More Than Your Circumstances

morethancircumstancesSo I absolutely love inspirational quotes, videos, etc. This means I will probably share a lot of my favorites with all of you. This is one of my new favorites. I was looking for some new quotes and as soon as I read this I started crying. People with chronic pain or people just recovering from surgery know that sometimes you can become wrapped up in feeling bad. You’re in pain, your jaw is messed up; or for others it could be you are in a one parent household, you don’t have a lot of money, you fell ostracized by your peers, etc. Any/all of these situations suck. They make life difficult, maybe seem impossible.

We have to remember that we ARE more than our circumstances. If I decided that chronic pain was all I was, all I could deal with, all I could do, I would be in a pretty bad place right now. Instead, I have a killer resume and am about to graduate with my associates degree. Instead, I have quite a few options when it comes to getting a job in the spring. Instead, I found a way out of my crappy, painful situation and actually have a life waiting for me on the other side. And there are many, many examples of people who worked their asses off despite their crappy situation and made sure that they made something of themselves. So next time you’re feeling particularly depressed because of whatever situation you’re in, remember that you have it in you to become more than your circumstances. I truly believe that if you work hard enough you can do anything you want. Another famous quote:”Just do it.”

Do you have a favorite example of someone who overcame a difficult situation? Are you dealing with a difficult situation now and could use some support? Comment below and I will be sure to respond.
