We’ve got to live…

Ever felt so out of balance that it seemed as if the entire universe was conspiring against you? Probably.

The idea is that you should try to live. No matter what. But how do we do that? Especially when one loses hope and faith and courage. When all one does is exist.

The important thing to remember is that we are here to fight the odds and beat them. Life’s a struggle because that’s the only way to learn, to grow, to evolve.

We become better by fighting against all that is trying to destroy us.

In the end, it’s entirely up to us. How we live, why…

One of those fancy statistics says about 95-96% of what defines us cannot be controlled by us. Where we are born, when, to what parents, or the education we receive from those parents. The events around us.

What is the remaining 4%, what difference does it make?

Well, as meaningless as some of you might consider it, those 4% are our thoughts and our actions.

We do not get to decide what happens, but we get to decide what we think about it and how we act.

If this thoughts scares you a bit, good. Because it should. Because it means that you understand how little you can do, but how important it is that you do it.

Otherwise…

First of all, I’d like to thank Robert for his donation.

About $300 are needed for the next dentist’s appointment. One that I badly need to get to. One that is extremely important for my health.

I need your help. I can’t do it without your help.

If you’d like to help me out, you can donate any amount you see fit here.

Any amount matters. Any amount at all.
