Y Me?

Standard

During his battle with AIDS, from the world over, he received letters from his fans, one of  which asked: “Why does God have to select you for such a bad disease”?

To this Arthur Ashe replied:

The world over — 50,000,000 children start playing tennis,

5,000,000 learn to play tennis,

500,000 learn professional tennis,

50,000 come to the circuit,

5,000 reach the grand slam,

50 reach Wimbledon,

4 to the semi-finals,

2 to the finals,  

When I was holding a cup I never asked God “Why me?”

And today in pain I should not be asking God, “Why me?”

An inspiring scene from Rocky Balboa

Worth a try, I think..

About G...

Evolving and revolving! Douglas Adams & Woody Allen are my soul mates from another era. My quirkiness is an eclectic mix of Jess (New Girl), Dharma and Carrie Bradshaw. Sharing my birthday with Paulo Coelho & Stephen Fry, i'm always reading a book and enjoy having engaging conversations about life and love. I take children, wit and play seriously, very seriously. I'm a renaissance soul who enjoys yoga, vodka with cranberry and doodling. Working in the field of Education and Story-telling, there are only two things i look forward to: Knowing myself and Everything that matters!
