Smile

Smile in that pain

like sunshine in that rain

that smile today, an okay

will come through like a ray

nay sayers, them say No Way

but me know say I fit pray

with eyes unmoved from the prize

be a champion up to the highs

Its been a very looooong and seemimgly endless six months and I've probably gone through every emotion possible. But c'est la vie. Growing up, my father always said 'be prepared'. But the truth is nothing can prepare you for some of what life throws at you. There is an inner fighting spirit that is within all of us, but the real difficult bit is getting it out to work for you. I do know that a smile and giving thanks all the time is powerful though. Spent at times, drained at times, but I gave up 'No Way' a while ago and that's what keeps me going. You should do to.

Its funny but recently I found the lyrics to Adele's song ''Someone like you'', quite emotive. Completely unrelated I know, but I'm complex like that. May we continue to live in interesting times :)

Hi, glad to see you around. I am on a sabbatical lasting 6 months now smile Maybe it is similar issues, different solutions. One never knows.

may you always stay strong, always remember this resilience.
when you are worn out,battered and bruised,
still shine your light and be glorious like the sun,
there are those that smile because of your smile

SAVO: You are kind, potato cake. Thanks for visiting my blog smile
You seem to have great inner strength and a positive nature, Savo; qualities that are essential in times of difficulty. The smiling picture you posted today is the perfect medicine.
