"We can either watch life from the sidelines, or actively participate...
Either we let self-doubt and feelings of inadequacy
prevent us from realizing our potential,
or embrace the fact that when we turn our attention away from ourselves,
our potential is limitless."
~ Christopher Reeve
In 1995 during an equestrian competition, actor Christopher Reeve was thrown from his horse and instantly paralyzed from the neck down and unable to breathe. But he refused, in his own words, to "allow a disability to determine how I live my life."
From the time after his accident up to his death in 2004, Christopher Reeve not only put a human face on spinal cord injury, he motivated neuroscientists around the world to conquer the most complex diseases of the brain and central nervous system.
Have a joyful day everyone. And remember to live a flourishing life.
