When we come to this world, it’s our chance to live and live well. When we meet people, it’s our chance to know them and to make friends – to share part of our life with them, and to spend amazing moments with them, full of peace and love. It’s our chance to find a place in their heart, and to leave a positive impact on their lives.
In the different stages of life, the concept of “chance” varies. That’s what I realized through the passing of time and the changes in the stages of my life, even though I have only lived in this world for 20 years. What led me to realize this is seeing and hearing peoples’ stories and the different situations that have happened to me. I didn’t discover the value of things in this life as a “chance” until I experienced the feeling of losing things and people. I didn’t realize the value of health and life until I saw one of my relatives suffering from cancer, which ended in death. I then realized that it’s my chance to stay healthy and to chase every moment with happiness and kindness for the people around me, as much as I can.
It changed my perspective of thinking about life and what it contains. When I wasn’t doing well in a drawing class in university and my teacher told me that I might fail, I lost hope and I felt that I was a loser. But when I returned to my house and practiced hard, I succeeded. After that, I realized the value of working hard and using the chance of free time to invest in something worthwhile and something that means a lot to me.
There are so many chances, but those two situations had the biggest affect on me, and taught me lessons that will stay with me throughout my life. I know that you or other people may be faced with situations harder than I faced, but the important thing is to take every chance you can to make your life better. There’s always a dawn after darkness, so we must always take things easy and positive, turn sadness into happiness, and turn failure into success. I hope you all stay in peace through your journey in this life.
