The brave stand Tall

Now, this is what we call attitude. Amid all the difficulties…the brave stand tall.

When things go wrong

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the 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.

Miles to Go before I sleep

There is a beautiful poem by Robert Frost which I read at some time in my childhood years. I have always remembered the beautiful lines – The woods are lovely, dark, and deep, but I have promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep. The never stopping, never retreating, just the will, persistence and courage to go on and on. Now, I guess that explains why I sleep late at night, doesn’t it? lol

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

Have Courage to hold on to your Dreams

There is a saying that “Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage” and how truly so. I found some very beautiful & truly inspiring lines here:- http://jo-inspirations.blogspot.com/2009/09/hold-on-to-your-dreams.html that I couldn’t stop myself from pasting here.

There is inside you
All of the potential
To be whatever you want to be,
All of the energy
To do whatever you want to do.
Imagine yourself as you would like to be,
Doing what you want to do,
And each day, take one step
Towards your dream.
And though at times it may seem
too difficult to continue,
Hold on to your dream.
One morning you will awake to find
That you are the person you dreamed of,
Doing what you wanted to do,
Simply because you had the courage
To believe in your potential
And to hold on to your dream.
