life more, regardless of all the obstacles that are in my way. I’m appreciative of being able to stop and take notice of nature and how it continues to progress regardless of what goes on in my life. And most of all, I’m just happy to be here in this moment, knowing that I have had good memories despite all of the negative aspects associated with this virus. This will pass because there cannot be darkness without light. So I continue to have hope and treasure every breath I take.
When there is darkness and stagnation in front of you… go straight When life causes extreme hardships… go straight When trouble overwhelms you… go straight When your path becomes hazy and unclear… go straight When obstacles become too difficult to manage… go straight The course you take must never waver Always have faith and never falter Forge onwards to greater heights so that your dreams and goals may come to fruition and then and only then will everything turn out better If you just… go straight
Just remember, the storm will pass It’s not going to always to rain because the sun will continuously fight against all odds to break through the clouds to keep its light alive and shine for all the world to see
There is greatness inside all of us We have to believe in ourselves, work hard to find it and never give up hope that we are worthy If we do that with our mind, body and soul, then greatness within us will emerge
When things in your life go absolutely wrong, never lose hope When despair sets in and you see no way out, never lose hope When the decisions you make take you further from your goal, never lose hope When you try your best but it isn’t enough, never lose hope Your faith in yourself is unbreakable You are stronger than what you appear to be Your will to overcome challenges is resilient You can make it through all your dark times if you keep that spark alive and believe that all good things will come to fruition if you… never lose hope
