A farmer’s son got injured while plowing the field one day. He was left unable to walk…All the neighbors felt so sorry for their unfortunate stroke of the farmer had. How would they keep the farm?
Shortly after the accident, the military enforced a draft. All of the towns’ sons that were of age were required to go to war.
Months later they returned home in body bags. Years passed, and the farmer’s son recovered the use of his legs. He became the town mayor, possibly because he was one of the few existing candidates. He lived a very successful life.
The point is… We should all try to look at circumstances as opportunities. We can make the best of them. Sometimes what appears as a loss is actually a gain. If you flip the sword and change your perspective, you can live a more meaningful life.
We are all going to face obstacles. What matters is how we handle them. Do we choose to enjoy every day of life regardless of the circumstances? Or do we throw the days away that bring us discomfort?
I know what I’m gonna do.
