You Are Better Off than you think

You can always find things that are wrong, but really look at your life. Stop. And just look. You have it better than you think. 
There are people in this world who have to worry about where their next meal is coming from. 

Yes, there are situations that have to be overcome. Sometimes you need to work certain jobs to survive. But you have that opportunity. You have all your limbs. 

And if you don't have all these things, and are still creating and doing your thing, kudos to you! 

I respect you greatly. 

This post is for you. 

When I feel I can't go on, I think of those who really can't. 

I think of Stephen Hawking. 

First of all, he overcame the odds. According to doctors he should have been passed on long before he did. He survived the odds. 

This was a man who had no way to move, to speak. He could barely twitch a cheek to set off a sensor in his glasses to type to speak. He has an electronic wheelchair. 

point is this man overcame it all. 

He had help from someone who would watch him twitch until they found the right letter to make words to write books. 

He gave speeches through a cheek-typed electronic voice. 


And he didn't stop. 

Then I see someone who has an ache and they can't go on. 

Look, I'm not saying things don't throw you off. I know about things like that. I have back pain and migraines. Sometimes you can't create if you're tired, in pain etc. But you have to admit, if you want to make it in this game, you have to put in the effort, and then some more. 

Now get out there and do your thing. Whatever that may be.
