Man are made to be more fragile than glass, and yet they grow to be stronger than iron.
I’m a believer that when things happen, there’s no point in returning to the past to play the blame game. But rather to look forward and continue charting or recharting your paths.
We may not possess the miracle of avoiding catastrophe but we sure do have the capacity to meander around disabilities to thrive and survive.
Make amends with what we have today.
Make peace with what we’ve done yesterday.
But most importantly make do (plans) with what we’ll receive tomorrow.
Thankful always, in the grander scheme of things.
My family suffered a catastrophic accident last Tuesday morning, and it’s Wednesday night already. To be exact it was Mummy and Daddy, but in the grander scheme of things, it was an accident to everyone related. From the 2year old Baby Irfan that urgently needs a new babysitter now — ‘cos Mummy needs to look after herself now after her (thankfully) successful night surgery, to the close and distant family member that executed a change of plans to accomodate a visit. Then again, it was an epiphany in every sense of the word too.
In the grander scheme of things, I believe things will work itself out for the better. The way I look at it, the glass isn’t half empty right now, it’s half full. And everyone in the family are already making plans to fill it to the brim again.
