Rest if you must but don't you quit

I was out of track in blogging for some time. It was just that I didn't want to pressure myself when the going got so tough. I was so overwhelmed lately with piling up major tasks in my job and challenges bouncing off each other such as deciding about the kids' schooling as well as considering about relocation due to my baby's health condition having been diagnosed with asthma after severe recurrent bronchitis. It's good I'm not into paid blogging, otherwise I would have needed to live up to the pressures even if I didn't feel like doing it. So, now that I have surpassed another challenge and have gained momentum once more, I want to share again my nice thoughts and thrills here as much as I want to keep this place as my personal journal.

I so love this poem and let me share it to you so that if you feel like quitting, read it:


Don't Quit

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 queer with it's twists and turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns 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 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 worse,
That you must not quit.
