Checkmate

Olympus has (almost) fallen: hard and half dead!😞

Don’t Quit
by John Greenleaf Whittier

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all up hill,
When the 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 strange with its twists and turns
As every one of us sometimes learns
And many a failure comes 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 just 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.

Oh hell yaaa. Sound familiar, all those positive lines of words. We survive in most cases, but since we are imperfect mortal beings, there would always stumbling blocks come and go in life. Some are minors, causing headaches few days and they’re wrapped. Major one/s? Puuiiih: sleep disorders, nauseas, tummy upsets, miserable uncertainty. But wait, no matter how bad those big issues affect us, it’s not a checkmate yet. Never. Fighters don’t give up without fighting back and stick to the fights. Olympus should not fall (yet). Agree that in most cases, success is failure turned inside out.

Alexander Graham Bell said “when one door closes, another door opens, but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.” It sounds real, moving and encouraging. We may on purposely dumb ourselves to hear the inner voices to let go and move forward, because honestly who says it’s easy to detach ourselves from some sentimental memories. I type this and speak to myself to release & move on (but really, in tears and bleeding heart).

Here’s another popular saying to mend a broken emotion: “when life gives u lemon, made a lemonade.” Looks perfect for some cases, but for massive life changing situation? Still, despite not easy it may be the right moment to exercise all those sweet hopeful faithful prayers: Don’t tell God U have a big problem, tell problem U have a big GOD. Amen.

Real no play2 and chatty too, but only to selected one/s I am afraid. Brainy as if a high speed train but with beautiful pretty choo-choo rhyme as it’s absolutely more than a lump of cortexes. Beauty at its finest version. Also a Behavior as an alpha but in soft & mild version, like a piece of pinkish tempting cotton candy. In short, U won’t regret to explore deep passionate mind journeys together with the author🌷
