Our Own Triumphs and Struggles

I love music and one of the CD's that I love to play is about the triumphs and struggles of Charlie Chaplin. He is a man with great passion to his family, his music and film, peace and love of America. He was born in England, had a successful career in the US and died in Switzerland. His childhood was full of dream and later on accomplished in Hollywood. His life was full of controversy especially when he was seen as a threat and a Communist by the US and therefore exiled in Switzerland. One of the music he wrote was SMILE. Out of his sadness and heartaches, he composed this song. That musical show made me realized to keep on hoping and have faith in God. Brooke Shields made mention too that this is the all time favorite song of Michael Jackson.

Why I blog about these things? Because...
  • A friend of mine had a marital problem and they wanted a divorce. I listen to her pain.
  • Another friend had fallen out of love for her husband because of financial situation and family member interventions. I am her shocked-absorber.
  • A friend ignored the infidelity of his wife. Poor man.
  • A friend suffering from depression because of health problem of her family member. My heart goes out to her.
  • ..........so on and on....
Famous people or ordinary one's have problems, no question about that. We all have our own struggles and yet, when we feel that it's not going accordingly, we are lost! We thought that God has forsaken us. I have my own depression too. But, I take life very lightly. "THIS STORM WILL PASS", I convinced myself.

When things are alright, we are so triumphant! Have we taken the moment thanking God for the blessing? When we are in Joy, we sleep with a Smile on our face. But, have we really taken the time to talk to God for that happiness we felt? I bet not the way how, when we are in deep sadness. We usually cry to sleep at night and refused to accept the truth.

Whatever problems we have right now, PRAY! Seek for answers and do not lose HOPE. Accept the things that we have no control of. Acceptance of reality will lighten the burden. Have a good day Everyone.


Smile, though your heart is aching
Smile, even though it's breaking
When there are clouds in the sky
You'll get by.

If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll see the sun come shining through for you.

Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear maybe ever so near
That's the time you must keep on trying

Smile, what's the use of crying
You'll find that life is still worth while

If you just smile.
