It’s near impossible to surf the web without finding a story that touches your heart; the tales of heroism, endurance, faith and love are all over the web. It reminds me of all the good that exists in the world amid the tragedy, heartache and suffering that we see in the media.
So today I share with you a story of a man who has done so much to inspire me.
I first heard about Arthur Boorman almost a year ago, and it was through an amazing video documentary that shares his incredible journey of healing that helped me to power through some tough times. When I was unable to get out of bed in the morning and get my son off to school because of adrenal issues, when my anxiety was through the roof but I refused prescription meds, I was overweight, riddled with fatigue, scared to death, and doctors were unsure of how to help me recover from terrible digestive trauma, I remembered Arthur Boorman. He was a paratrooper in the Gulf War (when I was in high school, goofing off, he was fighting to protect our freedom) and came home with such severe injuries that he was eventually told he would never walk again.
Yet, he did. Not only did he walk again, he runs. And I love to watch him run.
He lost weight, overcame health traumas, and became the man he was meant to be through yoga and today he inspires me to keep on keeping on.
I challenge you to watch his video and not be inspired. Think of Arthur Boorman whenever you feel like giving up. When you feel like you can’t turn the corner and are stuck at a plateau. I do, and it helps me.
As Arthur says, “Just because I can’t do it today, doesn’t mean I’m not going to be able to do it someday”.
Those are words to live by….
