Passion and a Plan

courage to continue

Yesterday I spoke with John. He was looking for a sounding board.

He wanted to know how a double above knee amputee from another country could pursue a career as a Real Estate Agent in Utah. We talked, and I asked questions.

In reality, John was exploring his ability to step outside his comfort zone. He has had two trying years, one as an above knee amputee, with attendant down time, therapy and adjustment.

John had been a very active person, a fishing guide and hunter, and a ski instructor, getting to know the mountains of Utah over his lifetime like the back of his hand

I listened. I sensed frustration and desires for things to be as they were. I heard passion.

John has returned to fly fishing from his boat. (We joked that I had enjoyed fishing the Great Barrier Reef: he would continue to annoy fresh water fish with other skills.)

John has had time to think, and plan. What if he could encourage others with disABILITIES to come fish with him, to learn his skills for themselves? To enjoy the outdoors in Utah.

By the end of our conversation, he was pumped. The whole world could be invited to Fish Utah.

John has a plan. He has passion. His best years lie ahead.

Larry, your next button should be "I know no limits!" You think outside the box and achieve what others only dream about! Enjoy your day!

Wayne - I use variations of "No Limits - No Excuses" to remind myself of life's possibilities. It's a wonderful life; so much still to do. Be well, have a great day.no limits - no excuses button

Larry, I loved this story and the fact that your friend was so pumped and saw the possibilities, thanks to you. One saying that also helps me and taped to my monitor so I see it every day is "Faith is trusting what you cannot see".  Thank you for sharing some of your reminders, I believe like you I am not done here yet, so many more things to do and achieve and experience.  Have a wonderful day.

Mary - great reminder. Good to see you as a fellow human doing rather than just a human being. With faith, we all still have the best ahead of us.
