This positive affirmation was given to me, many years ago, by a lovely friend at a time when I was struggling with several very challenging things at once. It made me think for a moment and refocus, and happier to take one step at a time; see what you think . . .
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trotting seems all up hill,
When the funds are low, and the debts are high,
And you want to smile but you sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.
Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver lining on the clouds of doubt,
But you can tell how close you are,
You maybe near when it seems so far.
Got to stick to the vigil,
When you’re hardest hit,
When things go wrong, you must not quit!
