Hello My Dear Readers 🙂
First of all may I wish you all a Very Happy New Year !
Yes I have not written for a month, as I had to recover from a very stressful period. Suddenly life threw a very hard curve ball at me which put me quite off my track and took me almost six months to get back on my feet again. Finally I have begun to raise my head up and getting back to my usual routine. This is not due to one person or one particular event, but a series of happenings over six months, that annoyingly almost pushed me back from all the hard work in the past !!!
These disruptions happen to all of us in different doses at the most unexpected times of our lives, that throws us off balance completely sometimes. Luckily I held on and was a very good test of my strength. I did get stressed, anxiety set in getting drowsy, but I never got depressed. So its a very big comfort to me, to know that I will never fall into that darkness again what ever life throws at me. And that I can face challenges with courage 🙂
I had settled myself and was going on with my work and studies, and did not expect any major disturbance like this. With this problem suddenly, my mind jumped on to another track trying to sort out this and hence there was a clash wanting to go on with my usual routine, and the mind trying to sort out another issue at the same time. This was high stress as the mind cannot cope with, two major issues at the same time. I had to stop almost everything that I was doing and take a complete break, as I needed a clear mind to solve the problem I had in hand. Unlike dealing with people, dealing with a system, one can be completely helpless, as the systems work according to very strict rules, which almost has no room for any personal needs unless life threatening serious problems. With all what is going on from one side, in life there comes a balance too as, when one system is stressing, I have got immense support from, the medical system. “They are people who really know the value of human life. Especially those who have struggled and come up and are trying to help others” They have faith and believe in my mission, my working towards encouraging and motivating others from what I have and going through. They cannot get me out of the system, but they can safeguard me from being unduly stressed so that I can get on with my life with all what I am doing. I am so very grateful and blessed to have such wonderful and caring people by my side. I thank them all the time, and they tell me when we are doing good to others, in turn they come back to us too 🙂
“I am like a tree ravaged by burning fire which has burnt over and over with time ..… yet again, Risen, stronger every time even before the rains come. I rise over and over again like the bird of fire, the Phoenix 🙂
My mind is finally settling down, writing here at length itself is a sign that my mind is back on track again. We come across so much of problems, due to various reasons. With all this, I went down both mentally and physically. When you feel weak in your mind automatically your physical health goes down too, due to lack of appetite, sleep and rest. I became so stressed that I could not even concentrate on my course. Which worried me thinking if I had taken on too much too soon. But thank goodness I am able to put my mind on to it again !!!
Challenges are part and parcel of life, they come for us to face and learn more, and become stronger. That is how we move on to higher grounds. I have sat down and thought of ways how I can face them better next time. I have joined a group exercise class as doing things with others there is a different atmosphere as well companionship when one is living alone. Your good hormones start to work to make you more positive and you can lose some weight and have a better shape too 😛
There will be a next time and a next time for challenges. Every time we fall we need to rise again and again to face the world with more strength and courage. As human beings that is possible. This is the beauty of human life. We can always learn and plan better and keep on moving, becoming better and better as long as we live. Isn’t that true ?
Hope you learn something new from what I have written and then pass on to another of what you learn. That again is the beauty and the value of knowledge. Knowledge is enhanced when shared and it travels far and wide like the ripples all over the world, touching so many others, and lifting up the darkness and lighting their lives with colour and beauty 🙂
Many Blessings of Love, Light and Healing Energies from me. May you find Joy and may you find Happiness and Peace 🙂
God Bless ❤
