Hold on to what is good,
even if it’s a handful of earth.
hold on to what you believe,
even if it’s a tree that stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do,
even if it’s a long way from here.
Hold on to your life,
even if it’s easier to let go.
Hold on to my hand,
even if I’ve gone away from you.
Pueblo Indian Prayer
I decided to share that piece I had copied into one of my old notes from a long time ago. It is easier to let go and be, but sometimes, a little linger, a little holding on, a little hope is all that is needed to step closer to the goal post where you score that long desired goal!
Turbulent may be the storm of life that assails you and your boat faces the risk of capsizing, hold on to the oars and do not stop steering, keep rowing! Make sure the boat stays atop the sea and against the waves, you will surely pull through. At the end you may be tired, yes, but even more victorious!
Sometimes it is a loved one for whom your concern has climbed a crescendo, yet there isn’t any light at the end of the tunnel to bring that person back to the desired state of complete well-being and wholeness or whatever it is you so desire. Keep hope kindling with the fire of your love, strengthened by your outstretched arms of care. Nothing is tagged permanent except change.
You are tired of you? Not surprising. Yet, somewhere or something in the world is darkened and needs your light. So light up with faith, get filled with hope, you are a budding flower and soon you will bloom when Spring comes.
Just Hold On!
