One day

One day your battles are over,
you are in peace with the world
and at ease with yourself.

When you go to bed, you can sleep.
In the morning there are no regrets
and you always find reasons to rise.

There are no skeletons hiding in the cupboards
and you don’t have to worry
about what you might have done,
said, slept with during the previous night.

On this fine day there are flowers,
friends really care what is going on
-they even answer your emails!-
and you succeed in fixing the plumbings.

Until then, stay yourself,
fight the mood and be patient.
Battles are not won in haste.

    moving.
    for a struggle on a daily basis, this can keep a soul to hold on..
    thanks for sharing…

    • Thank you very much! I am grateful for your visit.

      Not everything we experience as negative, is our own doing, and we have to be patient to make changes ourselves, but that day is there, waiting in time 🙂

  2. Battles are not won in haste. Or memories soon forgotten. But they do eventually fade.

  3. Beautifully sensitive Ina and very true. Sometimes we just have to have ‘faith’. 🙂

  4. I think these two lines are the same as i think, ” at peace with the world and at ease with yourself “.

    • Hi Harry,
      so true, when you are okay with yourself, you can be okay with the world 🙂 Thank you very much!

  5. Thanks I needed to read that this morning

  7. Oh loved it..to enjoy life one needs patience,love and faith
    about the plumbing..can’t stop smiling…

  8. encouraging…
    living- one day at a time, step by step 🙂

  9. Days like that are to be treasured.

    They don’t come all that often but when they do they need to be stored for reference on different days 🙂

  10. Ah, for a day like that!! Gives me hope, Ina – thank you! 🙂

  11. ‘Until then, stay yourself,
    fight the mood and be patient.
    Battles are not won in haste.’

    You might’ve been speaking directly to me, Ina. (Boss troubles…)

    Though sometimes the battles are of our own making…

    Thanks for sharing!

    • Hi Diane
      Thank you, sorry you have boss troubles! I suppose having a boss, means it is not always easy. I hope you will work it out!
