It does no matter how much sorrow life is presenting us with, but
people like Nick Vujicic are able to become an inspiration!
Thank you Nick and be blessed!
The unpredictable, and unbelievable CAN happen as you can view in the following video.
In the video called “Touched by an Angel” you can see that angels do exist 🙂

The Ten Commandments of Leadership
By Chris Widener
A poem hangs on the wall at Mother Teresa’s orphanage in India. For all who are called to lead, it is a great reminder of what we should do:
1. People are illogical, unreasonable and self-centered (including me). Love them anyway.
2. If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Do good anyway.
3. If you are successful, you win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway.
4. The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
5. Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable. Be honest and frank anyway.
6. The biggest people with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the littlest people with the littlest ideas. Think big anyway.
7. People favor underdogs, but follow only top dogs. Fight for a few underdogs anyway.
8. What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. Build anyway.
9. People really need help, but may attack you if you do help them. Help them anyway.
10. Give the world the best you have and you will get kicked in the teeth. Give the best you have anyway.

“When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.”
– Paulo Coelho
I haven’t been posting lately, and before I knew a month has past between my last post and this one. My cancer is progressing and I have metastases now also in the lymph nodes between my lungs and in my right lung. Do I accept my fate? Of course not! Do I intend to get better? Well, yes, of course I do! If there is a way to get better WITHOUT surgery, and radiation and chemo – I will find it! And screw destiny…
