Hello, I’m Nick! If someone told you that there are limits, Know that he is lying … because there are none! These words, spoken by Nick Vujicic, best reflect will and defiance that this genius generated to enter into a battle with life. Without arms and legs, but with a big heart.
Dancing is how I stay warm in the barn and I never know when I’m going to break out into a dance. But what most people don’t know is that 15 years ago I had a traumatic back injury that caused me to have several back surgeries including a discectomy and a spinal fusion and never ending back pain. Dancing along with yoga and meditation are my only alternatives to pain medication. So I hope this can inspire anyone to move in spite of pain and I hope this puts a smile on your face for the New Year.
“Do not pray for an easy life, pray for the strength to endure a difficult one.”
Most of us have at some point wished when facing hardship that our life could be easier. Bruce Lee asked us to look at these problems differently. Instead of asking for an easier life, which is likely futile anyway, he suggests we ask of ourselves how we can be stronger. Like the philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche, Bruce Lee believed that what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger. Through hardship, we can become a better version of ourselves.
