Keeping Things in Perspective

Yesterday as I was driving up a slight incline to the parking ramp at Georgia State, consumed in my thoughts of how tough law school is, how confusing it could be sometimes, I noticed on the sidewalk on this incline a boy who in every aspect looked normal, except he was in a wheelchair. The sight would make anyone reflect..... it was a slight incline and this boy was trying so hard, so very hard to scale it with his arms pushing the wheelchair as hard as he could. I saw the look of frustration in his face as the wheelchair kept sliding back and he would have to start over. I wanted to get out and help him, but I was afraid to offend his ego. Anyways, he did finally make it up.... but it just reminded me of a very important fact.

Worrying about "the meaning of life" is really a luxury that we can have. Not this boy perhaps, but so many people are struggling to keep themselves and their families from dying of starvation. Worries such as mine come from a generation where we are trying so very hard to not eat so very much........ Ofcourse we should consider the meaning and try to find our purpose..

But it shouldn't consume us.....

Perspective is a crucial and very vital key to staying balanced..
