Ananda took her first steps, but she doesn’t know how lucky she is to be able to take her first steps. Most disabled children don’t get to take those steps.
She’ll only be able to realize this when she’ll see disabled children later in life.
This made me realize: I’m also probably lucky on so many levels from my fellow humans, but I never know how much lucky I am, just like how Ananda doesn’t know how lucky she is to take her first steps.
Just thinking about this, I’m feeling so happy that I’m alive right now. I can breathe, I can see, I can hear, I can taste, I can walk, I can run, I can jump, I can feel, I can ……………. Being alive is actually pretty cool.
And still, on how many level am I lucky, and I don’t realize?
