When the pain is real
when the emotions are raw
When there’s nowhere to run
when the one safe heaven is now a battleground
when the friends and now more like predators
but I have come to learn that pain does not kill

No, I would not let it break me
I look on and forge a way forward
because my tomorrow is in my hands
my destiny needs to be lived
many are counting on me to become better
I will stand tall holding dear the lessons  I have learned from those before me

the journey, though long but success awaits,
we shall win,
as a team, as individuals.

It is well

Here is my quote;

“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.”
William W. Purkey

Life lived with less ridgidity is a life well lived. My darling, allow you to live for today; enjoy all that the Lord has bestowed on you. It will make paddling through the muddy waters easier and life will have less regrets and outpouring joys and triumphs.



We are continuing the same format here and that is: there are no rules to follow. Either make up your own sayings  or use a quote from a famous author that you find gives you inspiration.

Each Thursday, we will post the prompt and all you have to do is participate!

On your own blog post do a pingback to this post and make sure to “like” or “comment” on everyone else’s post. A pingback is when you embed (or copy) the URL of my weekly prompt into your own blog post.

Make sure to check our weekly prompt to see if your entry is there. You can copy URL of your blog post and include it in the comments section of my original weekly prompt if that works better for you.

Copy the badge above and include it on your own post. Tag your post on your own blog as “The Writer’s Quote Challenge,” so we can find the posts in the reader.
