Believe #AtoZChallenge @AprilA2Z

My theme for this year’s Blogging from A to Z April Challenge is Cultivating Happiness. Today, B is for Believe in Yourself.


55 Fiction

Fear gripped my heart. The brain stuttered in panic.

I couldn’t believe that he was no longer a part of my world.

Without him what kind of life would it be?

So caught up was I in my insecurities and pain, that I lost the perspective.

How could I forget that I had myself too?

A Word to the Wise


Believe in yourself, your goals and your dreams. You are capable of accomplishing amazing feats. Believe in others as well. Believe in your family and your friends.

  1. It’s 9.06 p.m. this side in South Africa Shilpa so it’s blooming marvellous to get yours early. A lovely reminder to believe in one’s self thank you! I should add that it’s still Friday πŸ™‚

    • Well said, ME πŸ™‚
      Somebody has said it so rightly, “You may be the only person left who believes in you, but it’s enough. It takes just one star to pierce a universe of darkness. Never give up.”

  2. I’m loving the quotes that you’re putting in the end.. Of course, along with the post πŸ™‚

    Sometimes we do forget that it is us who we should care and worried and think about, rather than depending upon everyone else for our happiness.


  3. Wow…you’re at it again! I’m missing doing A-Z this year due to work commitments, but I’ll be hopping on your blogs often πŸ™‚
    Yes, the power of belief in self is what keeps us all going!

  4. Such an important yet overlooked point this is. To always have faith in yourself is no easy job, especially for someone like me who is famous for the soups that I land up thanks only to me πŸ˜€
    PS: Like I’ve always told – you are the queen of 55 fiction milady πŸ™‚

    • True, we must realize that the more we believe in ourselves, the more the world believes in us.
      Thanks a lot, Bhavya, you are too kind! πŸ™‚

  5. Death of a near one is a great loss but the strong belief in oneself shouldn’t die. great writing Shilpa.

  6. Hi there!

    If you get a chance, check them out and good luck with the challenge!

  7. You can write. But it is very tragic if it happens in real life. Will never be able to put it in writing. That happened to me a few months ago.

    • That’s simply fantastic, Mary! I am so happy that this post corroborates with your personal experience. Thanks for sharing and glad you like this fiction πŸ™‚

  8. You know Shilpa, at times when someone leaves us, they take along with them a majority of our own self. To gather all that again and to start living needs one to invest time in one’s self.
