I’m already 86 years old, darling. Living to me at the moment is to do the things i love to do. I love walking. So no matter how many times did I fall down, I will keep walking. The desire of wanting to walk further outweigh the frustration causing by falling down.——–My Grandma
I went to visit my grandma this Sunday. I was reaally excited because I haven’t seen her for about half year. My mom told me that grandma has Parkinson’s disease so often the time grandma might fell down when she’s trying to walk.
Some information about Parkinson’s disease: This disease will affect the nerve cells inside brain. Common Parkinson’s disease symptom include muscle rigidity, which is what my grandma has. So she tries to walk at least 15 minutes everyday so as to prevent the rigidity from getting more serious. Some other common symptoms are change in speech or gait, having tremors, et cetera.
So we went to a park together. Grandma was walking with her crutches supporting. I slightly hold her arms just in case.
After 5 minutes, I noticed that grandma’s energy became less. She became unsteady and tended to fell down. So I asked her “Grandma, do you want to take a rest? We can do this tomorrow.”
“No I’m alright. We can continue.” said grandma.
“But I don’t want you to get injured, grandma.” I said.
“Thank you Darling. But you know I’m 86 years old. Living to me at the moment is to do the things I love to do. I LOVE walking. So no matter how many times did I fall down, I will keep walking. The desire of wanting to walk further outweigh the frustration causing by falling down.” grandma responded.
I couldn’t say a word at the time because I’m so overwhelmed. This powerful mindset is applicable to everyone. Especially for those who has their dreams!
Along the path we are striving to achieve our goals, tons of obstacles will show up. What matters is how you’re going to face the obstacle. If you’re really sure the goal you’re working for connects to the path of where you are right now, then get through the obstacle.
I don’t care how you get through. Walk around the obstacle. Jump through the obstacle. Break through the obstacle is you like.
Is what you’re doing right now align with your dream goal? Is the failures happened to you recently caused by you were trying to make your plan work?
If the answers are yes, and you’re 1000%(yes 1000% no typo!) sure that this is your DREAM GOAL, then stand up, and move on again.
You’re amazing. Look what you’ve accomplished so far! You WILL achieve your goals if you keep moving forwards. Felling is nothing. Remember to fell forward !
You’ve already done so much. Give up and retreat are not the words in your dictionary. I’m sure you can do this. Please believe again that you can achieve your goal. No matter what you’re trying to accomplish. Think of the time you started this goal. Recall how ambitious, courageous, and passionate you were! Get her/him back! That is you, the unbreakable you.
Let’s not comprise and keep working towards our dreams !
