That's what I learned from our latest client, Werner, who the team and I headed out to meet in Somerset West.
It was a difficult, humbling and enlightening experience with a man who's keeping his chin up thanks to a trusting and effective partnership with FMI and, more importantly, his indomitable spirit. Since a debilitating illness has left him immobile, his life has drastically changed. He can no longer play music as he once so loved to do, and his house also has had to undergo adjustments to offer him greater independence.
But it's not all bad. The truth is that Werner is an incredibly warm person who's not only smart but is also amazingly inspiring. With a life partner, a loving sister and mother on his side, he's got a great support system.
I left with a lump in my throat, and a lesson that you should always remain grateful for the good in your life.
Yours in life done better
