Sometimes I get lost thinking how things could’ve been different, but not in the way you might think.
Yes, spinal-cord injury is hard. But like so many other things in all our lives, it is just one of a myriad of past experiences that I live with in the present and doesn’t have to stop me from flourishing in the future.

How can we build our resilience? Well, I know how I try to maintain mine. Might work for you too.
Sometimes the best parts of you can only be seen by those who love you. Don’t shut them out, You’ll be surprised what they have to show you.
Your inner strength is hardest to see when you most need it. But don’t doubt yourself, it’s there.

Happiness, like most good things, doesn’t come easy. It takes work and resilience and is ours for the taking.
