I Am Still Holding On…

Photo by Evelyn Chong on

Sometimes it seems letting go…

is easier than holding on.

Sometimes it seems holding on…

is better than letting go.

Sometimes the see-saw of life…

leaves you pondering;

which end to let go

and which end to hold on to…

Midnight Motivations and Musings.

Inspiring quotes, hold on, motivation, life, success

Sometimes we are so down that we wonder when it would all end. When would our climb through the valley get to the mountain top?

The truth is that all that time spent at the bottom helps you to develop the muscles that will take you to the top and when you do get to the top, you appreciate the climb far more.

Hold on tight to your rope whatever bottom you may be climbing out from. It may happen sooner than you think.

Just hold on – Writers quote Wednesday challenge.


I believe and have faith in love
for in it lies immeasurable strength
Even on day’s when my faith in humanity
diminishes to micro pieces
that it won’t even match a mustard seed
On such days, I look up to the heavens
and facing the sky
I let the shadows fall behind.

There are moments when faith
is all that have
to propel me forward and hold me upright
On such days, I clasp my thin flicker of faith
like a loving companion and cloak
and allow its strength to seep into me
till my hope rises again.

There are moments
when the future might look bleak to us
when so much seems to be going wrong
in such moments
we turn to faith in hope
that the future will look brighter
if only we can hold on.

Faith includes noticing the mess, the emptiness and discomfort, and letting it be there until some light returns – Anne Lamott

Faith does not make things easy, but makes them possible – Luke 1:37

Writing this week’s prompt ‘Faith’ for WQWWC after days of minds battered with all that’s happening around us is a welcome reprieve even though it’s a hard topic. A hard topic to write on when it’s seems as though the World is momentarily going berserk and my faith in humanity dwindles.

Then again, if we completely lose our faith, then all hope is truly lost and we’ll find ourselves living in a World that’s not only pessimistic and negative, but will become a highly toxic World.

So, I’ll hold onto my flicker of faith that love will always win and my faith comes from above.

P.S: You can join our online party this weekend. It’s always a good time:-)
