“But With Your Disability….”

Many a time, particularly growing up, this would said to me leading with an obstacle, but it needed to change…

So…No! We change it to…

“With my disability….”

I CAN approach things from a different perspective…

I CAN be creative (driving an automatic car)

I CAN build resilience needed for tough moments, to push through for those winter seasons and be ready for the spring.

I CAN share with the community. Social media has provided a powerful tool to engage with many in the same position as you and provided an opportunity to help those at their own beginning…

I CAN find the obstacle is the way! The fantastic book from Ryan Holiday really cemented my thinking of what I make of my path, so rather than trying to avoid or to get around things, I acknowledge obstacles ALONG on my way, they are there.,It’s my challenge to adapt and there is joy in that which can be shared.

So I say this….

With your disability…

You can.

We can.

Every Day.

Bringing you the latest in not only my personal journal into the world of disability Bodybuilding, but a discovery into latest events, profiles, news and promoting awareness of this great sport Based in Bristol in the UK, I’ve been competing in Disability Bodybuilding for the last 3 years in a journey which has taken me all over the country to national, international & world championships and I am so so grateful for that opportunity that had changed my life. Living with Cerebal Palsy has its challenges, but everyone has their individual hurdles to negotiate. Gaining strength both physically & mentally and adapting to the surrounding is all part of this journey. This is a mission to raise awareness, to promote our great category to develop opportunities for others. Please get in touch if you’d like to discuss more!
