The Only One Thing You Need When In Despair And You Want To Quit
Yeah, I remember asking Amulen Winfred; "oh yes I know I am gonna succeed and get through this, but why, why is it that I get anything good after struggling for it while others get the same thing or even better just on silvered plate or at least easily?" She would look into my eyes and smile and then say, "it is okay. It is best this way. Maybe there is something special you get because you struggle for your success"
And truly, though I would not be convinced 100% by her answer, I would move on. And as you all know how such days happen, soon they pass and your fire and warmth returns like never before. And so even here I am still moving on. And every morning, as I wake up to chase after my dreams and all I wanna be, I hear her voice, "it is okay. It is best this way. Maybe you get special" and so I move on.
What is the point?
What do you need in such times?
Do you think you would need money? Oh no, some of those times are brought by money itself! But surely, you need something, yes, something to help you through such times. And that something is; simple motivation or inspiration. Call it, as one writer puts it, the lean-on-tos (someone or something to lean on in case of despair).
It can be your dog! Can't it be? Most probably.
Very short but dangerous!
But where can you get this motivation in such times?
Yes, meditating upon your life and how grace and your dedication have moved you to where or what you are now can be your foundation on which to build your hopes and motivation for more conquering!
Take homeWhat gives you inspiration and motivation in times of despair? The fact is you shall have such hard times but you will have to conquer them and move on. And yet this conquering shall need you to have some lean on-tos. What are your lean on-tos? Find one today and be assured to make it even when distress and disaster strike.
NB: By the way, as I write this article, I am in bed very sick. Yesterday but one, I got caught up by flu and I thought it would just go. But as it seems, it was not only flu, but it was malaria instead! I have no appetite, all joints are painful, sweating all the time, and headache is killing me. Killing me? Oh no, we don't die just like that for there is so much more that I need to do. By the way, one way to have a prolonged life is to have a serious life goal. There is how your body fights to live on so as to accomplish the dream (we will come back to this when discussing ways to keep young and in service).
And so I am going to the hospital for treatment. Just pray for me. When I wake up again, more writings and inspiration shall be your way.
