Life can be challenging. It can sometimes be filled with obstacles that make you lose hope. But with all the downs, there are plenty of ups.
That’s exactly what Patrick Corr learned from his blind cat named Stevie. In a video uploaded to YouTube this week, Corr shares the many lessons of strength and perseverance his cat Stevie has taught him.
The video shows footage of Carr and Stevie hiking at a nearby mountain. Stevie is on a leash (with the occasional moments of him roaming freely — which is not recommended, BTW), and despite not being able to see the path in front of him, he presses on.
Throughout the video, there are scenes of Stevie enjoying the world around him, without any indication that his disability slows him down. These scenes are cut with lessons Carr has learned thanks to his feline friend, lesson such as: “When you fall, you have to pick yourself up.”
Much like Corr, we can all learn a lot from Stevie. Life can be incredibly beautiful, even on the days when all we see is darkness.
