So, the first Motivational Monday post of 2014. I did think about doing one about new year resolution’s, but it’s a bit too cliched really. So I thought I’d just stick to my usual way of finding something inspiring and sharing it with you.
This is a fantastic video.
Pascale’s dreams of surfing were crushed after a car accident left her paralysed. However, with the help of her son’s friend (who himself comes across as such a wonderful, good person. I bet his mother is crazily proud of him) and some duct tape, she soon realised her dreams.
“I was always talking about [how] good it would be to go surfing and one day, a friend of my son said ‘you know what, I think we could tape you onto my back and take you out there,'” she said.
Pascale’s story is hugely motivating. Her life must be extremely hard at times, yet she seems to still live it with such gusto and joy.
Best quote from this video:
….for them to follow their own dream, and concentrate on the positive in life
