Monday Motivation | This Too Shall Pass

I couldn’t have been less original! I am not the first person to say it to you. And I am not going to be the last person as well.

If you are in that phase of your life where you are convinced that you are at a happy place or things are going to be great, then more power to you. I hope that everything stays like this for the times to come.

However, if right now your life seems like a drag and you are extremely discouraged and demotivated in life. I want to tell you that this too shall pass. Nothing is permanent in this big world, apart from the lessons you learn.

Not a patronizing promise, no.

I can not understand the pain you are going through. I know that you are feeling those aches in the places where you never experienced anything like this before. I wish there were a guide for your struggles. But there isn’t. Every battle is unique, and no one has a right to belittle anyone’s effort. But you know what? You are going to be the best guide for yourself in this struggle.

Life will keep on moving on. It won’t wait for you to realize or embrace any changes. You have been given a life and it will happen, come what may.

Not seeing the joy in the snow will only lessen the joy in your life. The amount of snow will remain the same.

These will seem like big words right now. But trust me, this the secret of life which everyone learns at their own pace.

If you are sad today, remember you were not like this forever. Things do change. This will too.

Why me?

If you find yourself surrounded by this question, breathe. Relax. You were not put on this earth to know the answer to each and every question. And this is one of those questions. It’s you. Yes, it’s you. Now what? Only you can help yourself.

There are hard struggles and harder situations. You may not win. You will learn a lesson. Not everyone wins, that is not under anyone’s control. Also, not everyone learns a lesson and that is absolutely under your control. Learn those lessons, enrich your life and make it worth.

There are days, weeks and sometimes, months, when I am not at my best. You might see me as privileged but I have my own struggles and none of my duties is to make you see what I am going through or gain empathy. My only duty is to breathe through these times. Tell myself that I am okay and I will be better. And that is the lesson that I have learned from my struggles.

Do not forget to tell yourself, everyday, whenever you get time, that things are going to be okay. Even if your heart and mind says the opposite, tell yourself that both of them are wrong. Manifest. Believe. Work towards it.

There are days, trust me I know, when you don’t feel like doing anything. It is okay. Spend that day in your bed, if you feel like. Things get better. I don’t know when. Tomorrow, next week or may be next year, but there is going to be that day when you will see that things are going good and it has passed.

Have a great week, y’all!

  1. I really need to hear this today. Though I do encourage myself that whatever bad stuffs I’m going through will pass. Sometimes, hearing someone else say it to you feels good and assuring. Thank you!

  2. This is such a great and powerful post! It is so true that it’s easy to think that being in a hard spot or time in life will seem to never end, but everything does pass at one point or another. It’s always important to remember that. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Yes, I always try to remember that “it too shall pass”. I am in a challenging situation right now and am trying to hold my head high.

  4. Thanks for this inspiring post. I think you’re right that you can never hear these words (this too shall pass) enough. It’s important to remind ourselves.

  5. It is important to remember that no matter how harsh the storm is, the sun always comes out after it. It may be longer, but it always comes out.

  6. I so enjoyed this post – I too live by the motto of “This too shall pass”, and it reminds me to enjoy the joyous moments as they will, unfortunately pass, and those more challenging moments will pass as well. Such a lovely lovely post. <3

  7. this is such a great post, thank you for sharing. I always find myself overthinking but i happens to all of us. Love this post.

  8. I’m glad that you are transparent. There is no perfection and recently I’ve haven’t felt my best despite it being the new year. I know I will come around soon.

  9. I am so inspired after reading your blog post. I definitely think you put a lot into perspective. I find myself overthinking somedays into an oblivious brain freeze. Somedays I just question everything and think hypothetically instead of practically. I don’t know if that’s really a good thing. Rumination never is. Excellent blog post.
