Story of the week: Fighting to Defy the Odds
I came across an article that a friend of mine had posted on his Facebook timeline this afternoon which really touched me.
The story is about a young woman who has been paralysed and doctors believe it is a result of her contracting the MRSA infection that attacked her spine, after using a makeup brush she borrowed from a friend. You can read the full article here: http://kickerdaily.com/woman-paralyzed-mrsa-infection-borrowed-makeup-brush/
What caught my attention while reading this story was a paragraph that reads; “despite what happened, Gilchrist remains positive about her life, believing that with the proper attitude not to give up, she will be able to use her legs again.”
I admire her positive attitude towards what is a very tragic situation. Instead of looking at the negative impact this has had on her life, she is placing all her belief and determination in learning how to walk again. She believes that one day she will and do to.
I believe that what the mind can conceive and when we choose to believe, it can and will come to pass, if we don’t give up! It will by no means be easy, but no matter how long the journey takes, the goal will be reached when we choose to persist and keep our eyes on what we want, come what may!
