Please join me in celebrating the anniversary of Anoda Phase, it has been an amazing 365 days!!!
Someone sent me this mail and I could not but share it:
A lady and her father set out on a journey on a wet and windy day. They felt that the journey might be rough and tough but they decided to set out anyway. Not too long after they started the journey, they came upon a storm, and the young lady asked her father, “What should I do?”
“Keep driving,” answered the dad. She was a little hesitant but decided to follow her dad’s instruction, so she kept driving.
However, she noticed that most cars were pulling over to the side, and the storm was getting worse. Once again, she asked him; “What should I do.” “Keep driving,” her father replied.
They drove for another few minutes when to her amazement, she noticed that eighteen wheelers were also pulling over. She told her dad, “I must pull over now, I can barely see ahead. It is terrible, and everyone is pulling over!”
Her father told her, “Don’t give up, just keep driving!”
Now the storm was terrible, but she never stopped driving, and soon she could see a little more clearly. After a couple of miles she was again on dry land, and the sun came out.
Her father said, “Now you can pull over and get out.”
“But why now?” she queried.
“I’ll tell you in a minute,” answered the dad.
After pulling over, the dad came out of the car. “Now look back at all the people that gave up and are still in the storm” “The reason we are here on dry land and are able to look back at the other people still struggling in and with the storm is because you never gave up, and because you did not give up, your storm is now over”.
This story reminds me of the Eagle. It is said that the eagle is the only bird and creature that does not fear the storm; rather it goes into the storm. Why? Because just behind the eye of the storm is sunlight.
While the other birds are running up and down, making noise and absolutely confused, the eagle goes into the eye of the storm and comes out on the other side of the storm.
Everyone may be giving up, but not you!
The strong may even give up but not you!
The bright and talented may give but not you!
If you keep on, you will get to the other side- where the sun shines!
The battle is hottest when it is almost over
It is darkest just before dawn
Behind the storm is sunlight!
