All people have issues in life. Everyone has their own problems to deal with. Sometimes we get the short end of the stick we just have to learn how to deal with it. How many times have we had thoughts of giving up when the challenges seem insurmountable? We have all had those times when giving up seemed like the only option. Or so we thought. Every problem has a solution, we just have to be positive that whatever it is it will pass.
Take the case of New Yorker Jay Lavery. Jay is a farmer who has a serious back problem and he had to undergo a series of operations including a spinal fusion and discectomy – both are major surgeries, both are painful.
Farmer Jay’s predicament may have affected another person in a negative way. This condition may have caused depression and low self-esteem to some but not to Jay Lavery. He found an outlet to make his situation bearable. He chose yoga and dancing. And the latter made him an internet sensation when he decided to immortalize his dance moves on video! Dancing to Sia’s ‘Cheap Thrills’ while doing chores at the barn, 10 million people have watched and it was shared 89,000 times. Quite an achievement for someone who just wanted to have a little exercise and keep warm to ease the pain of his back.
Jay Lavery is a reminder that yeah sometimes life sucks but it doesn’t mean we have to wallow on self pity and sadness and keep ourselves from having a good time. If life throws you lemons, heck! home made lemonade is really good. We only live once, live it happy, live it proud!
