No trouble can last forever!

When I was a child, I used to play this strange game. Whenever I was in trouble, sad, or did not like the way things were, I would tell myself that every trouble has a beginning, a middle and an end; It has begun it will move to the middle and then taper off! All I have to do is just go through it!

Think about all your troubles! Didn't they end?

As adults we sometimes get so caught up with the mess and the pain we are in that we tend to think our condition will last for ever.

How untrue!

Remember this when you are brooding over some trouble that has been bothering you!

The formula:

Has begun ---- Will touch the middle ---- Will finally end!

Leaving anonymous comments! How cowardly can you get?

I find it difficult to accept any anonymous comment. In my world if you are not willing to put your name behind a comment or a stand you take, you are either not convinced with what you are saying or you are a person of deceit, who wants to hide behind a mask of anonymity.

It takes courage and conviction to say what you want to say and stand by it.

This happens in organizations too, where they institute an anonymous feedback. Such attempts only promote a closed culture and is very detrimental to organizations.
