Life, it’s All About Your Perspective
I just wanted to share wise words from one of my oldest, and greatest friends. Sometimes I feel like I’m not doing enough to make a difference in the lives of others, but she makes me feel like I truly am making an impact. We all can find happiness and make an impact.
“You do things with your life, Samanta, just not what you expected in terms of normalcy. The thing with having less energy is that you invest it in only in things you truly need to keep going, because you can’t afford to otherwise. Other people end up working getting married and having kids before they realize what they want to do as opposed to what they have to.
You are helping people by conveying your life through pictures and showing that you are only a short matter of your circumstances, and 99.99999% is choice.
I talk about you a lot … Not in a pity sense at all… But more in a wow this girl is so strong, she reminds me of sticking to what’s important and makes me happy and alive, because otherwise we are just walking zombies complaining about bullshit that drains us of everything. You are so incredible with how you manage your mind and perspective, it requires more than a strong will. You remind me that all life is a matter of choices through everything. How you choose to view things is the most important of all. And you know what’s funny? You are one of the most happiest people I know, which is funny because people with all the circumstances in their favour find more things to complain about than you do. You remind me to be happy, so don’t ever worry about whether or not you make a difference to help others because you do through your blog.”
In the words of Viktor Frankl from his life changing book, Man’s Search For Meaning, “Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way. When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.”
As a side note, I will be reviewing this book in an upcoming blog and share with you how it changed my life when I thought there was no hope.
