I found this really profound poem online and wanted to share it with you during these testing times.
When things go wrong as they sometimes will, When the road you're trudging seems all uphill, When 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.
Excellent passage huh?
I remember a time not too long ago when I was concerned about something not turning out as planned. That morning for know apparent reason, I flipped on cable and there was the legendary Joel Osteen - who I'd never seen before. (I'm not religious, but thought --- why not? There was some reason I turned on the station at that time and I decided to follow through on my hunch.)
He made the comment that you never know what the next 72 hours will bring and you have to stick to your guns.
Somehow I knew that message was for me. The event I was concerned about worked out in just under 72 hours. Thanks Joel! :-)
