Don’t Quit

by: Unknown Author

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh.
When care is pressing you down a bit.
Rest, if you must, but don’t you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns
As every one of us sometimes learns.
And many a failure 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.
Success is failure turned inside out –
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt.
And you never can tell how close you are.
It may be near when it seems so far:
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.

 LYRICS

“The Sun Is Rising”
When life has cut too deep and left you hurting

The future you had hoped for is now burning
And the dreams you held so tight lost their meaning
And you don’t know if you’ll ever find the healing

You’re gonna make it
You’re gonna make it
And the night can only last for so long

Whatever you’re facing
If your heart is breaking
There’s a promise for the ones who just hold on
Lift up your eyes and see
The sun is rising

The sun is rising

Every high and every low you’re gonna go through
You don’t have to be afraid I am with you
In the moments you’re so weak you feel like stopping
Let the hope you have light the road you’re walking

You’re gonna make it
You’re gonna make it
The night can only last for so long

Whatever you’re facing
If your heart is breaking
There’s a promise for the ones who just hold on
Lift up your eyes and see
The sun is rising

Even when you can’t imagine how
How you’re ever gonna find your way out
Even when you’re drowning in your doubt
Just look beyond the clouds

Just look beyond the clouds

Whatever you’re facing
If your heart is breaking
There’s a promise for the ones who just hold on
Lift up your eyes and see
The sun is rising

The sun is rising

Even when you can’t imagine how
How you’re ever gonna find your way out
Even when you’re drowning in your doubt
Just look beyond the clouds

It is the small things that matter

morning-inspiration-03-30It is good to take a deep breath once in a while and just pause and shut your brain off and just feel… Feel what is around you. Take it all in and enjoy the moment. You will find something good in everything by just allowing your self to feel and connect with your environment and with your self.

I have realized that the little things make me the happiest. My morning glories climbing up the railing… driving with my windows down and music on, feeling the wind on my face and in my hair… the evening breeze while I walk… my mothers smile or the excitement of my husband when he first sees me… painting my nails a different colour or seeing my favourite ice cream in fridge!

I can sometimes be materialistic… I love getting expensive presents for my husband for special occasions… usually things I have been pinning for… But I have realize that those things bring me immediate gratification and happiness not necessarily long term happiness. I wear things for a while and then store them to “preserve” them or put them in a safe place… whats the point?

Although my love for sparkly things will continue… I have if nothing, least recognize where true happiness lies. And that is with the people you love and the simple things that make you feel connected to your surroundings and your soul.

Cheers 🙂

Today I
Poet: , © 2012

Today I have decided,
That it’s time to take control.
There won’t be anymore sitting,
And waiting, this is my goal.

Today I see it so clearly,
I am all that I have.
If I want to get something done,
It’s up to me to pave my own path.

Today I will set my goal,
And work to see it through.
I’m tired of being afraid,
It’s time for my dreams to come true.

Today I am quite happy,
And confidence has made its way too.
I as a person have grown,
From now on, to me I’ll stay true.
