Weekly Photo Challenge: Resilient



Age isn’t just a number; it’s a reflection of the hardships we’ve faced, the laughs we’ve shared, the times we’ve fallen, the tears we’ve shed. In essence, it is a true measure of one’s resilience.


Life is an obstacle course, a test of endurance, if you may; it has its highs and lows, twists and turns. Each day brings with it new battles to fight and new reasons to celebrate, a roller coaster of surprises both good and bad; every passing year makes you more resilient.


This photo is an homage to life in all its glory.



Crawling you may be right now
But hold your head up high
It’s really caterpillars that
Turn into butterflies

– Yousuf Bawany


When I see
People around me
Trying to be
Like some celebrity
I look at ye
& say, ‘You see
I was born free
One pod, one pea
I’d rather be me’



Lead a life that’s free of sin

Learn to forget and forgive

Death is not the end, my friend

In thoughts you’ll always live

– Yousuf Bawany




All your plans end up in smoke

Hit rock bottom, pained and broke

Life feels like one cruel joke

Hold onto faith when you’ve lost all hope

– Yousuf Bawany

Words of Wisdom: Don’t Give Up


The funny thing about hope is just when you are about to lose it, something(one) is right around the corner to give you the next dose; all you’ve got to do is get to the corner instead of bailing.
