Endurance--a quality we must cutlivate.
Today was a very sad day for me. I lost my bird. (which was a rescue and which had been with me for over four years. Those who follow me on my instagram know that she would fly to my hands and eat from my hand. She was a fully flighted bird and she was left free inside my room). She went peacefully in her sleep.
Life is fragile. We have to make the most of the present moment. Also we need to have certain non-negotiable personal rituals so that we can cope with the shocks that life will give us ever so often. For me it is my gym work-outs, meditation and writing in my diary every single day before I go to bed. These things have been scientifically proven to strengthen the mind immensely.
I am grieving for what I lost--but I know I will get over it. I also feel grateful for the love I received from the bird, and how much she trusted me.
Anyway, I diverge. The blog marathon must go on.
For today's post, I thought I'd do the One word sixty second challenge. It's a great exercise to get your creative juices flowing. Check it out by clicking on the link.
You have one minute to write on a word that it gives.
I got this word 👇👇
Here's what I came up with in one minute:
'Endurance is the name of the game,' the gym instructor told his client who had just joined the gym.
That was the last thing she wanted to hear.
'Endurance my foot. To give me cliches like this is not what I hired you for,' She glared at him as she struggled to walk on the treadmill.
Do you think I should continue the story? Let me know in comments below. (If you are reading this in your inbox, do head over to my blog and leave me a comment.)
Also if you take part in the challenge, I'd love to know what word you got, and what you came up with. Copy paste what you came up with in my comment box. Also tell me the word you got.
A new day tomorrow--a new post tomorrow.
Take care of yourself and do not forget to be grateful for all that went well today.
