W is for Willpower
My theme for this year’s Blogging from A to Z April Challenge is Marriage from A to Z in 55 Words. W is for Willpower in Marriage!
He saw her and his heart skipped a beat.
The world stopped for him and it was simply beautiful with just him and her.
Having her would disrupt his simple life.
Still his heart was in denial.
His head, however knew that he must turn down the sinfully rich brownie that was calling his name.
A Word to the Wise
Do what is right, not what is easy-Unknown
Thank you Danny for your inputs! Appreciate it a lot 🙂

When my father had two massive attacks doctors had totally lost hope. He was on a ventilátor for three days. But he survived and was alive for another year and a half. I believe that his will power was what gave him that extra time on earth.

Through a strong will power a person can achieve any thing,

Will power in marriage is an important thing! The will power not to get carried away by temptations, the will power to do what is needed for your spouse! Great going Shilpa! Last minute but done well as always!

I wish I had this will power 😀
Jokes apart, yes, any relationship thrives on will power 🙂 We need to have the will power to keep it going, despite the struggle. It is too easy to give up !

Lovely post that makes the reader smile and think!
“Do what is right, not what is easy” is what we have to practise to rid our nation of corruption.
This post applies to marriage, to all relationships and to life itself.

A very interesting way to convey a very important message. Good one, Shilpa!

Ha ha ha – love your twists as always:-) Thinking this looove story sailing up … but then… ya ok, can love that brownie too I guess:-) Good one:-)

hey that’s me right?!!! i would never turn down that sinfully rich chocolate brownie for anything in the world….even if it meant an extra 45 min on the treadmill the next day!! 🙂

Beautiful thought Shilpa!
I am glad that I have this element in me, it is so important.

That was sneaky! :O) My mind went in a totally different direction.
I’ve got to give some props to my MIL’s husband for his willpower. He was a US Marine in Viet Nam and got shot on his first tour-of-duty. He went back. That time, he tripped a landmine and it blew off both his legs (to the hip) and one of his arms. He came back, got two master’s degrees, raised a family, and STILL does more in a day than most people do in a week. And he’s one of the nicest men you will ever meet.

Nice one Shilpa. Willpower is indeed a hard one to cultivate. Enjoyed your fun twist.
April 26, 2014 3:20 pm|
Strongly believe “where there is a will,there is a way”.
April 26, 2014 3:25 pm|
I need a lot more will power. It is in short supply and not sure where to find more. ♥
April 26, 2014 3:32 pm|
so very true .. the more you use the more powerful it becomes … Will power can do wonders
April 26, 2014 4:28 pm|
Yummy.. I have been keeping away from Coke and Pepsi, its been 6 days now. I can so well relate with your post. Nice one 🙂

Working on developing this quality, shilpa:) Not just for marriage, will power can do wonders in self healing. My family elders have it in abundance, they are my inspiration. I and my husband both are working on developing it through meditation and yoga. hoping to join the club of people with ” immense will power” soon.
As always loved your 55er!

Choosing the right path in life, leads us to the fulfilled life, and that can only be done by strong will power…..very true
April 26, 2014 5:01 pm|
hehehe that’s a nice twist 🙂 and what an analogy 🙂 loved it
April 26, 2014 5:33 pm|
🙂 I am not normally fond of brownies, but I have the sudden urge to have one! What a cute 55, Shilpa!
April 26, 2014 5:55 pm|
A brownie is all I desire at the moment but I have to control my mind, I have the willpower to do so. Lovely twist in the end 🙂
April 26, 2014 6:10 pm|
I don’t have much will power when it comes to brownies, actually any food for that matter.
April 26, 2014 6:23 pm|
I know that I would be treated to a gem by Shilpa. My kinda story and loove it:)
April 26, 2014 6:33 pm|
Brownies! How can one resist brownies. Ok, I have no will-power. Maybe I would just exercise more to burn off the calories later 😉
April 26, 2014 9:10 pm|
The temptress is always a woman…or food!
April 26, 2014 9:20 pm|
Having Will Power surely makes marriages work when situations demand one to control what one wishes to do.
April 26, 2014 10:09 pm|
No matter what happens but this is the most important quality for almost every aspect of our life.
April 27, 2014 10:58 am|
Ok that is a wicked temptation, Shilpa 😉 W for wicked 😀
But, so fulfilling right? Sigh. I want a brownie now…
April 27, 2014 11:03 am|
I really wish I had a bit more willpower when it comes to brownies and strawberry milkshakes and red velvet cakes!! 😉
April 27, 2014 1:29 pm|
Strong will power is needed to stay married 😉
April 27, 2014 2:39 pm|
Good one …actually 🙂 And the quote about will power is too good 🙂
April 27, 2014 9:54 pm|
Ha! I was expecting something else. 🙂 A brownie would be hard for me to resist, but I do agree that will power is required to sustain a relationship. Well said!
April 27, 2014 10:47 pm|
There is nothing so wonderful as resisting the temptation to do/eat something. It helps one feel that the mind is in control. But, it does take time and practice and patience 😀
April 27, 2014 11:59 pm|
Willpower is like a muscle – so loved it. Very well said.
April 28, 2014 12:20 pm|
Oooh I cannot break the hearts of rich chocolate brownie cakes that call to me lovingly
April 28, 2014 10:21 pm|
Loved the way you conveyed the importance of will power Shilpa, the quotes at the end of the 55er are spot on, but like all exercises, exercising your will power is hard, it is easier to give in 😛
May 2, 2014 11:54 am|
I’m too good with will-power only if it’s not food on the plate. 😛
