"Life shouldn't be looked at from one angle, there are many sides to life."I like to say when looking at those taller than me, "I am a short guy and you are a tall guy, I will grow. What will you do stretch?!
These two different concepts, growing and stretching, are in the end done to allow the same thing, growing. For me however he who is fully grown does not have the opportunity to grow. I who is short has the opportunity to grow, discover more... I might be privilleged enough to achieve more than he who has fully grown already.

When a thought came to my mind to help me overcome a barrier, I did not take it seriously. I waited for another to repeat the same thought to be really inspired by the thought.
"At the end of the day we must realise that we are all the same regardless of our differences. We all end up having the same thoughts in the end."
The day I was coming back from primary school I was completely torn apart. I was doing grade 4 at the time. I was torn apart because those close to me began to distance themselves from me. My friends. They began to distance themselves from me because of my new physical state. Eventually this lead me to thinking of running away from home and the ones who loved me the most, my grandmother and mother. This thought made me weap tears of pain. At the same time however a spark of hope was shinning deap down in my heart. I thought if I am to run away from home will the ones who reject me feel the most pain, no. My grandmother who told me not to go to church on the day I was involved in a car accident would be under immense pain.
Honestly speaking I am physically disabled today because of rebellion. I did not listen to my grandmother on the morning she said, "Ziggy do not go to church today. At the time my grandmother told me this I did not appreciate the fact that maybe she knows something bad will happen to me on that day coz you never know.

Practice vs. practiseIn the main varieties of English from outside North America, practice is the noun, and practise is the verb. For instance, we would say that a doctor with a private practice practises privately. There is no such distinction in American English, where practice is both a noun and a verb, and practise is not used at all. Canadian English also favors practise as the verb, but practice appears with relative frequency as a verb (about a third as often as practise). - Reference: http://grammarist.com/spelling/practice-practise/
"Running to run can't be just be another activity you choose to do daily, it has to be true lifestyle change. It has to be so elevated that it becomes part of your character."If you haven't achieved a true lifestyle change hope that you be alive tomorrow to change your imperfections. Life is not a garuntee.
