The worst storms of life never last, but tender hearted people do!

I know us all face storms in life but how we handle it determines our success and failure! The worst storms of life never last; but tender-hearted people do! How do you manage your storms in life? How did I manage to come out of raging storms? The story of my life is an inspiration to many!  Ooh yes!  Life may not be easy! Life may not be easy!  But have always got my legs over obstacles  So many people are swept away with their storms and those who stand firm are very few! I was 20 years old when I experience the darkest year ever! I could ask this funny question time after time; why did you left me without saying goodbye? In fact you tried but I couldn’t understand.  Whenever I ask myself, I find tears rolling down. Life has not been easy since my dad passed, but I had to learn how to hung on over there Six months later after his death, I got a terrible accident were my tarsal and metatarsal bones got broken! A person who used to toil for life was unable to walk without clutches. My life became so miserable since I had to depend on other people in your absence. My body was brochure but my spirit was whole! I will not lie to you, I feel like going on.    But have seen days I didn’t want to get out of bed. I didn’t even want to put on clothes  I didn’t even feel like brushing my teeth I have seen days that are so dark!  But I just wanted to keep moving And I didn’t even care where I ended up Or what you called me They came and passed  They came to pass I kept the faith and hope  I faced a lot of storms  I lost a lot of friends I lost a lot of strength I lost a lot of courage But I kept  Down on my knees, I still believed on my better days ahead! Lonely I still believed Lame I still believed Betrayal I still……….. I didn’t give up on my dream! Success is never easy! It comes bit by bit Failures and storms are the ladders of success I wrestled with my storms  And didn’t make lame excuses I smiled when tears cloud my eyes And never missed an opportunity  I was in control of my actions  And made hard work failures be like a fiction.

I lost a Dad that I will never find again in life!  The worst storms of life never last but tender-hearted people do! 

Thank you!

Hi Oliver,

I'm sorry to hear that you've gone through such a difficult time and that you lost your father. I'm glad that you're optimistic about the future, though.

Dear Atim,
What a huge share. I really appreciate the open door and vulnerability you exposed to us. I have to be honest now. I was feeling very down this morning. It has been a year of pandemic mode. My country was hit the worse. The economy is in the toilet. And unemployment is higher than ever. My life has been drastically affected. But I am okay. I am well, and no one I know has died. But today I had a difficult time moving forward, creating a new business and new life. I am excited, motivated and inspired. But the overwhelm has paralyzed me for a moment. The fear of climbing the biggest mountain of my life is in front of me. And I searched for appropriate words to make a difference, and get me going. Today I am going through my storm. And I found this post. So I must sincerely thank you sister. Because it really helped me to move forward and see the sun that is already shining. You are appreciated.
My father passed away too, and I miss him. So I tell him that every time I do. He inspires me to be accountable. Talk to your father anyway. Especially when you miss him.
Hugs...JoMarie

Please forgive me, I just looked at your book and realized that you are a sister not a brother. I edited my comment accordingly. Please forgive the western way of grasping names. You rock!
