Why do we worry so much about our lives when so many others are way less fortunate than we are? I feel grateful for my eye sight, that I can see the beauty around me, to be able to read, to help me to see what I paint and to appraciate what I see others create and to never take it for granted. I feel grateful for my hearing, my overall good health, to have my arms and legs, my feet that I can walk, my internal organs in good working order, and my hands, that I can type these words.
Here is a guy without any arms Arms and Legs but what an inspiration he is. Next time you feel life is getting you down, think of this guy and feel grateful for all you have. There are many people with disabilities, physical, mental, emotional or psychological and yet I see some ACC members who rip into the souls of other members just to "proove" that they are right, and act as though the world has come to an end. Imagine not being able to type a word because you dont have any hands, or not being able to see, to hear, to move at all. This guy has a joyfull spirit, and he cant walk, let alone write a blog in the likes of a website like this one but he is a happy man because he has a good heart despite his disabilities. So thats why I feel grateful to be able to punch these keys on this laptop because I have a healthy pair of hands, good eye sight, a reasonably good brain and I am grateful for all that and more besides. I feel its important to feel gratitude for the things we often take for granted, such as our health and our bodily functions, when so many others simply dont have the same blessings that we do. Be joyfull and be grateful for all you have, because you dont even know how long you will have it for, life is short enough as it is and as we get older, it gets shorter.. as the song goes, "the end is not as far as the start... please stay a child, somewhere in your heart".
