Will Power #AtoZChallenge @AprilA2Z

My theme for this year’s Blogging from A to Z April Challenge is Cultivating Happiness. Today, W is for Will Power.


55 Fiction

His heart skipped a beat.

He couldn’t get his fill of looking.

He knew it was not right, it could not be.

Head held low and moving on would be best.

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

The will of man is his happiness

Increase your capacity to set goals and then move towards achieving them. Improving your self-discipline will also boost your self-esteem which leads to satisfaction and happiness.

  1. Good for him. Nicely demonstrated the will power!

    I’d not have that will power for a chocolate brownie. 🙂 I might be able to walk past jalebis or laddoos, even a non-chocolate pastry, but it’d be very very difficult to walk past a chocolate brownie 😀

    • Yeah, it takes a lot to practice restrain when there’s something like chocolate brownie in front of you 🙂

    • Thank you, Genevive, glad you liked this post. Yes, I have trouble resisting sweets too! *sigh*

  2. Chocolate brownies have a way of jumping into my hand and mouth before I can say no .. will power, what’s that?
    Thank you Shilpa for looking after all of us in the A-Z!!!!

    • Agree with you completely, Sunila, for our success in life depends on us more than any other external factors and strong determination can take us places! Glad you liked this post! 🙂

  3. Hi Shilpa,
    It’s nice to make your acquaintance. I found your blog through Heather Gardner. This is my first time doing the challenge and I wanted to thank all of you who helped make it a success. Love your theme and especially today’s. Sheer willpower has been the thing that kept me going many times through the years. Thanks for sharing such an inspirational post.

    • Hey Sheila. Good to meet you here. Glad you enjoyed this challenge. Thanks a lot, am happy that you liked the theme and today’s post! Your experience and (I have experienced it too) proved that courage, will-power and confidence in our abilities help us scale great heights. Thank you for sharing your thought 🙂

    • You can eat all that and much more… age is by your side… it’s people like us who have to look the other way 🙁
      Thanks, Mithila. Glad you liked this 55er 🙂

    • Cheating sometimes is ok… but my sometimes becomes most of the time. *Sigh*
      Thanks Asha. Glad you liked this one 🙂

  4. these days my “won’t” power has been winning over my will power! So much has gone inside me during the holidays that I will need eternity to work it off!

    • Holidays are meant to be enjoyed. I am sure you will be able to knock off all the extras real soon 🙂
