With as much as I have known about disabilities, and the more and more I read about people facing disability-related challenges, I am now even more convinced about how the state of our mind affects our lives. Pick up any success story. The crux is the decision to not give up, to look at the brighter side of things, and to make the most of whatever you have.
Sounds easier to say than do? It definitely is. But then, there are no options. Most people who are facing a disability, have either survived an accident or have it by birth. In either case, it is hard to live with. It can continue to hurt you for the rest of your life if you don't know how to handle it.
I have been through the phase where the mind keeps asking God "Why me?"
But God answers only in the form of future blessings. While stumbling through the challenges of my life, I have realized that God is not fair. But I have no complaints, because he is kind. He does not give everything equally to everyone ,but he does give everyone something special.
We all have a tendency to pity ourselves, and feel that the world owes us more. It is quite natural and it comes up as a strong emotion when something unexpected happens in our life. The best way to get through the mental stress is to let it go. If it is a matter of the past (even though it has affected your life entirely), you have to get over it.
There are many beautiful techniques I have learned to get over strong emotions and feel light. You can use them too. Once the past is gone, you can look at the bright light today and focus on what you have got, rather than what you lost. Once that transformation happens, life becomes easy.
Most of you will agree that more than the physical challenge, it is the mind that is stopping you from leading the life you want. The biggest strength that any human has is not in his body, but in his mind. All of these testimonies of successful people clearly illustrate this point.
Let us resolve today to have a thankful heart irrespective of what challenges we face in life.
