Hope during the trying times….

Sometimes, it’s one of those days, where every step that you take leads to a mistake, every thought to an error and every word leads to disaster. It’s those days that very often, I feel like curling up into a ball, oblivious to the world moving by.

Yet, something keeps driving me on. Maybe it’s hope, maybe it’s comfort that things will get better if we just believe in ourselves and forge ahead. Below are some of the lines that I keep returning to when things fall out of hand, especially when the fault line was no where your responsibility.

 When things aren’t going well for you

And times aren’t what they should be,

Just focus on the positive

And think about what could be.

Acknowledge what has happened–

Don’t lose sight of lessons past–

But don’t allow the negative

Distracting thoughts to last.

Take what you’ve learned and start from there;

Draw strength from your frustration;

And let this added sense of purpose

Be your new foundation.

It’s hard to follow any plan

Precisely to the letter.

Though life right now is difficult,

Things will in time get better.
