Life is a treasure

Life is short which is why you really have to treasure it and do what ever you can to achieve your dreams.

It was a normal day for me today, I did my business which meant I had to go to school and finish my coursework. It was like a normal school day except I had been doing ICT for the whole day. Can you imagine; I had to go to School on my Easter Holiday break. Fun, fun! If you hadn’t noticed I was being sarcastic. So anyway, I got home and did some English revision which didn’t finish till about 8.45pm. I was quite proud of my self actually so I decided to award my self with a Meryl Streep movie.

I began watching ‘Lions for Lambs’ and let me tell you something, it’s not a movie that a teenager will easily understand. It’s a challenge. As I was watching it, my mum calls me from the other room (living room). I went to see what she wanted so I came. A shocking picture appears on TV, and I’m not being dramatic here… It really was shocking and wasn’t a pleasant sight. The programme was called ‘Extraordinary people’ and it’s about this family that’s got this horrible trauma or something. And it really was horrible. I don’t really know what it’s called but I can promise you, it’s not a disease that can just vanish from having surgery. They had big, medium, large sized bubble shaped things stuck to their body. It’s not just two or three of them. They were lots, like a gazillion of them. This man was basically covered in them. I haven’t watched the programme from the very beginning so I don’t really know the whole story, that’s why I can’t really be specific enough. But, what captivated me about having seen a bit of the programme and seeing those people suffer was that… it really made me think about how lucky some of us are in life. I mean, I already am thankful for what I have and come to think of it- how lucky I am to have such wonderful and loving people in my life.

I’m thankful for what I have, who I have with me and what I own. Although, I admit, that sometimes I can be an ungrateful person. No one’s perfect, so cut those people some slack if they did something wrong or they might have displeased you. You can’t expect them to be bionic woman or man. A lotta’ people have made mistakes in their life and will probably keep making mistakes. This is why you have to think twice about your choices. Other people say: ‘your heart is never wrong’. But is that entirely true? Let me ask you this… how do you know? (Feel free to leave me a message if you know the answer to my question)

After that programme (extraordinary people), I was thinking how they’d kill for a normal life, whereas other people who have what you call a ‘normal life’ just doesn’t give a damn and waste it on pointless things. You can probably think of the reasons. Do you see what I mean? I’m probably talking gibberish to some of you, but to those who get me… please pass the message across and tell the other people to be more thankful of what they freaking have.
