are those storms
that shower endlessly
and leave only when
they either break a person
or find him too tough to be broken.
Blessed are those who know how to deal with changing circumstances, difficult situations, harsh times, and tough people.
Rest of us, learn with time, as we get hurt, take steps to deal with the pain, heal ourselves, and hopefully grow with it. It is not easy. But not impossible, either.
A lot of people have been writing to me, about the difficult times we are going through. About the challenges troubling them and the hurdles they encounter in their quest to achieve something. This is the first time, I am seeing, so many people struggling in some way or the other.
Those who are peaceful and happy, consider yourselves privileged. Others, it’s okay. Stuff like that happens.
These are unprecedented times when people are losing lives, their loved ones, their health, jobs, money, homes, relationships, and almost everything that we had ever dreamed about.
There are people who had to take a U-turn from the path towards their dreams, who lost projects, some changed their goals and ambitions for the future, while others who had just begun something new, invested money and time in it, now find no motivation to continue.
To all those, I want to say only one thing – You Are Not Alone.
There are so many in a similar situation. Some are facing it at a minor level, and some have received major blows to their lives, during this time.
But we will survive!
Hang On there. For some more. Give it time. Time is the biggest healer. This too shall pass – As all good times pass and like all bad times that don’t stay.
This too shall pass
Just as good times wither away
And wicked moments don’t stay
This phase too shall fly away
Take one step at a time
One hurdle each day
The daunting phase
Won’t leave us bereft
It will test and try our grit
And will leave
Once it shows us the way

Have Faith. All Will Be Well.
More about me –
I have replied to all comments on this part of Beyond Every Border. For the next few weeks, I will be posting updates on Saturday nights and will be here on social media and the blog on Sundays. I will reply to all of you and will post here on ‘my corner’. You can talk to me here if you have any questions.
I am also posting Fire & Ice on the other blog.
I will update Love, Lies, Etc. (Manan fic ) on Sundays, whenever I can. Like I have time today. So, I will post today, hopefully.
As my clinics are closed, I have shifted my consultation completely to online clinics, as of now. I will post about them in my next post.
My novel, The Masquerade is almost ready. It was supposed to be released in April. But it got delayed majorly because of technical glitches. Like, Amazon is not delivering books in certain areas, so it is not allowing the listing of paperbacks, as of now. Honestly, even I don’t want to rush it. If it won’t be delivered, what is the use of publishing?
So, I am chilled 🙂
You cannot rush through things. Sometimes, you cannot do anything and that is the time when God is asking you to sit back and wait for the right time.
I do that. I will suggest the same to you too. Give it time and it will all be fine.
This is my mantra for this phase – Time.
Give it time – Patience, Hope, Endurance follow on their own.
Simar has asked me to write about my writing journey. I will soon post about that. Let me know if any of you want me to write about something. I would love to share my experiences with you. And learn from you in the process.
Lots of love to all of you
take care, stay safe
