When I think of Cody, who plays sport in spite of having two prosthetic legs, it helps me remember all the positive things in my life as well as the good things lying ahead. This is far healthier than dwelling on tragedies. It’s okay to be sad sometimes, but making a new life and looking forward, is what counts.
The following poem IF by Rudyard Kipling, says it all:
If you can dream but not make dreams your master,
If you can think and not make thoughts your aim,
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
and treat those two imposters just the same …
… yours is the earth and everything that’s in it.
