PROLOGUE

I came across this fine bit of writing, which I could closely relate to in those dark days in -. Diana’s words describe my feelings better than I could myself… so here they are…

“People speak glibly about life changing moments. Some truly qualify. You propose marriage and are accepted. You hear, ‘You’re hired’ or ‘You’re fired’ and your future shifts instantly. The doctor says ‘malignant’ (or something else life-changing) and everything is different. But anyone who has ever lived through it will tell you: It is profoundly shattering to learn, in one instant, that everything you thought was true about a loved one (my words: or perhaps your own life) is actually a lie. (Your entire world is turned upside down – what you thought about yourself, and what gave meaning to your life). The world rocks on its axis; when it is…

Mending the broken pieces

Rosie Blog

I have been looking for something, something that can make me happy. In 2016 i met a guy, we fell inlove instantly and i said to my self this is it, i have found something and i was happy. I was happy to be in a relationship, in a relationship with this guy but it was not that something that i was logging for. When times goes by i realize i am broken, broken inside and all i need is to pick up the broken pieces and mend them together, it was tough for me though but i had too. Let me tell you, no one will make u happy if u are not happy yourself, i was sad so sad and i hurt people because i wanted to feel something.

Adaptive rock climber Craig deMartino

“THE JOURNALIST “… REVEALING AND INTERESTING "INTERVIEWS"

full_craig_6Craig deMartino was a professional rock climber who nearly lost his life in an accident 17 years ago, when he was dropped 30 metres from a rock ledge – breaking almost every bone in his body.  18 months later, he decided to amputate his right leg below the knee in order to be able to return to climbing. Craig has notched up a number of records – including becoming the first amputee ascent of Yosemite’s El Capitan in under 24 hours. But his focus now is very much on inspiring others with physical disabilities to get active again and to live with their trauma in a different way. He’s written a book about his journey called After the Fall, and is the subject of a recent short film called Craig’s Reaction.
