EVERYONE complains. There’s always someone complaining about something. For most people it’s what gets them through the day. It means that you can get it out of your system and get on with your life, which in most ways is totally okay. But for some of us, it would be a luxury for our biggest problem to be the fact that our coffee was too cold or we bought the wrong shade of foundation (and now look like an umpa lumpa haha). And I’m definitely not saying don’t complain about the little things. But you should NEVER take them for granted.
When I was 13, I got really sick. It ultimately has left me with a hell of a lot of health problems and I am also wheelchair dependent. [ you can learn more about it in my previous posts]
I have lost the ability to walk, keep food down, write, shower by myself, dress myself, control my own temperature etc. There were even days where I couldn’t even talk because I was in so much pain added in with other factors. I’m even tube fed through my bowel as I haven’t held food down in months . I was an athlete and I was always at a sports practice or working out, I was top of my class in most subjects and I was always looking for a new adventure. In a second it was all stripped away from me.
But, I’m forever grateful that I’m still breathing, talking, typing this. AND I even managed to get back into school and I even play wheelchair basketball (very badly, but I think that’s just me haha) As Stephen Hawking once said “HOWEVER BAD THINGS MAY SEEM, THERE IS ALWAYS SOMETHING YOU CAN DO AND SUCCEED AT. WHAT MATTERS IS THAT YOU DON’T GIVE UP”
So my message here is be grateful for whatever you have, even if right now it doesn’t seem like much, because it can all be taken away in a second and someone, somewhere is praying for what you have, even if right now you feel like it’s nothing. YES , it is definitely okay to feel lost, broken and like you have nothing sometimes BUT learn to look at the things you do have as oppose to the things you don’t.
Live your life. Love everyone, be kind, dance in the rain at 2am purely because you feel like it, laugh, Take risks, work hard and play even harder because we only get one chance to be alive and ALWAYS remember to love every valuable second of it.
