There’s one thing I love most about myself.It’s not a secret for those who know me.I feel it’s my best quality and also my most exasperating.It depends on which side of the table you are on.If we stand on the same side it’s going to be a party, but if not we will need to find a middle path.
Still confused?I will give you a clue.It’s a quality all little children have.
Children are perfect.They know this secret to success.When you grow up you forget it in the course of adulting and naysayers.The secret to success is persistence and perseverance.
That’s the only thing that can melt rocks and build bridges.
But what about things which just don’t happen?However much you try?That’s when you have to be wise enough to know.You have to choose to stick to things which you can change and wise enough to know the ones which can’t.
Life I feel gives all of us chances what you do with it is important.
Do you give up, give in?Forget your dreams because someone told you to be afraid of ridicule, someone tried to break your heart?Really ?Are you going to let this happen?
I don’t think so.You must try one more time.Believe one more time and have faith.The only thing which is confirmed is that you will not succeed if you don’t try.
I love that all the bones in my body are the persistent kind.I am persistent and it's what I love most about me! #ThankfulThursdays Click To Tweet
When the going gets tough, put one foot in front of the other and just keep going. Don’t give up.”Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart
This is my mantra!When the going gets tough, I get out my reddest lipstick by Sugar, and my highest heels and get going .The lipstick makes me feel good, the heels make me feel taller and its a handy weapon!
Never lose hope. Storms make people stronger and never last forever.”
Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart
Genius.intelligence education are all important but give me persistence any day .Thats my secret talent.Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan Press On! has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”
― Calvin Coolidge
When you try, try and try again something changes.Time, situation, you everything .What is important is to focus and persist.But look inside and choose the things, people you want to persist at .Half the battle is won with the right choice.
“It doesn’t matter how many times you get knocked down. All that matters is you get up one more time than you were knocked down.”
Roy T. Bennett
When you look at kids learning to walk you understand this deeply.They don’t know about giving up.They just know they will try again.Then again, one step at a time, till they run.That’s how a character is developed.Don’t we all want a strong character?The type of person who can weather any storm?They make good friends, wonderful partners, and superlative parents.
Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.”
James A. Michener
I realize that giving up may sometimes be the best option.That’s the logical part of my brain.My hubby insists I have a third brain(very unscientific of him).This third brain he claims is made up of all persistent cells, which never give up.Now the only thing which helps me in situations which cannot be saved is praying.I pray and ask God to guide me, to help me choose my battles.
“Don’t ever give up.
Don’t ever give in.
Don’t ever stop trying.
Don’t ever sell out.
And if you find yourself succumbing to one of the above for a brief moment,
pick yourself up, brush yourself off, whisper a prayer, and start where you left off.
But never, ever, ever give up.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Eena, The Tempter’s Snare
When I started writing 3 years back(I had written one poetry when studying in standard nine before that ), it was to share what I knew about health and healthy life as a doctor, and how it helped me become a better mommy .I also wanted to share my dream of being a mompreneur.
Did I know what I was doing?Partly .
Do I regret starting to write?
No never.It’s the most fun roller coaster ride after marriage and mommyhood.My blog baby is a blessing and challenges me every day.Did I want to write nonfiction which was not about my profession?Not at first.But I realized one thing while writing.The blog is not just about helping others.It also helps me .It’s cathartic.When I am writing its like a soul cleansing.
The one quality which helped me write is persistence.
English is not my first language.But its the language I learned from age four.It is also the language in which I love writing.
But did this make it easy for me to write?Yes and no.
But persistence did.I can write more easily than three years before.That for me is progress .I challenge my brain to participate in contests even outside my comfort zone as long as its fun.
“Writers remember everything…especially the hurts. Strip a writer to the buff, point to the scars, and he’ll tell you the story of each small one. From the big ones, you get novels. A little talent is a nice thing to have if you want to be a writer, but the only real requirement is the ability to remember the story of every scar.
Art consists of the persistence of memory.” Stephen King, Misery
Nothing in life is stronger than perseverance; time only promotes it, failure is afraid of it, negative people hide from it, and disease is affected by it. Even rocks give way to perseverance: because if water perseveres its impacts on the surface of a rock long enough, the rock starts to wither.”
When all is said and done, life is a beautiful adventure.You just need to persist and have fun.Now only if I could fly! #ThankfulThursdays Click To Tweet
