You've got a lot of choices. If getting out of bed in the morning is a chore and you're not smiling on a regular basis, try another choice.by Steven D. Woodhull
These words impressed me in particular as they coincide with my current situation. Several days ago, after an accident while walking in a woods with my dogs, I broke my right leg (ankle in fact) so badly that in a second my life turned upside down. From a very active person I was until that day, I am now constantly in bed, unfortuantelly in pain too, as the operated leg aches badly. Well, what a different perspective of life when each movement is like climbing Mont Everest, all the problems, concerns that were before accident seem to be nothing now. It is not that I was complaining much about life before the accident, yet now I have realized that I wasn't grateful enough for all I have, for all my life so far.
I know that every cloud has a silver lining and what happened to me is for my personal growth. Dealing with difificulties of ordinary activities, learning who is your true friend, I am listening carefully to my inner voice what it is going to tell me. Not being able to create photographs with my hands I have lots of time to create with my mind:)
If you are the one who suffer somehow, do remember 'every cloud ...":)
Sending warm thoughts and good energy to all in need.
