A great attitude becomes a great day which becomes a great month which becomes a great year which becomes a great life.
MY TAKE: I realized that a great life does not equate to a life with lots of money only. A lot of rich people are not happy. It is how a life is well-lived by having that attitude of positivity and hope.
Everyone should smile. Life really isn’t that serious. We make it hard. The sun rises. The sun sets. We just tend to complicate the process.
MY TAKE: I really cannot understand why people choose to be indifferent which is mostly a result of jealousy or insecurity. Instead of finding a good reason to smile by doing something productive for their lives, they focus on others who have nicer clothes, or shoes, better paying jobs, or big houses, and fault-find to find satisfaction for themselves. Utterly ridiculous and pitiful.
Your life is your message to the world. Make sure it is inspiring. – Unknown
MY TAKE : One commenter thought that inspiration we get from disability is a kind of objectification. I disagree. It is rather a strong motivational thing to show the world that despite the disability, life goes on. My husband is a physically challenged man. After the stroke, the situation changed. He had to stay at home with the kids (with my MIL, too) and I had to go to work. He raised pigs to augment the family expenses. This he did while taking care of the children. I took part of the ‘taking care’ after an 8-hour office work. There were a lot of stories to tell. To wrap it up, he was such an inspiration that was also an example not to give up despite the trials.
