Aaah! That was probably your first reaction when you saw the picture, and then you read the caption: "My friend Mark was born without legs. He has a good sense of humor about it." When I saw this I thought it was amazing. Whenever we face a difficult situation, we seek to complain about it to everyone. Or, not wanting anyone to know, we lament about it; crying all alone in our rooms. And these are usually problems not nearly as big as those many other people have… Everyday we face challenges, they vary from stressing out about a midterm exam (just finished them today, soooo relieved! :), or dealing with your parents' divorce. Yet, everyday, we still have everything we could want, and sometimes we take them for granted because it's just become a part of our life, and don't realize how privileged we are. A home, a family, friends, food, a good education, and I could go on and on. And then when we have a small problem, it becomes a huge deal. Now, take someone like Mark, who was born without legs. Everyday he deals with this challenge, but has learned how to deal with it, and have some fun. I think it's amazing how someone with a difficulty like this can face it, and not let it become a problem, but rather have a good sense of humor about the situation. What do you think about this? I believe that if you're stuck in an uncomfortable situation, you might as well make the best of it and take it lightly, or else matters are only going to get worse and you'll spend your life miserable. Have you ever been in a difficult situation and made the best of it?
