Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from Indomitable will.

-Mahatma Gandhi

Weak, tired, drained,
Hope , faith, belief,
Tears, pain, agony,
Hope, Faith, belief,
Helplessness, lost, anger,
Hope, faith, belief,
Love, Patience, Will.
Life, life, life.

Trying to figure out which one to hold draw the strength know its gonna be ok.

I dont want to lose myself before this.....before I find the answer....hopefully soon..Someday:-)

Till then I just keep walking.

My Favourite Poem........

The Climb
. . . . . . . . . .
by Emma Nurton
Climbing up a mountain,
Pulling yourself higher andhigher.
Out of the pit of misery.
Things seem to look brighter.
Grass is growing, Birds aresinging,And the sun emerges from theclouds.
Then you start to slip,
To lose your grasp,
And down you fall.Not quite to the bottom,
Just teetering on a ledge,
Could you go over at any moment
Have you the strength to climbagain?
The pain of your cut soulBurns like a fire,
The anger, hurt and frustration
Come flooding back into yourmind.
The fight for survival startsagain.
Overcome the fear,
Search for the holds,
Rely on the support from before.
I know it's going to be difficult,
But you did it once,
You can do it again.
Remember, you're not the onlyone -
Out there are other climbers
Fighting their own battles,
Searching their own soul
And conquering their own mountains.

Have agreat day!

Shit happens and life goes on..!! hang in there and with time things will get better..

PS Those lines are now written on my cubicle.. loved them..!!

we all have our good and bad days. hard to say what to advice you. i always try to remain positive and fight hard.

When times are hard and it gets difficult to walk, cheer up, because at the end of it, you'll come out much stronger.

When going through hell, just keep walking, you will come out and the devil might not even know you were there

At 4:12 PM, Blogger qwerty said...

Thanks for your comments, Ekta. WOW, I am not sure what to make of that poem except that every alternate line is "Hope, Faith, Belief".

Given your love-hate relationships with chocolate and life, here is my two bit advise:

Hope for a box of Godivas.
Have faith that you will atleast get a box of Lindt & Sprungli.
Believe if nothing you will a box of candies from Yuen Tai Trading Company Limited.

You r finally on my blog darlin!

At 5:24 PM, Blogger icyblue said...

Life is surprising at times. Keep moving with that faith in "hope, faith, belief"

Worry not, coz one day everything will eventually be fine.

Be strong thru ur walk :)

I have no better words than Nora Roberts, who says..."If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place."

Hope you have that "someday" very soon...:)

At 7:01 PM, Blogger karmic_jay said...

Hang in there. A step at a time, a day at a time and there are always the sights along the way. It's not about the destination it's about the journey too, so take in the sights, the good and the bad, the one you make sense of and the one you don't. We will all be richer from the experience. :)

For some reason, the man you quote does not appeal to me. This is my first comment in your blog, so maybe I should not be so intense. But I do not care. I shall sya what I have to.

People (including yourself) might think that I am really a lowlife who does not appreciate the so-called "great personality", but I have mature reasons for not respecting the man in question. He has done nothing, which a million others have not done more effectively.

Yet, people quote him, when they forget the million others who might have said things much better than he ever did.

As far as the rest of your post is concerned, I have a simple answer, which will solve all your problems if you can just accept it. Whether or not you accept it is left totally upto you.

I am a simple, direct man, and will not hide my expression behind masks of diplomacy. If you really want asnwers, look within yourself, instead of others. Learn to trust your inner voice, rather than be lost in the voices of the so-called messiahs.

In you, you shall find answers, for the answer is YOU!

This is the first time I am writing to you, and I understand that my comment would upset you and your so-called friends. Therefore, I shall not write to you again, unless you want me to.

Do visit my blog and read my archives, and you might find something interesting.


At 9:07 PM, Blogger M (tread softly upon) said...

Keep on walking and you will discover many sights on the way. And hopefully all your answers.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. Hope you are having a great time with the folks.

Amazingly, all of the words are abstract things. I am still pondering over the thought "why do we always drool over abstract stuffs, where do we get real answers". Well, i have just one sentence for you---
Sleep with your pain, but dont get up with it. Keep the 2nd, 4th, 6th, 7th and 8th line... but will the essence of those things remain the same if you didnot have tears, pain and agony?
Keep writing!

At 11:05 AM, Blogger lil _kath said...

...what keep us alive, what allows us to endure?
...i think it is the "HOPE"!!

...Hope is the thing with feathers
...that perches in the soil
...and sings the tune without the words
...and never stops at all.

...cheer up sweetie ^_^ "Life" is beautiful.


At 11:11 AM, Blogger Yashita said... very familiar with this feeling...but tell u wat? "nothing lasts forever,even cold november rain..." so hold onto the hope Ekta...things will change,life as u will find out is after all worth all the pain:) stay happy:)

At 1:24 PM, Blogger amitsinha said...

hello ekta !
nice words and quotes, i agree to it. But along with faith and hope there is also motivation. I have seen long term bad phase in my life and over came all those . I did had faith and a doubtful ray of hope , but I felt motivation also both self and by others which helped me . and words are the most powerful element in world , I would love reading such words in ur posts.
thx a lot for creating a ray of hope in ppls minds.

At 9:41 PM, Blogger Inkblot said...

oh yeah, do. and don't forget to smile in the mirror now nd then too...laughter brings strength and perspective too!

At 3:32 AM, Blogger Gumnaaaam said...

I wont say u to be patient..neither i will say to endure pain..i will say to react on the situation wht ever ur heart desires...even if it desires to cry..let the tears roll...dnt stop them ...dont really stop them..
and on the other hand...keep a close eye on yr legs...tht they must be moving...yes u shuld keep walkin ...this wuld only lead u to overcome this phase of life..i aint saying if u wont keep on walkin and if u wont struggle to get out of this phase ...u will always be stuck here...its never like tht....It just tht time keeps on moving fwd and fwd and fwd..either good or bad phase...time overcomes all of them..But if u will keep on stuggling on ur own... u will surely get out of it on ur own...and wont have to depend on the mercy of time...and ull get a personal satisfaction tht u struggled ..ur self...and this will help u in further stages of life.. :)

At 10:55 AM, Blogger Dawn....सेहर said...

No matter what dear..there is this hope..:D
I Hope You Dance
I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty-handed
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance......I hope you dance

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Livin' might mean takin' chances but they're worth takin'
Lovin' might be a mistake but it's worth makin'
Don't let some hell-bent heart leave you bitter
When you come close to sellin' out reconsider
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance......I hope you dance

Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us a long.
Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder
where those years have gone.
I hope you dance......I hope you dance
I hope you dance

This was my first post on my blog...cheer up

At 11:51 AM, Blogger suniieee said...

its sooo hard th find hope and strength bwhen you fill like everything you ntry to hold onto is completly gone

At 12:59 PM, Blogger Chiya said...

Good one!!

It isnt very necessary what you hold on to, just hold on anything. dont let go.
Cry, shout, feel helpless, get depressed, loose patience, but just DONT GIVE UP. especially when you have the utmost desireto do so. My expereince says when I get past the utmost desire to give up right after that things get better.

Good that you have this strength of keep walking.!

A saying my mother used to say that comes to my head is "this too shall pass" very simple and yet it reminds us that things will move forward and you just gotta beleive that the lessons learned are well worth the journey.

Take care!
