The blessings of God and hard work of mine!
If you can’t find a way to get out of this mess, start cleaning it.
Sometimes we are stuck in really hard to get out situations that even hoping for someone else to rescue us from them, turn up the most futile thought.
A situation that appears like a mess and almost impossible for us to endure anymore.
If not that, then at least a soulful wish to have this mess like water off a duck’s back.
But then, neither the mess will clean up by itself nor will it keep us away from its dirt.
We will be both impacted and demanded to work by ourselves for it.
Until the time we are hoping for anything from outside to come and navigate our ship to a safer shore, we will just find ourselves squandering time rather.
The mess you know is just never by chance or a random thing that happens to us. It’s only for two reasons: either it’s a punishment or it’s a challenge!
But still, no Matter what has been the reason, we gotta take it as something that’s trying to unveil our side that we too have been unaware of, our immense abundant ability to make the mess spotless and sparkling.
The hard part is not standing up to start cleaning it but making up our minds to no longer perceive it as something like pulling teeth.
We need to take action before the mess piles up to a point where we feel almost drowned.
And as the beautiful quote by Paulo Coelho goes “You drown not by falling into a river but by staying submerged in it”, I feel we need to understand the fact that no one else will help us from drowning if we aren’t in that real desperation to live.
It’s not our cry for help that will save us, but our soulful love for life that will push us to take in as much as it might cost to live.
I recently read a beautiful line in Hindi language on the backside of a trolley, “Rehmat Teri, Mehnat meri” which exactly means, “The blessings of God and hard work of mine”
It felt that this is the Golden key that will help us clean this mess we feel we are stuck in.
