This I Believe
Looking On The Positive Side of Things
I believe in looking on the positive side of things. Looking on the positive side of things could be very difficult at times.
The reason I choose to believe in this because there is one situation that I went through where I had to look on the positive side of things. The situation I went through was my family being told that my grandma would not make it through her surgery therefore we would never see her again. So during her kidney transplant surgery my mom is keeping my brother, dad , and I updated. During the surgery the nurse came out to tell my grandpa, my mom, and her siblings that my grandma is not expected to make it through her surgery. Then my mom called my dad to give us the update. So then we left our house immediately to go to the hospital. Once we got to the hospital my entire family was brought down. But my grandpa said if we all look on the positive side and stay positive things could turn back around. And guess what? He was correct! We all did our best to stay positive and my grandma fought her way through that surgery and made it! I couldn't of been more happy in my life!
But then about a year later my grandma's health went back down hill and she started struggling again when she went back into the hospital, I reminded myself that no matter what happens I must remain positive. The doctors then found out that she had a disease in her leg and foot. It took the doctors lots of time to figure out that is what was wrong. She underwent three separate amputations. So she was in and out of the hospital for almost a year. The first time she went and they found that infection in her toe , so they amputated that. Then they found it spread even more to her leg they then amputated half of her leg. That lasted about a month but she started to realize it was continuing to spread. So they decided to amputate the rest of her leg to her hip. During this time our family was very unsure of what was happening. When we saw our grandma really struggling, it really made everyone stressed but once again my family stuck together and encourage one another to be positive. But now it's been about two years since this and she has a prosthetic leg and is up and walking like her normal self!
Ever since this has happened I have always believed in looking on the positive side of things and that if you do that it could really change your life and make it better. I also always try my hardest to help others be positive as well.
I just always try to encourage others to stay positive even when things may not be so great. The positive side of life could help someone out a lot.
"This is something I don't understand: why do people not act there age?" I feel like people don't understand how old they are. Some examples are when kids my age yell and scream like little kids. It is very annoying and I don't think they understand that they are 14 years old. If people choose to go crazy like little kids right now. I feel like they are never going to grow up. If people are going to choose to never grow up they will not succeed in life. When you get older you are taking on more and more responsibilities each day. People are not going to like someone who is not mature and super annoying. People should learn that your age really does matter and you should know what it means. When you go to apply for a job and grow up you have to know what is going on.
The Year That was... and The Year That will be
2016 was not the best year of my life but for sure wasn't the worst . Even though everyone is saying that was the worst year it still didn't change my mind. For me I feel like I haven't really had the worst year of my life because I know life will get so much harder. Everyone has horrible days here and there but how could someone have an entire year oh horribleness?
In 2017 I'm going to strive to make this one of the best years of my life. I will try to do that by not letting what other people think affect me. I will also stay healthy and always stay positive. If I follow through with all of this 2017 could be the best year of my entire life.
Ode to my family:
I love them so much, they care for me more than anyone, even when I may annoy them a lot.
Every single day they are there even though they may be supper annoying I still love them, and they still love me.
There "good mornings", "how was your day" , and "goodnights" those are the words that show they care for me , no matter if my parents or I are mad at each other they still ask me those questions, there never ending love for me is amazing, no matter what happens I know I can always count on them.
