“The lack of a silver spoon has set you on a certain path, but you needn’t stay on it.” – Kingsman
Not every child is born with a silver spoon in their mouths. We have to make our lives work no matter how life starts out for us. A silver spoon scenario isn’t just a monetary thing, that if you’re born into a family who has money your life will work out. But it is being lucky enough to have parents who care and who are prepared to steer you on the right path.
Through my own documented childhood difficulties, I wasn’t born with a silver spoon. With the silver spoon, I would have been told about my disability, I would have also had the parental guidance to support me through my school and college years knowing about my disability. The opportunities for me to grow and thrive emotionally alongside my disability would have been there.
But it becomes a human failing, when we don’t stop to think about our lives and what we need to do to move forward. When we get it into our heads that we should wait to see what comes up, for something to happen; nothing can or will ever work out. The universe doesn’t work like that.
It’s true there may be certain events that trigger a thought process from us that helps us to seek our and change our path, like in my case, but generally it’s up to us to look to change, no one can do that for us.
If 2018 wasn’t your year, you now have another opportunity to approach 2019 with a new attitude. But this quote pretty much sums up 2019 for me. “The lack of a silver spoon, has set you on a certain path, but you needn’t stay on it.” It’s telling you it’s time to steer your own course.
