Musn't Quit!!

It is rightly said, that life is unpredictable .. Unpredictable to the point that the challenges that it poses are not exciting anymore. You want to give up and choose easier options to bring back predictability to your life. Such is my case right now.

Things look pretty messy, I feel that life is probably at the worst phase that it can get.
Things probably cannot get worse than they have right now.I have no idea how to make things right again, but I so truly and deeply want to.

Some say forget it and dont worry (the easiest option of the lot)
Others say learn from your mistakes and move on.
But something that I truly believe in is that - Perseverance and Determination alone are omnipotent, and truth and honesty give it an extra push.

The last option, is not as easy as it sounds . It might require a lot of strength to not give up when tireless efforts go unrewarded. There might be times when you feel that all the effort is not worth the pain that you go through trying to make the effort. This is not true.

So , from a wellknown poem that I learnt as a child,

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.

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.
- C. W. Longenecker

I wont quit! I will Fight ON! And I will do all that it requires to make things right - I know not how - but I will figure it out .
