‘Investing in the future’ is the theme for 2014 World Malaria Day; and investing in innovation could be the key to beating the disease. To mark World Malaria Day, and show our support for ‘The Big Push‘, we’ve put together this infographic to highlight the global health burden of malaria, what is happening now to fight the disease and the innovative concepts and technology that could help drive our future efforts to combating it.
PAIN is a part of life and life’s pain has many shapes and sizes.
There’s the ‘cold feet’ pain of moving on ‒ graduating, taking the next step, walking away from the familiar and into the unknown.
There’s the sharp growing pains of trial and error, of failing as you learn the best way forward!
There’s the immense pain of realizing that everything you thought you knew wasn’t true, or that everything you had planned for falls through!
There is the pain of success, when you actually get what you had hoped for, but then realize that it’s not quite what you had envisioned!
There are the pains you feel when you realize that you are standing in a moment of sweet perfection, a priceless instant of achievement or moment of happiness which you know cannot possibly last!
But then, pain is actually a good thing. It means you’re breathing and trying and interacting with the endless possibilities in this world. Pain is for the living only; it’s worth fully accepting and dealing with while you still have a chance!
Being hurt or in pain is something you may not stop from happening, but you cannot afford to sink into misery.
However, a positive attitude, a word of prayer and a little action can change that pain/hurt to peace and long lasting happiness!
