Holding On

Rudyard Kipling said
"If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: 'Hold on!'"

This is how I've been feeling lately. Like the world is this crazy fast paced swirl of indifferent wind around me; blowing me this way and that way. It doesn’t care that I am tired or sore. It doesn’t care that I just want rest. But I cannot give up or give in. I must go on because that’s what we do. To give in would be failure and that is not something I have in me. I LOVE LIFE and I will fight all the way to the end.
