Imagine becoming temporarily blind due to migraines which are the most common causes of temporary vision loss. Migraines may cause blind spots or you may feel like you are seeing flashing lights. Migraines cause sudden blindness in both eyes. Giant cell arteritis is another cause of temporary blindness in one eye.
You have gone shopping and have two heavy bags full of goods. When you come out of the supermarket your head hurts. You start walking towards your car in the carpark, but as you approach it your migraine worsens. By the time you get to the car and pull out the key an almighty pain fills your head and flashing lights occur.
You’re stuck in front of your car; helpless, worried sick, and not knowing what to do. You cannot see the way home. You start to rack your brain for solutions. You think about calling the hospital emergency service, but you are unsure of the number and you can’t check. You use speed dial to call family members, but no one answers. You run out of options, so resort to leaving the car there, and walking home.
Not being able to see is a challenge to overcome, but guess what: you pluck up the courage to try. If you don’t try in life then you will never know how far you can go; if you can surpass boundaries, and chisel out the high-quality life you are entitled to then success can be achieved. It creates fulfillment while satisfaction to succeed along life’s trail.
You are scared because you’ve never done it before. But guess what: you realize life is full of obstacles that need to be taken on to arrive at a destination. Deep down you know you can do it, and it doesn’t matter how big the obstacle is. You are a person of action who doesn’t sit there thinking about all the hurdles that need to be surpassed, but rather a proactive person who goes after dreams!
Prof. Carl Boniface
