|Writing Pitfalls: Battle Cry – When You Begin To Lose Hope in Your Dreams
The Prompt for Today’s 30-Day Blogging Challenge is a quote by
The above quote is very true, yet I think that the true difficulty is often in deciding what is the best direction for ourselves, especially with regards to our writing.
We can have so many thoughts and ideas yet not know which way to take them. At the same time, money circumstances and personal circumstances seem to delay us, obstacles appearing around every corner, and we begin to feel defeated.
In these elusive and strange times, we experience enigmas, finding ourselves lost in a maze of false perceptions, too influenced by other people’s opinions, instead of listening to our own.
I believe that one of the dilemmas facing our society today, is of identity.We have more knowledge than ever and yet are more confused than ever. We live in a world in which greed seems to win out over morality and where, (despite our best efforts), hard work doesn’t always pay off.
So what do you fall back on when everything goes pear-shaped?
What do you do when all your best efforts fall flat?
You can reconsider your plans and objectives if something isn’t working, but the truth doesn’t always come easy when we are in difficulty. You can decide whether or not to quit your project but most people don’t really want to do that. You can even work harder and hope the situation improves.
Yet there are times when no matter what you do, you don’t seem to get anywhere. In fact, things keep on getting worse.
When that happens, what’s left to fall back on? Where do you turn to then?
The answer is faith.
I’m not necessarily talking religion, (though that can be part of it). It’s faith in yourself. Faith that you will get through the bad times and that you will start moving again.
We naturally begin to doubt ourselves during hard times, but it’s in these times that you can choose to renew your inner strength and determination.
