I'm Having More Fun Being Locked In

Last Update: April 03, 2020

Who says that being locked in is no fun. I believe that it all depends on your mindset.

I joined Wealthy Affiliate in August 2019, since that time I have spent at least one year in hospital, confined to a bad and unable to move. I just got out of hospital after having my fourth heart attack. At the same time I came down with MRSA, had a seizure, did not know where I was or who I was. The more that I recovered the more that I realized that I could train myself to have fun. I'm having more fun being locked in than I did when I was sick.

I don't need to force myself to write articles, it has become something that I want to do. At first I was depressed and angry. How could this happen to me? I was trying to be the best person that I could be, I didn't deserve this. I have heard the saying many many times that we are not going to be given something that we could not handle. I can handle pain and loneliness, I can handle depression. When these things come into my life I smile because I know that it's time to work on another article and doing this will get me that much closer to my goals.

Yes, I can have fun in the face of adversity. Absolutely nobody can take that away from me. Practice makes perfect and I am being given lots of opportunities to practice. If you are depressed from being locked in, be grateful that you have been given another opportunity to work on your business. Yes my friends, you can have a lot of fun being locked up or locked in. If this does not work for you try making out a gratitude list. It was only a couple of weeks ago that I thought I was going to die. I thank God today and I am still around to help others. Let's have fun, help others, and travel down the road to happy destiny. I thank you for allowing me to write this little blog. Happy dreams.

Hi, Donnie.
I love your positive attitude.
And, thank you for your encouragement.
Hope your health condition has been improved a lot.
I will keep my fingers crossed for you.

I think there is a typo in your article.
I guess August 2019 should be changed to August 2018.
Thank you.

The face of adversity is different at every turn we take in life and if we can look at it and have gratitude in our hearts because we have been given another chance and another and another. You are here because your time isn't up yet you still have a lot to accomplish so you may as well you have fun doing it.

Hi Donnie! Good to see you again! I'm glad that you're improving. How is your wife is doing? I couldn't agree more that we can always find things to be grateful for if we "choose" to do so. We can allow adversity to make us bitter, angry, and depressed, or we can grab it by the tail, learn all we can from it, and determine to improve our lives. It sounds like you've chosen to make the most of the adversity you've had. Way to go! :)

Stay healthy and enjoy your writing. You guys have been in my prayers.

Donnie, that really resonates with me man. I feel depressed too but I think that starting this business will give me a lifeline to take my mind off the s**t that goes on in my life, as it did for you. Wish you the best and keep up the good work!
