Life is unfair: sometimes bad things happen to people without a reason. There is nothing you can do about it, except for changing your own attitude. Life can be extremely hard and difficult, but in the end you’re the only one who can change the situation you’re in.
I’ve been wanting to tell you about my friend Lucas and his new blog for a little while now. Lucas is the most energetic and lively person I’ve ever met. I know him as a person who embraces the life that was given to him, meeting as many new people and travelling as much as he could. He is devoted to sports, physical health and helping others in any possible way.
He was playing basketball in December 2011 when he got into an unlucky accident. Because of this he severely injured his spinal cord and was unable to move. Just like that.
Since then he has been working incredibly hard to get better and to be able to move again. With amazing willpower and determination he has gotten himself so far that he is able to walk again. I can’t imagine the pain he must’ve had, and still has, to endure. I truly admire his attitude towards life. From one day to another he was unable to move and had to focus fulltime on recovering, and still he looks at life as if the glass is half full.
So nowadays when the going gets tough, I like to think of Lucas. He inspires me to stop complaining, work harder every day and look at the positive things in life.
Since a couple of weeks he has been blogging about his recovery over here, posting (almost) daily. Check it out, his story is truly inspiring.
