Ludicrous

Sometimes we have to

chase away the demons

reclaim our sacred space

dig in deep with the paddles

of self-belief and what is right

in the murky waters

and shun the ludicrous thought

of quitting, but then

to keep on battling forever

at the cost of a bleeding heart and

shattered peace of mind

may be even more ludicrous…

  2. It is such a fine line sometimes between battling through and saying actually, enough is enough. We all have to do what is right…I have to say, I hope you are not about to declare your leave from WordPress, I couldn’t take another goodbye right now!! 😒.

    This is so beautifully and thoughtfully written Punam. So much substance and relevance ❀️❀️

    1. No Rachel, I am not leaving. Yes, I know it is a sad day and perhaps my words echo that. Everyone does what is right for him or her.
      Thank you so much for your kind appreciation. ❀️❀️

  3. great use of the prompts but we must never quit, discerning our battles helps but this is a huge reason why I suggest we work on ourselves first so that we can help others more skilfully!

    Who is leaving WP and why … did I miss something?
