I had a truly horrific day. The highlight of my day was lunch…. In school! Yeah, It was that bad! Anyway! I woke up pretty early for church, had a bath while blasting my music and feeling super jolly in my “purrrty dress”! I had no idea at the end of the day I’d feel so terrible! It was first Sunday back at school and church was awesome! After service I got back to dorm, changed to casual clothes and headed to the cafeteria for lunch :D. I had just seen some of my friends for the first time since resumption so we exchanged pleasantries, talked a little and went our separate ways. After lunch I headed back to dorm to sleep. Obviously this half of my day was good, I haven’t gotten to the upsetting part yet.
I had a minor issue with a friend that caused a huge pain in my heart… (It’s too personal to share) but I felt really bad! As if that wasn’t bad enough, my phone kept hooking and saying “sim card rejected” and if you know me at all, you’ll know I’m addicted to my phone (not proud). All day I tried downloading an e-book for one of my courses and it was taking so long then at 99% it would stop and say “insufficient network coverage”… at 99% percent oh! *Sigh* At this point you can imagine my frustration! I just wanted to cry and go home to my mummy!
I lay down on my bed, almost crying. I know these issues are tiny! If they had happened at different times, I probably wouldn’t have felt the impact but they all happened at once! It seemed like everything else would soon go wrong. At this point anything anyone said wasn’t funny. I kept restarting my phone, trying to calm my friend down, restarting the download all to no avail. So I lay down, took many deep breaths and started to think. There are people who had a worse day than me, people who live under bridges and have to wake up early to sell stuff on the street and suffer everyday of their life! Girls that are being raped and are carrying a bastard in them or lost their fathers… people who do not have enough money to go to school or even pay for a meal! There are people who have a lot less than I do and they still survive without making a fuss about it! So why was I acting spoilt instead of being grateful for what I have? At least I’m being educated so what if the Wi-Fi is bad? At least I have a phone some people can’t afford nokia 3310! At least I have friends to fight with; fights will just make us stronger!
Your life may not be perfect but its definitely better than someone else’, instead of fussing try to help someone, build someone, encourage someone!!! Where you are isn’t where you want to be but it cannot be where you used to be. Spend everyday on earth like it’s your last continually thanking God for his faithfulness because indeed he has been faithful!
