Today's Inspiration: "How I got burned" By Kenny Dougie

Kenny as a kid

So I woke up this morning, walked to the mirror and saw a big zit on my face, felt really bad because this is something I've been battling with for long... Growing up as a child with a very sensitive skin, I was nicknamed black & white because of the several black spots I had on my face and body... This bothered me a lot (story for another day). Watching this video, I feel I've been so ungrateful for the life given to me. 
Below is a video of Kenny Dougie, who was only 3 when he got a life changing experience. 
3-year-old Kenny was watching TV in his sitting room when an unknown person threw a fire through the window, on seeing the whole house was wreathed in flames, Kenny's grandad had no option but to walk him through the fire, unfortunately Kenny's grandad died. 
Imagine Kenny appreciating life still looking like this how much more me that has just a pimple to deal with, this made me realise I've been so ungrateful & it gives me every reason to appreciate life no matter how bad it seems.

So far, Kenny has had over 100 surgeries.. he's graduated high school & now in college... awesome right? He's just a great role model to so many people out there, one of the bravest people I've ever seen. What amazes me is his confidence to make youtube videos, most people would have hidden their faces and probably stayed  indoors for the rest of their lives.  
Lesson learnt, times aren't as tough as they could be... appreciate the life you are given and never complain, because if someone is breathing then they are living, and that's a beautiful thing!
