When unfortunate circumstances hit you, it either breaks/destroys you or redefines/strengthens you.
For Mr Collins Odinaka who lives in Onitsha, the breath of life and being able to still hold his kids was far more precious and important than him losing an arm and a leg.
He shared pictures of himself with his three beautiful children and wife, as he rejoiced he cheated the tragic accident that would have made his children fatherless.
For the sake of the innocent children, he is happy he didn’t lose his life.
That is what I call strength in difficult circumstances. Collins’ case is really touching because despite the unexpected condition he found himself in, he is thankful and appreciative to God for making him survive a fatal accident which could have killed him last year.
Collins’ situation is a lesson to us all. One, we must be strong enough to be grateful in what ever circumstances we found ourselves. Just anything can happen that will change us at the twinkle of an eye and only our inner strength and strong will can keep us going.
And also, another big lesson is that we must live for something and surround ourselves with people who will never abandon us no matter the situation.
Collins lived for his family and in his trying moments he wasn’t abandoned.
What you feed your mind is what shapes you. So get into the habit of feeding your mind with positive elements and thoughts because it might be helpful when you find yourself in any circumstances you never envisaged.
