I have a true story to share about a dying patient. She is only 15 years old who has been diagnosed with a Stage 4 cancer. This girl's plight and willpower to live on, has inspired me to write this blog post. I was so moved and really touched to see her determination.
The NGO's admin called my wife who has been a long time volunteer and informed her about this young patient who is unable to attend school anymore. Her condition has deteriorated and walking unaided is almost impossible. She missed her school and all her friends so badly each day that prompted her mother to seek help from any teachers who could give their time and coach her darling daughter with home schooling. My wife is a very busy person now compared to me but she simply could not say no. Yesterday, she went to the patient's home and her heart sank to the floor on seeing the smiling young girl who is so frail and breathing heavily with whizzing sound through the tubes hooked to a machine on the floor. Who would not cry and weep at her painful sight?
This child's health may be very weak and sickly but her heart and mind is still strong with determination to study until she graduates from university. Her mood and spirits swung back on knowing that she could now study at the comforts of her small flat. The happiness and positive mind is always essential to help many terminally ill patients recover besides taking medication and chemotherapy treatments. I really hope that she will recover as she has so many years of bright future ahead.
We are always swarmed by all our daily chores and working routines until we often forgot ourselves. Sometimes we just led our lives aimlessly and meaninglessly by living each day without any directions. We become out of focus and lost our mindfulness to deal with problems and pain. When the tragedy and disasters stuck, one might be jolted up to sense and point fingers besides uttering hurtful words. These problems are often just temporary like tides in the ocean. We humans have short memory and will end up going back into square one leading a mundane life.
I myself used to complain and compared with the other wealthier and more successful friends. This unhealthy thoughts will bring no goals and results but miseries if I don't start moving legs to work towards a goal in life. Ask yourself deeply. What is the only wish that you have in this life? Just focus on that one wish everyday and you will soon arrive at your destiny someday. I have learnt to stop comparing with others as there will be no ending to it and it is happier to be contented with what we have.
Our fate is always in our own hands. We created our own fate and only we alone can change our own fate for the better or for the worse.
I must learn to be contented with my life always. We should live happily and add excitement to spice up our lives and our loved ones too.
HAPPY WEEKEND TO YOU & SMALL KUCING!
