A few times in our lives, we can find ourselves in tribulations, wrapped in hardship and terribly adverse situations, in which we can’t control anything and we are at the mercy of fate. You can only hold on and resist the longest you are able, holding on to the hope that things will be alright in the end. This is not the first post addressing this in here, but holding up to hope is really what this blog is about, and words of hope are never too much…
In the worst moment of my life, by God’s generous will, I got to meet and spend about one hour in a waiting room with a man I have never seen . This man, a young man in his thirties, and I talked for several minutes. This one talk revealed him to be a wise and sensitive man, who offered me an inspiring and powerful message, always present in my mind, and to me worth sharing to all.
“You will embark on a journey in high and rough seas, and you are going to be hit by large and hard waves. But you are the helmsman steering the ship”.
I had never been so conscious of such before; not as much as this statement has suddenly shown to me. I guess we always have a degree of freedom in each and all of these situations, no matter how tiny it is; we can always have a word to say about it – about our life.
I guess we can always choose at least the way in which we will face catastrophe, and react to the blows. If we’re going to quit, or for how long we’re going to resist. If we will believe that the future can hold a good promise and have hope, or if we won’t; and where we are going to be inspired from – why we are going to resist.
I guess we can always choose to be a little more stubborn and keep not giving up. Choose how much more we’re going to hold on to hope and decide ourselves when we will throw in the towel to the ground…if ever.
No matter how hard your life may be at some point,…
Never forget that you are the helmsman.
