“If you’re reading this… Congratulations, you’re alive. If that’s not something to smile about, then I don’t know what is.”– Chad Sugg
Yeah had to begin with that quote because its perfect for this situation we are in worldwide with the pandemic. Think about it, alot of people are dying but you are alive. No matter what the situation is on your side, the fact that you are alive alone should be able to put a smile on your face. A symbol of strength and hope for tomorrow.
No matter how bad your situation is, smile and be thankful because someone somewhere is having it worse than you are. Have you ever thought about that?.
Right now as we complain to be tired of staying home, staying indoors, someone somewhere is stuck in a foreign place longing and waiting to go back home. A father somewhere, who is also a doctor or a nurse is sleeping in a hotel room afraid to go back home to his newborn baby he has never seen so as to keep her safe from himself, from the virus if he has it.
A child somewhere has lost both his/her parents and has been reduced to being an orphan and now the future looks dim with no one to care for them or comfort them as everyone is grieving about someone they’ve lost in this pandemic. Where can they run to or shelter themselves for safety? How is life going to be when all this cools down?
The homeless people stuck in the streets with nowhere to go or call home and are Longing for that place you call home that you are tired of being in. They have no one to ask for food as restaurants are closed and no one is outside to give them even just that $1 they used to get when everything was a little bit “normal” for us.
You’re tired or being stuck for months with your spouse or family members? Someone somewhere has lost all of them to the pandemic and is left asking himself or herself questions like “why was he the only one left? Why didn’t he go too?” The despair and loneliness is overwhelming.
If you are with family or stuck with your spouse, take advantage of this time and make memories together. You don’t know what tomorrow holds. If you have a roof over your head , a place to call home , be grateful and persevere.
Generally if you are alive and healthy today, it is a reason to smile and be grateful for there’s hope for you for tomorrow!
