when you believeIf you have been following my blog you have most probably already read that a limping hamster has come into my life lately. In my past blogpost about my limping hamster, I identified certain lessons which this hamster was already teaching me.

Today my limping hamster is back with an amazing tale of success…another very important lesson that I have yet to learn!

Well, since my last hamster blogpost, we had purchased a male hamster so as to give our hamster some company. Things went crazy…she didn’t want anything to do with him. She surely created strong boundaries to keep him away.

As mentioned in my previous blogpost, the new cage has tubes that go over the cage. Uptil today our male hamster has been going up the tubes one way, but refusing to go down from the other end. On the other hand, our female limping hamster refused to even try to get into the tubes altogether…

Until today…

Today they both got into the tube…first the male and then her for the very first time. The male hamster looked down the drop-down end of the tubes, yawned and stopped right there. So I thought hmmm let me try to shove a small carrot piece by the tube’s end to make him want to come down for it (cos yep they adore carrots!).

What happened amazed me and the kids!

when you believeHe looked down but gave up, didn’t even try to come down for it. Suddenly though, our little limper started sniffing. Being behind the male hamster didn’t stop her! She fought her way in front of him and started sliding down the drop-down tubes, all the while sliding her limping foot across the tube to slide down very slowly, all the while her eyes fixed on the carrot piece I was holding. Couple seconds and she was down, grabbed her reward with both her hands and started munching away happily!

Needless to say, our male hamster went back from where he had came from. He didn’t even want to try to slide down.

This story made me realise some things that I want to share with you…

Nothing is impossible, no matter how hard it may seem! If you keep your eyes fixed on the outcome that you are wishing for, nothing will hold you back! Limitations are setbacks only if you see them as setbacks! If there is will there is always a way!

Morality of the story: Never give up no matter what may be holding you back. And if you are looking to do something in the future but feel it is impossible, doesn’t mean it truly is impossible. Today you may see it as hard, tomorrow you may see it as possible, and the day after you may overcome your doubts and do it!

As usual, I am given a beautiful song by my guides that relates to this story…I will leave you with these lovely words with hopes that it touches your heart and plants hope and faith within you. You are amazing, you are a miracle!

“When You Believe” – Mariah Carey

Many nights we’ve prayed
With no proof anyone could hear
In our hearts a hopeful song
We barely understood
Now we are not afraid
Although we know there’s much to fear
We were moving mountains
Long before we knew we could[Chorus:]
There can be miracles
When you believe
Though hope is frail
It’s hard to kill
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve
When you believe
Somehow you will
You will when you believeIn this time of fear
When prayer so often proves in vain
Hope seemed like the summer birds
Too swiftly flown away
Yet now I’m standing here
My heart’s so full, I can’t explain
Seeking faith and speaking words
I never thought I’d say


They don’t always happen when you ask
And it’s easy to give in to your fears
But when you’re blinded by your pain
Can’t see your way clear through the rain
A small, but still, resilient voice
Says help is very near
