The first step…

Life’s journey starts with that first step..

There are times when you meet or hear about people that metaphorically appear larger than life, and the only way to truly understand them is to ‘walk in there shoes’.

Every once in a while during our lifetime we come across people who, in one way or another, rise above all the rest of humanity. Weather through self sacrifice, or shear determination they outshine the rest of mankind. In my routine of searching different news sources I came across one such a person, a Mrs. Claire Lomas. She ignored everyone when they told her she would never walk again after falling from her horse while out riding. This 32 year old woman, paralyzed from the waist down was motivated to participate in the grueling London marathon to raise money for Spinal Research, a charity which funds medical research to develop treatments for paralysis. Reading the news story of her feat can be quite inspiring, when you consider how most of us complain about the simplest of things.

I invite you to click here to read her story and walk a marathon in her shoes…
