Grateful for the movement I have….

I remain incredibly grateful for the movement have in this life, no matter any frustrations that comes along the path which at first glance may seem restrictive, but I’m often reminding myself that while I do have muscle limitation in structure, it could have been even more challenging had things not been as quick when I was born.

That drives the journey in many areas in my life and I’m faced with choices on a daily basis between frustration and upset and finding the adaptions and the way forward.

It is frustrating not many able to do something straight away as intended – at every turn – but as upsetting as it was in my younger days, it’s through those experiences and getting older that enables me to look at situations with a different perspective.

I’m learning every day to find a new way or to look at something differently with a more open mind. I find that in itself requires lots of patience and effort but it also reflects a deeper level with lots of other things in my life too. It shapes my approach with relationships, work, unexpected challenges and day to day tasks. This can throw barriers in the way, but that experience at least provides the tools to attempt to lift those barriers.

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!
