“Hard times don’t create heroes. It is during the hard times when the ‘hero’ within us is revealed” -Bob Riley
All of us face tough situations in life, and we have a choice, either to look up and face the problem eye to eye , or step back, and walk away. The latter choice is what most of us take, but facing the situation due to any circumstances, let that be compulsion or the inner will to compete, & drive the problem away, is something that we all seek, but yet only a few stand up.
I do not believe that anyone is a coward, nor do I believe that all need to stand up and face the situation to fight back, sometimes situation just compels you to sit down and watch, many might disagree with this statement and say that It is not always easy to make an effort, until you have not even a percent of energy left to fight.
This whole drama, about challenging times or tough times is just left to perception. One may perceive his/her situation the way he would like to , for one facing the problem he might feel it is too gigantic, while the viewer might say, it shall be alright soon, do not worry ,everything will be ok , but the consolidation also just works for some situations. If the gravity of the situation is too high, words alone can’t just relieve a wound, in one’s heart. It takes much more.
“People need hard times and oppression to develop psychic muscles ” – Emily Dickinson
Time is a very funny thing, everything happens for a certain reason, and that remains a mysterious fact. People believe that it is called “Karma” , but I believe that this whole world is running on a set of principles , that are so delicately based and rely on each other that each of our action corresponds to the threads of that situation that triggers a certain principle, hence creating a reason, and a situation in which we land up in.
Therefore we alone are the creators of our future, Controlled actions can give you a better view of your own future. “Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment ” – Buddha .
We should focus on creating a better future for ourselves by trusting ourselves and believing that we can achieve something what we want. Everything falls on this planet, so do we, but getting up against gravity , is something that make mountains look so big, so should our actions be Gigantic and groundbreaking, It is us who can make a difference , and I am sure most of us look forward to make one .
This life itself is a challenge let’s face it & Never Give UP!
