Isn’t it a wonderful feeling when things fall in place for you, after a long, long time? Isn’t it so friggin’ relieving when you do not have to bear the cross of defeat on your shoulder anymore?
You doubt your own good fortunes, because good fortunes and you are not exactly on good terms! You do tend to think that it is only a lull before a new storm ravages your life, all over again.
People who have failed many times have a hard time believing that they have finally succeeded. Isn’t that also a little saddening, when instead of celebrating their long-fought victory, they are vigilant, waiting for the next big heart-attack?
Yet, success is a beautiful thing, and I pray that all should get to taste its intoxicating flavor, but yet never get too drunk on it, for it is but, a transient state. More than the success, may all get to feel the sweet sweat of hard work on their brow.
When they go home after a long day’s work, may they feel immensely proud. May their chest swell with pride at the tiniest of jobs well-done. May good work become the final destination of many, instead of the adulation.
Meanwhile, I thank my Father above, and wait in anticipation for the next big heart-attack. Can’t let my guard down, can I?
