The Missing “I_”

A few years ago, I had to write a paper for a course I attended at the University and my keyboard broke. One key was missing, my cat Spike has taken it out with his paw. 

Instead of being upset about the broken keyboard, I decided to accept it as a game. I wrote the paper without using the key for “I_” and to my surprise, I received an “A” for my efforts. 

Whenever, what surrounds me seems broken, I remember the paper I wrote without “I_” as proof that I can adapt and persevere despite not having the proper resources. 

Today, I chose to focus on what is in front of me and do my best even when it seems hard. I remember that pain proceeds growth and adversity can be its own reward.
