Giving up is not an option

There is a famous proverb saying, “EVEN NECTAR IS POISON IF TAKEN IN EXCESS”. It duly expresses the current pandemic situation. In Maharashtra the government eagerly announced the Unlock – 1, happily hoping that at least now the public is aware and knows the way of existing after this in society. But perhaps they were wrong in identifying us and even we ditched them. Maybe this situation is endless. We need to adopt to this new world where such pandemic would now be usual.

 How the condition is worst:  Friends have time but can’t spend together. The air is pure, but it cannot be experienced. The nature is healing but explorers can’t discover it. Life has an opportunity, but we are not able to turn it to our goal.  The people caring us are diagnosed positive, none but we are left to care for ourselves. What can this condition be named – strangely a Miracle? Did you observe one thing these things are affecting life but developing the nature. I am not depressing you but showing the reality.

We can motivate ourselves in this situation by enjoying some soothing music, helping mind and body to relax by doing meditation, look for good, distract yourself from emotional thoughts.

I would like to share a poem:

  • Life may be tough
  • Things will get rough
  • There will be bad days
  • It may all seem like a haze
  • But through it all
  • Always, always stand tall
  • Giving up is not an option
  • Never turn your back and run
  • Through good times and bad
  • Through happy times and sad
  • As long as you keep moving
  • You’ll never stop growing…

But yes, if taken seriously and with a smile we can get out of any state even as big as this ever-extending universe.
