I hope you’re all doing well?
During this blog I wanted to take a moment to talk about who and what inspires me. I feel that this is an important subject to talk about. Even though some of us might think we have a strong mind set, it’s always good to have that person that gives us that little push when we need it, it’s usually someone who you look up to and gives you that little bit of belief and motivation.
I will start with what inspires me. To be honest that’s a pretty easy question for me to answer. Seeing people who face constant daily challenges, struggles and pain and still approaching life with a big smile on their face and living their life to the best of their capabilities, is what inspires me the most. In understand their struggles and how hard it is to sometimes get out of bed and face the day, so when you can do all of this and still smile then you to me are a true inspiration.
I received this lovely message the other day from somebody who was in a car accident five years ago:
Receiving messages like this on a daily basis, is what inspires me. Knowing what I’m doing and achieving In life, whilst battling Dystonia, is pretty cool and ensures me that my message is doing its work and getting out there.
Okay, onto the next question. WHO inspires me?? Would you say we have our own inspiration? Someone we look up to? Admire? Want to be like?
This might sound really cheesy and big headed but I would say I’m my own inspiration. I look at myself and I feel proud. I am proud of myself most of all for keeping a positive mind set, even through the hardest of days and gruelling treatments…
To me training through the pain that Dystonia causes…
I dont want to sound like I’m trying to blow smoke up my own arse but I look back over my last eight years the struggles and the dark times I’ve been through and I can’t believe the position how far I have come and what I have achieved. I am proud of myself and it feels good to say this.
I want to finish with the quote;
“Believe in yourself & you will be unstoppable.”
I hope you enjoyed the blog and feel free to leave a comment or question 😊
