You know that one person, who is always lively and all fun? Always available for the needs of others? always giving and cheerful, providing a shoulder to cry on when you need?
Everything seems to be going well with them, right? and then you have the opportunity to take a closer look into their life, or they accord you the privilege to catch a little glimpse of some the things they deal with.
I was given that opportunity today, and all I could say is wow. Like this person gives so much of themselves, it amazing that they have to deal with all that and it does not get them down. Even now the thought of it, still makes me so emotional.
And all this, is not as a result of any choice they have personally made.
For someone like me, I feel like I don’t deal well with bad situations and would probably become a snail that never leaves it shell. This person just blew my mind, and has unlocked a whole new level of respect from me. Not that it matters anyway.
It made me think so much about perspective and that we have a choice to choose what we focus on. Because at the end of the day, we all have issues and we react differently to them. This person made me to realize that I could either choose to focus on the bad things, or the good things no matter how little they may seem. Or to somehow find that good in the bad situation.
At the end of the day, whatever I choose to focus on, either the positives or negatives, will determine the quality of life I would lead.
Also, I have been receiving random messages from people, whose lives were affected by my mum. It gladdens my heart. I wonder what people will say of me when I am gone. Hopefully, its not so bad.
Overall, I had a good day, one I won’t be forgetting in a hurry.
