We come into the world with nothing and will go out of the world with nothing, but it is what we put into the middle that counts. Why be the wealthiest person on the planet when we are unable to take that money with us when the time arrives to depart from this great place?


I have a motto,

“Why get out of bed in the morning if you haven’t got dreams to strive to become true, because we are going to spend a long time deceased.”


Having family, relatives and friends around me is important. Being fit and healthy and making the most of my life, especially not knowing or appreciating how my disability could affect me later on in life, particularly my mobility. Accept new opportunities, because you do not know where it might take you and the people you will meet along the way.
