What happens when your heart gets broken

So, this is the question…. What happens to you if your heart shatters? And gets broken by the people you love the most? You live, you live with all your strength and courage, and smile in the future that belongs to you.  People who are meant to be with you will be with you; people who loves you will love you still. You, can only do what’s good for you. You, can only try your best to live for your future. 

Doing my part…

In this world and its economy, what significant role do we play? What is my part? What is your part? 

Often, the question people ask becomes “why do we even want to play a part?” And we give ourselves the answer: “let someone else take care of it. ” At least, that was my thought when I was an able-bodied person living a carefree life in this world.  

The funniest thing happened, after my car accident and became a quadriplegic, as life became ever more difficult, I found myself wanting to play a role, any role in fact, that would help the world move to a better future.

Why did that happen? Why the sudden shift? Did my disability suddenly gave me inspiration to be righteciou? Did I suddenly have more time and need to fill my time with something? These are all valid questions and sometimes questions people are not comfortable in asking. It took me sometime to find the answer for myself. The sudden shift in my intellectual understanding of the world is not the answer you would have guessed. The change occurred when my life is no longer “simple “, the lost of my independence has created a warmhole effect that suddenly sucked all the joy and happiness out of life as I knew it, but this lost also created a  clearer picture of the world for me as well as it allowed me the opportunity to view life from a different angle. When you view the world from an unpleasant angle you begin to see the world as harsh, you feel the pain and sees only cloudy sky…but, if you view the world differently? You will begin to see the world for its potential, you begin to search deep and hard for that tiny bit of goodness that is still left, you begin to wanting more in life and sometimes be part of the change that will bring more light into the world.

Let’s view the world differently, together, let’s see the potential and how we can be the change in creating a better future for all of us.

In this world and its economy, what significant role do we play? Let me play my part! Will you play your part? 

When it snows…

As the sun tries to hide It’s face behind the clouds,

As the wind slowly kisses every inch of the earth,

As the world bracing itself to be covered up,

My heart feels heavy embracing the moment for when it snows…

When it snows…. I think of you,

The beautiful white flakes of your hairs,

The loneliness the world feels without you being near,

The chilling cold of losing you,

My heart feels heavy embracing the moment for when it snows…

When it snows…. I think of you,

The beautiful snow flake could not compare to your smiles,

The loneliness of the world that you used to cheer up,

The chilling cold your embrace used to warm up,

My heart feels lightens and  looking for the moment for when it snows…

As the sun showed her smiles from behind the clouds,

As the wind brush by  my cheeks with warm kisses,

As the world awakes to spring growth,

My heart feels excited and looking for the moment for when it snows…

Mmmm, toast

Mmmm, waking up to the smell of a delicious piece of toast, with melted butter, freshly made eggs and crispy sausages… As saliva drips down the corner of your mouth, as you fight your urge to bathe yourself in this delicious aroma instead of an actual shower, secretly you know… You are about to have a great day.

Mmmm, another toast everyone should enjoy as much as the breakfast toast is Toastmaster. Yes, you may not be aware of this yet, but the sweet inspirational words and challenge creates an addictive aroma as much as that breakfast toast with a great exception… Toastmaster sets you up for much more than the day, it sets you up for life.

Thank You!

On a cold winter morning, awoken by a cold shiver, Julia struggled to grab a blanket to cover herself but failed. A creepy “thump, thump” sound came from outside her room and her door slowly opened a crack… “Wham” the door opened wide and a firmiliar face appeared… “Wake up sunshine!!” Sandra said aloud with a big smile on her face. Noticed rightaway Julia shivering, without hesitation, she grabbed the blanket and covered her up.

It’s 3:45am on a cold snowy winter morning, Sandra has traveled for 20 minutes to come to Julia’s house to help her to get up and get ready for her work day.

This is a true story, it didn’t happen to a friend’s friend of mine, this is my story. My name is not Julia nor is my assistant ‘s name Sandra, but this relationship is real. My assistant comes to help me at this crazy hour every week day in-order for me to get to work by 7:00am. Living with a disability is hard, but she makes it bearable.

Many people living with disability rely on reliable assistants like “Sandra” to help them to live a full life and become a productive member of the society.

On behalf of all the people living with a disability, to the dedicated reliable assistants… Thank you!
