Of life and living…

It is true what they say that not many really appreciate what it means to be on their own. It’s not just longing to be with someone but the sadness and loneliness that engulfs one when you recall the wonderful and treasure-able moments that you shared with the person. The comfort found in the clasp of his/her hand, or the warmth of their embrace, and the dream that this person will remain around in your life as a friend whom you’ll hold close in your heart and see in your dreams every passing night.

Better trust all, be deceived and weep, than doubts one’s heart that if believed could bless one’s life with true faith. Pray that you may receive the spirit of discernment to be able to tell the difference between a person’s character trait and a habit.

We often pray that God may grant is the courage to change, serenity to discern what we can’t change and the wisdom to tell the difference. Losing control is allowed and acceptable but not letting go. Sometimes we find that we have messed up completely and we feel dejected, ashamed or mad at ourselves. But we have to remember, that it’s not falling that matters but how high you bounce back that counts. There is always untold satisfaction and comfort found when we realize how much potential we possess within, pick up the pieces, bind the tapestry and move on with life!

It’s all about today being cruel, tomorrow being kind. We are living treasures if only one discovers the amazement and amusement of this. Also we need not forget that it takes considerable amount of knowledge to discover the impact of our judgments’.

We ought not to forget that ‘character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trials and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved’. We just need to reorganize our lifestyles until we feel we are headed in the right direction, and only then can one realize that you’ve gained more than you ever thought you could.

Hey Judy,
You have a gift for telling stories on ink so effortlessly… Your story flows and grips the reader till the very end. And what's more, it's so relevant to everyday realities. At this rate, Paulo Coelho's gonna become very irrelevant.
Kudos!
