I know of a woman who was a lifelong landscaper, active, moving, walking on all sorts of surfaces without a moment’s thought. After an accident, several surgeries, and fusions, she was left unable to work. She is now a self-employed custom cookie designer, and has a thriving home-based business. Reinvention over adversity.
I know of a man who developed extreme arthritis from many years of hard physical labor. He has now turned his talents to small wooden works of art, which he sells in local and regional art venues. Reinvention over adversity.
I discovered today a wonderful photographer based in Donegal, Ireland. James O’Donnell suffered an almost fatal electrocution on his London workplace fifteen years ago. He is working and thriving today in Donegal with his faithful sidekick, Iggy, a lovely border collie. Watch the video below to see some of his amazing photography. Reinvention over adversity.
As long as there is life, there is hope. As long as there is God, nothing is impossible. As long as you have breath, praise the Lord. 🙂 Reinvention over adversity.
