How do you get to the light at the end of the tunnel?Tuesday, July 14, 2009
an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty” – Winston Churchill
When you reach the bottom of the hill, don’t you hike back up?
When you cried your eyes out, don’t you start feeling better?
When you made a mistake, don’t you ponder and move on?
There’s no time machine that can re-do what already happened;
There’s no magic wand that can wipe-out all the misgivings;
There’s no nose-twitching that can change the direction of the wind;
There’s nothing you can do to undo what’s already been done.
The difference between learning and regressing,
The difference between happiness and misery,
The difference between victory and losing,
The difference is your attitude in moving forward!
We all make mistakes, and its fine to feel bad about it;
Pour out your emotions and give yourself a day;
Ponder, reflect, ruminate, deliberate – work on it one last time;
But once it’s done – kick yourself and stand up and make the most of it!
It takes too much energy to be negative and miserable.
Looking at the bright side, not looking back to regret
But learning from what transpired - and picking up the pieces.
Listen to the children, listen to them laugh and cry
They fall and whimper, they complain and whine.
Yet they pull themselves together, standing up, bright-eyed and giggling.
As true as the sun sets and as glorious as the sun rises the next day.
So stop feeling bad, sorry or desperate,
Give yourself a push – and chuckle on the way up,
Life is so short – you heard it plenty of times,
You and only you can direct the movie of your life!
" I know that your goodness and love will be with me all my life;
How do you get to the light at the end of the tunnel?
Once I get to the light at the end of the tunnel, it's always nice to have that apple-pie with vanilla ice cream, halo-halo or mojito depending on how tough the walk is!
