The theme of my blog today is “Thankful”. Now I realize today isn’t October 8, 2012 (Canadian Thanksgiving) or November 22, 2012 (American Thanksgiving), nonetheless I am still thankful for everything. About three weeks ago I fractured my wrist and I know it’s a cliché but it has made me appreciate my surroundings more. With having a cast, there are definitely times I feel like I’m limited to doing routines in my daily life (dressing myself, showering, typing etc). However having a cast for the past three weeks and knowing that I’ll have it for around four more weeks, I’ve adjusted to doing certain things. Obviously having a fractured wrist is nothing compared to difficulties others face worldwide. I feel that it’s important that as individuals we stay grateful for things we have and not take anything/one for granted. It’s important that we make positives out of the negatives we experience, because we could be far worse off than we are. Learn from the situations you are put in and appreciate what you have instead of dwelling on what you don’t have.
On another note, in about HALF AN HOUR our class will find out which local NGO we have been placed with. My heart beat is pretty high. I’ve been reallllllly excited for this day
I shall keep all of you updated soon
