Doctor Stephen Hawking lived a majority of his life watching his health and his life ebb away. Yet, he still found it in his heart to encourage others. From his confinement in a body that wouldn’t work anymore, he allowed his mind to do great things. He pictured and found important things in outer space such as black holes and Hawking Radiation. He took more trips in his mind than most of us will ever do with our bodies.
My point is this.
If a man, trapped in the prison of a body wracked by ALS can have such a positive attitude about life, who are we to sit around and whine about things not always going our way?
His advice is sound.
Pay more attention to the awesome world about us and the universe than our own problems.
Live in a curious mindset and awe at what you find.
Stop pushing yourself and others to be something they are not or to do things they cannot. Instead, find your and other’s strengths and build on those.
And just like Stephen Hawking never gave up, even when his body was dying, neither should we.
After all, you never know what good thing might be around the next corner.
