“Don’t fear failure so much that you refuse to try new things. The saddest summary of a life contains three descriptions: could have, might have, and should have. ” ~LouisE. Boone The saddest moment in my life was losing my dearest grandfather. I miss him every day. It brings me more pain that I wasn’t able to be around my family during that tough time. And although I know he’s in a better place, I still hope that we had more time together with him. He has been an inspiration to me. I feel lucky to have been his grandson.
Thinking about him after all these years still saddens me because I would have loved if he got to share all some of my fondest memories and to witness the love we all still have as a family. Wherever he is right now, I thank him for bringing happiness into my life and even he is not with me here I believe he is still watching over me and our family. To some people, life is hard, cruel and merciless. These set of people see life as punishment throughout their entire lives. They therefore resigned themselves to fate, believing all is finished. To them, nothing that they do can ever be good.
They take delight in committing crimes and maiming others to avenge their ill-fortune. They lost every sense of direction and most times, some of them go as far as committing suicide, just to escape the injustice life has meted out to them. But there are those who see life as a challenge, a channel of discovery and innovation, a prospect for success and a gateway to wealth. To them life is sweet, colorful and kind. No matter the situation these people find themselves, they keep pressing on, believing in a cause, a cause to succeed and get the most out of life. No wonder an adage says, “Where there is life, there is hope. ”
