|Getting in the sled. Zoom, zoom!|
It is strange how things happen sometimes. I focused on getting out of this crappy government housing that I am currently in for months now, pretty much ever since the day I moved in. It is so unhealthy here. I focused on finding a healthy, affordable place to live and even got a much coveted section 8 voucher to help me out. I found an awesome place that is only 1.5 miles from my current apartment. I got accepted and submitted my deposit. I started packing already as I expect to move within the next 7 days. Then I got injured to the point where I can't walk without crutches making moving impossible. So what do I do? I could be angry and depressed about how life seems to be so unfair all of the time. I could be bitter about how every time I seem to catch a break something happens to ruin it all. I could do and feel these things but I don't. I actually feel pretty damn lucky. Lucky that I have no serious injury. Lucky that even though I have stage IV cancer I am well enough to go skiing in the first place. Lucky that even though I have been skiing and snowboarding since 1989 this was my first real injury and the first time I have ever needed the assistance of ski patrol. Now I am going to focus on how lucky I am that I will be able to have movers do all of the hard work for me.
Sometimes life gives you ups, sometimes it gives you downs. You can't have one without the other. How do you handle those? Do they make you grateful or bitter?
