One thing we’re sure about life is that it is constantly changing. People go through many changes in life whether by choice or not. There are positive and negative changes that affect our lives. It can happen in a moment or gradually over time. The most important thing about change is whether you like it or not, you have to deal with it. My life changed in one moment, but I have learned to move forward. On Christmas 2010, I was excited to get the Wii gaming console. As a result, I ended up playing my games for hours that day.

For my own sake and my family’s sake, I do everything I can to stay healthy. I am aware that things will happen even if you prepare for the worst. Life is full of unexpected events, but what matters is moving
