One of the tragedies in life is losing a part of your body or not being able to make use of any part of your limbs. But this should not provoke you to give up on life. Southside Group of Companies, a Pharmacy in Houston, Texas, lists down some powerful quotes to enlighten people with mobility problems that life is still worth living.
1. You are not defined by your condition.
“Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have: life itself.”
2. Only you can control your life.
“I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.”
3. Serve as an inspiration to others.
“I’m not in the best shape, but I want to prove to myself I can do something that seems insurmountable and inspire others by showing them no matter where they are in the fitness goals, they can do it too.”
4. Take your time.
“Right now I am trying to be in a place of calm, a place where I can chill out and then handle the chaos of life better. You don’t just get it overnight; you have to work at it. It’s a daily struggle.
5. Life goes on.
“In three words, I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life. It goes on.”
6. Concentrate on the things you are capable of.
“My advice to other disabled people would be, concentrate on things your disability doesn’t prevent you doing well, and don’t regret the things it interferes with. Don’t be disabled in spirit as well as physically.”
7. Find your balance.
“Life is all about balance. Since I have only one leg, I understand that well.”
8. Do not see your condition as a hindrance.
“I do not have a disability, I have a gift! Others may see it as a disability, but I see it as a challenge. This challenge is a gift because I have to become stronger to get around it, and smarter to figure out how to use it; others should be so lucky.”
―Shane E. Bryan
9. Do not let your insecurity prevail.
“People presume my disability has to do with being an amputee, but that’s not the case; our insecurities are our disabilities, and I struggle with those as does everyone.”
10. Be positive.
“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.”
