What I’m trying to say is that you can’t let your hopes down because something bad happened. You can’t be demotivated because you think that it won’t work out.
Everyone experiences minor demotivation from time to time, that doesn’t mean we should give up. I firmly believe that you should continue, whatever it is that you desire, even if you have a few set backs, even if there are more than a few.
To answer your question, yes, life does surprise. It’ll surprise you when you least expect it.
When I went to India in 2008, I went to a lot of doctors who said that I’ll walk, I’ll run, and I’ll dance. That gave me great hope and I was optimistic.
In 2010, after doing countless treatments, procedures, and astrological gimmicks, I went to a doctor who told me that I wouldn’t walk and that I should give up.
Along with that, I had a crappy boyfriend whose actions gave me suicidal thoughts. I hated myself and I began hating everyone around me. It felt as if I was stuck in a deep well with no way of getting out. I felt abandoned.
A couple of days after I went to the doctor, that my mom’s friend of recommended. Her son is also wheelchair bound and she recommended that I try stem cells out. A doctor just a few kilometers away was providing the treatment.
We went to the doctor, and he said that I have more of a chance to walk than what all the other doctors initially estimated. He guaranteed that I’d walk. I was appalled because I haven’t ever heard of a doctor speak with so much confidence.
After two stem cell procedures and intense physical therapy, I’m able to contract the muscles in my legs, which seemed impossible at first.
What I aim to tell you with this story is that you shouldn’t give up, no matter how cloudy or dark things may seem to you. If you believe in yourself and if you believe in what you’re aiming to achieve or do, things will work out.
An optimistic attitude, hard work, and belief is needed in order to achieve things that may seem difficult or downright crazy.
Life will surprise you when you’ve run out of options. You’ll realize it soon enough.
