Life is the only thing that can make you go WTF!
And even after you said that,.. make you want to put some extra Exclamation marks after that.
It really doesn't matter who you are, what you are, who you think you are, or who you really are. Life will always find a way to surprise you in good or bad ways. Because life is just that.. surprising.
You think you know everything? Bang, life slaps you in the face with something you didn't know.
You think life is boring, shabam!, life turns upside down, lets see how you handle yourself now.
I hate surprises.
Almost as much as I love them.
Besides surprises, life also seems to have a sense of humor, mainly irony though.
Love marathon running? you will loose a limb.
Love looking a beautiful paintings, you go blind..
You know, and we have all seen the buttered end of the toast hit the floor. Irony. Life loves it.
Personally I always say, "life only knows one kind of humor and it is called Irony".
So if you would summarize life, it would be somewhat of an ironic tale filled with surprises.
Now that doesn't sound too bad, does it?
Well, then lets summarize our lives... Right now, I am a healthy 41 year old with a wife and young child. Sounds good right?
Now add the fact that I don't have a job, no source of income, huge hospital bills because my firstborn was 9 weeks early, my wife has severe headaches and has now gone blind, also has to be hospitalized and we still have no clue what is wrong with her.
Life has thrown us some punches.
Right now, the only thing keeping me upright in the ring is the fact that I have a small child whom I'll have to take care of, who depends on me. Who I promised to be there for.
I really don't know how long I can keep this up, but I will try. I will fight for her and those I love. I will face another day, come up with ideas to make another months rent, I will fight, I will fight for another day. I will fight till the bitter, or the bitter sweet end. I will fight, because I am alive and I have a choice. I choose my family.
I have a wife and child who love me, life can throw me any punch and it won't hurt me, I will go on, we will go on, life goes on.
Don't complain, there is always someone out there that has it worse then you.
Lets compare notes in the comments below, shall we? What are you still alive for today? What keeps you going?
