Q - QUAGMIRE - Lessons from #NatureRepository

Today with the 17th letter Q in an #AtoZChallenge with our #NatureRepository series we have come up with the word Quagmire.
Yes Quagmire is nature’s creation; it is a soft wet area of land mostly filled with mud and one can get stuck in to it by walking on to it.

If someone is stuck into Quagmire, it becomes very difficult to come out of it on its own as the mud pushes body downwards. Person makes brisk movements to come out of it in hurry but cannot make it unless there is a pull from outside. We know getting stuck in a quagmire or also can be called as swamp is a dangerous situation, but one can surely come out of it.

Why am I talking about this here at all? Because life also throws us in a situations like quagmire and we also in a panic state start doing acts without thinking which results in more crisis situation. When one is in disaster situation it is obvious that our mind and heart does acts and takes decisions mindlessly. What we need is a person who can make us calm by their thoughts so that we can think of a solution and wait for the right pull from outside so that we can give our 100% to come out the situations.

So, now we know what to be done in Quagmire like situations
1.   Stop panicking
2.   Find for a person or resource that can pull us out
3.   Staying calm and analyzing situations
4.   With help of outer help give your best to come out

Life has myriad of situations and few are like Quagmire one’s, don’t be afraid of them, be prepared for such situations before hand. And who knows you are one of the outer resources someone stuck in quagmire is looking for.
