Life has offered me six most valuable gifts that I carry with me wherever I go. Because of these gifts, I can say, I am proud to have lived this life and proud of everything I have accomplished.
Every scar shows the quality of strength. When you see someone with scars, know that they have an amazing story to share. His or her strength to keep moving forward and overcome what gave them the scars is of great value to themself and to everyone he or she comes in contact with. It takes strength to know they can get through anything.
2. A Sad Face
Every sad face shows the quality of compassion. It’s okay to be sad. One must always be true to themself in order to move past any situation. For those who have been sad, be proud! It is these experiences that you learn the heart of compassion and how to truly care for others. Treating people with kindness and utmost respect is an extremely valuable attribute.
3. A Broken Body
Every broken body shows the quality of perseverance. When a person wakes up every day and is reminded that their body is challenged in comparison to others, they keep moving forward. They smile, laugh, cry, love, and motivate themselves each and every day. The perseverance these amazing individuals posses is something worthy of admiration.
4. A Broken Heart
Every broken heart shows the quality of love. You can only truly love someone when you love yourself. This is the ultimate gift life offers and for many, it takes a lifetime to achieve. To look in the mirror, smile and think “You’re amazing. I love you!” — no matter where you have been or what you have done — is all the other qualities combined. When you do this, you give unconditional love to all. Truly a blessed person can say they have been hurt in their lifetime and therefore value and know love.
5. A Sad Story
Every sad story shows the quality of determination. When you feel sad and look at your memories with this difficult feeling, it is a challenge indeed. When you continue to move forward with grace and gratitude, you truly have the determination and what it takes to win. It is through these difficult times where individuals find that inner quality to keep going and never give up.
6. Every Experience — Good Or Bad
Every experience you have had or will have, gives the quality of wisdom. All experiences you have throughout your life give you the special gift of knowledge. Life is about choices based on this knowledge. With each passing day and with each glorious age, you gain the ability to be both a teacher and student. The wisdom is to know what to do with it to make a positive difference. Those people who make a positive difference every day are truly wise indeed.
Strength, Compassion, Perseverance, Love, Determination, and Wisdom are all a reflection of one word: Life.
Celebrate your life! I respect you for doing the very best you can. For that, you are truly amazing!
