Reclaim your lost glory

#ATOZ Challenge Theme: Finding Myself - Living My Life

“I have been running for hours and I have lost track of time. All of a sudden I realise the land will end and I will end up jumping in a valley. I have no control and within a span of two to three seconds, the land beneath my feet has disappeared and all I see is a never ending valley.

In a second, umpteen thoughts make a cloud in my mind- I am failure, I am not what I was, will I ever be what I was before? I cannot fight my fears, I have lost the game to others, I have lost the glory that I had earned painstakingly. I will keep falling in this never ending deep valley.

And then I realise my hand has been firmly gripped by my samaritan, and the message comes, “Why are you scared? Haven’t I told you that nothing is lost yet? I keep coming in your dreams. I will never let you quit. You have me as your support. Go on. Explore to your hearts content.”

I am back on the land now and I see everywhere. I can see the samaritan going somewhere. I shout out loudly but my voice is unheard. And the samaritan disappears.

I now sit in vain thinking. Samaritan gone but his message clear. “I am always there to support you.” Words run in my mind continuously. Question arises- Will I be able to?”


“I am transported to another place. I am driving through a forest. My samaritan is sitting beside me again. “Yes, you can.” My samaritan says."


“I am swimming but I can’t. Samaritan comes again and says, “ Yes, you can.”.”


And then I wake up, sweaty and scary. What do these recurring dreams mean? The message is always the same-  Reclaim what you had!!

But my conscience doubts that. Will I get it? I have to maintain the crown on my head. How do I do it? And then the answer comes to me- follow your conscience. Success wasn’t achieved by many by following the crowd.

You wish to achieve something, regain the accolades that you had earned. You have paced those paths, why not tread again, with your Panache and zeal? Glory comes to those who run after their passions.

Listen to your Samaritan!


  1. Recurring dreams is a way for our subconscious to deal with reality - I get rid of them by writing them down (which sometimes turn into great stories). Great pic. Good luck with the rest of the AtoZchallenge.

  2. Dreams always gives lovely experience.

    Loved this one the way you narrated.
