Disability through illness or injury is indiscriminate.
Becoming disabled is a difficult transition both mentally & physically.
We need to find our own way to adapt our new lives so we can embrace what we do have & live our lives to the full.
We are extremely excited to announce the launch of our charity. Please check out our charity's website by clicking on the link to the right:
Since I have started writing these daily Reasons to Smile posts, I have been blessed with many emails from friends & family with suggestions for the day's content.
Today's Reason to Smile, is one of these said suggestions & came from a very wonderful lady, who happens to be a friend of the best friend of the incredible young man who is the subject of this film.
I'm not going to lie to you; you will really struggle to watch this film without shedding a tear or ten, but please do not let that put you off- this is a wonderfully made documentary about a truly wonderful individual & his inspiring life.
The positivity & joy that this amazingly strong guy exudes on this film, has stayed with me for the last twenty four hours since I watched this film, & strangely outways the feeling of sadness that is naturally going to be felt when dealing with a topic of this nature. I simply can not get the spirit of this magnificent man out of my head- an incredible, incredible.guy & also a fantastic support network of friends & family.
The wonderful story, of the wonderful life of Alex Lewis is what is making me smile today.
Focus on the great things in your life; every day is so incredibly precious!
Please, please take an hour out of your week to check out this video...
