Annie Boreson: An Inspiration


Unlike always this post is not about my feelings or my opinions about anything. Yesterday I came across a blog and this post of mine is dedicated to that blogger- Annie Boreson.

Anne is fighting from cancer. I specifically say “fighting” and not “suffering”. The reason behind this specification of word is her spirit of living – actually living a life and not just breathing and not crying or blaming God for the obstacles she’s having in her life.

Everybody is having problems in life, some of us have small ones whereas some of us have a bit bigger ones. But how many us fight with the problems?? How many of us look around and notice the people who have greater pains and sufferings and still they have a breath taking smile on there faces??? Very few.

The reason behind writing this post is simple. You got to love your life unconditionally. You need to find that will to live it every moment. When I asked Annie- “What inspires you???” She gave a wonderful answer.

“As far as inspiration goes, I find it in other people. I think we all find inspiration in each other. I may have a bad day…but then someone does something nice and it pulls me up. People and their kindness inspire me.” She finds her inspiration by looking around herself and finding those people who are suffering more than her but still don’t loose hope and spirit.

So, everyone of YOU reading this, get up! Pull up your socks. You have had enough of crying about your problems. Now it’s time to kick them away, such that they would never return back. Respect your life. Live it. Help other people in living it. Inspire people- get inspired. All of us look at our wound and cry for it! Do something different. Make fun of it. Embarrass your pain such that it will disappear!!

Here is a poem which I completely dedicate to Anne and all the people who have that Wonderful spirit to live life and the guts to chase your dreams even when path is not smooth!

Like a kid restarts to make his sand castle

When cruel waves wash it away

Like an ant keeps on trying

After it has fallen from a tree time and again

Like a farmer starts to plough harder

When his farm is destroyed by the heavy rain

Like when a mother nurtures a baby alone

When its father walks away.

Like a bird continues to look for food

When its first flight goes in vain

Like a nurse remains awake all night

Just to see her sick patient healthy again

Like a tree keeps on growing

When its branches are chopped

Like when a bird lays again

When her first egg was dropped.

Like a soldier holds on to hope

When the others think that the battle is lost

Like a kid stumbles often, he still crawls

He finally learns to walk, he doesn’t stop

Like “Annie” who inspires the world through her blogs

Though in pain, she manages to laugh

Like one of the best mothers in the world

On whom her children are proud of!

So enough of crying, and get done with sadness.

What are you making fuss of??

Look beyond yourself, everyone’s life is bizarre

So why to look at the sky, be your own blazing sun, own shooting star

Because you can’t just sit and caress your scar

Because life is a long journey, and you have to go very far!
