WDYS # 147 -A Roundup post

Sometimes I feel like I’m drowning

Overwhelmed and surrounded with

Challenges and problems pulling me down

I have to survive with my guts alone

But I’m always buoyed and pushed up

By the resilience that is ingrained

Deep in my soul, supporting me always

Keeping me afloat in a sea of difficulties

  1. Yes. There are time we get overwhelmed with the things going on in and around our lives but it does help us become resilient. Such an inspiring post, Sadje. Congratulations on the turn out of responses as well. 🙂

  2. Sometimes we have to dig just a little deeper to be able to pull ourselves up from our boot straps.

    “What does it mean to pull oneself up by one’s bootstraps?
    People understood the expression “pulling yourself up by your bootstraps” to mean “attempting to do something absurd” until roughly the 1920s, at which point it started to evolve toward the current understanding: to do something without any outside help.” 😀
