Sometimes I look at the sky and see how grand this really universe is. We are so insignificant yet we are the ones experiencing everything around us. How lucky are we? Yet we spend our days stuck in our social classes with mundane lives, actions and thoughts. We have the ability to thoroughly flourish and explore our potential through everything this world has to offer.
Manifesting infinite light.
This world should be our sanctuary not our prison.
We are celestial beings, the universe is experiencing itself through our senses, a perception of reality that is only unique to us. How special is that? 🌎✨🔮💫👁
“I wrecked July 25, 1998. I was paralyzed from my neck down for three and a half months before I could even get a twitch … When I wrecked, I got hit in the head with a duck. I was riding my Harley Davidson. I looked down and I was doing 100 k. Then when I looked up, all I could do was hold on tight because a duck blew out of the reeds, missed my wind screen and bounced off my melon. So that was like Saturday night at the cowboy bar — just an explosion of lights and pain and down in the ditch I went. There I was laying on my face with my arms crossed underneath me and paralyzed from my neck down. I had to hang out there for forty minutes until I was found … From there, it’s been onward and upward. I’ve had lots of support from family and friends, no one would let me give up … One door closes, another one opens, that’s all.”
“My daughters were eleven and fourteen. With my WalkAide, I was able to walk my youngest daughter down the aisle. That was in 2011 I think.”
“This WalkAide gave me my life back. I work with Spinal Cord Injury Alberta and I also do consulting in the oil field … with Spinal Cord Injury Alberta, I can walk people through the process of catastrophic injuries. To be able to show people that there’s light at the end of the tunnel and that there’s work for them. It’s easy for them to relate to me because I know what it’s like to feel trapped and not have feeling from my neck down. Spinal Cord Injury Alberta is funded by the United Way. They’ve done so much for me and my family.” @myunitedway @scialberta #yeg#facesofyeg#edmonton#photooftheday#portrait#alberta#humansof#unitedway#facesofunitedway#humansofedmonton
