I know our lives are not a dream, but we can make it better if we want to.
At times, we may choose to carry on pain, fear, self-doubt, and sometimes fill our days with: “I can’t, I did that, I suck on this, I tried, I wish, I don’t have, or maybe one day … blah, blah, blah. Why we, the smartest living creatures on this planet consciously choose to do that?
Why is Walking a Great Way to Help Solve the Mystery of Lupus?
In a couple of weeks, I will join my first Lupus Walk event. Not that I had never heard about them, nor been invited to join one, I was just not ready to participate.
When I say, I was not ready to participate, I mean I could not face to myself and others my condition. For years, I pretended it was not happening, thinking if I just ignored and continued to live as everything would go back to normal.
Lupus brings a sense of embarrassment, impotence, which is a widespread feeling in lupies. But why? Why does this condition come with such self-prejudice and self-judgment over something we cannot control?
Earlier this week, a friend of mine told me the history of a cancer survivor. While that young woman has been through a huge amount of emotional and physical challenges, she has been able to live her life with optimism, while inspiring others.
That made me think about why some people are just like that. Which qualities do they carry that can turn their odds around, and make things work?
I listed 10, but maybe there are many more. Nevertheless, how wonderful would be to follow this girl’s lead and carry every life hurdles like a champion?
