Life is full of unfortunate events, and some of us are not born with a silver spoon in our mouths. Our perspective about what we have makes a huge difference.
This short film reminds me to be resilient in every circumstance.
“If I regarded my life from the point of view of the pessimist, I should be undone. I should seek in vain for the light that does not visit my eyes and the music that does not ring in my ears. I should beg night and day and never be satisfied. I should sit apart in awful solitude, a prey to fear and despair. But since I consider it a duty to myself and to others to be happy, I escape a misery worse than any physical deprivation.”
– Helen Keller
Despite being rendered deaf and blind at 18 months, Helen Keller has become one of the most well-known women in history. She overcame her disabilities thanks to the help of her teacher and friend, Anne Sullivan. During her lifetime, Helen became an author, lecturer, advocate, Socialist, and source of inspiration for many. (Source)
What we do with what we have creates a big impact with how our lives would turn out to be. So no matter where you are right now in your life, don’t fret.
If you are determined enough and willing to work hard, you can create the life that you want for yourself.
