Surfs up 🌊

when people @awalkonwater @mightyunderdogs @drd4fins 😀 invest their time in helping others adapt, our world instantly becomes a better place 🌍. @iamgavinmchugh is an actor who has cerebral palsy. he doesn't let that define him! he is an actor who loves ❤ to swim, surf, and go to the beach. with the help of @awalkonwater @mightyunderdogs @drd4fins he gets to go to the beach and surf 🏄‍♂️. we can all make adaptations to our lives but when given a helping hand or two the world becomes our playground! spread the love from coast to coast. there is always something we can all learn from each other 🧠. express yourself while pursuing your passions!

Wise words 😎❤️
.
stares... one of the things adaptive individuals tend to encounter in life. amy @onelegtostandon reminds us what really matters in those moments, with her wise words...❤️😎

i tend to get stared at when i walk. it used to bother me, and occasionally it still does. then i tell myself, “amy, you literally have a robot leg. what do you expect?!” •

most of the time, people aren’t trying to hurt or offend. they’re just curious. life is a lot easier when i remind myself of that. i am the one that gets to choose whether or not i get offended.

life lesson: chill out, and don’t get your p*****s in a w*d over stuff that doesn’t actually matter.

💕a surprise valentines post from ashley @ashtheflash10 to his fiancé @maddimagenniss 💝 •

“to my gorgeous fiance @maddimagenniss . just six weeks ago our lives were completely altered with the mistake that i made jumping off a pier without checking the depth. i awoke from surgery to be given the news that i would never walk again. my immediate reaction was to release you of any commitment you had to me thinking that you were young and did not sign up for any of this. what amazed me is that straight away you did not want to hear any of it and told me straight away that you are not going anywhere and we would get through this together. over the last six weeks that this roller coaster has taken us on you have continued to amaze me in ways i didn’t think was possible. the amount of strength and encouragement i get from you literally pushes me through my physiotherapy sessions to go harder and longer. the comfort i have received from hearing that first time you told me that our plans to still get married at the end of the year would not change and also our plans to begin a family although maybe done differently also would not change. i cannot thank you enough for not only the fundraising you have done for us but the constant love you show me each and every day. through the darkest of times you’ve given me the ability to still be excited about what the future has in store for us. i love you more than words could ever express. forever us! x - ashley “

Mommy love ❤️😍
.
we couldn’t get enough of this beautiful picture of crue @crue_zer one of the coolest kids on wheels and his loving mom ❤️ !! thank you for sharing this special moment with the world!! it’s amazing to be reminded of the resilience shown by the adaptive individuals we shine light on from all walks of life and all parts of the world, but let us never forget that usually there’s someone loving, supporting and believing in them like a mother, or brother, aunt, or friend, that stands behind them along the way. 🤔 who can you think of that believes in you, or that you believe in and tag them in this post with a “thank you for loving/supporting/believing in me” or “i believe in you”
❤️❤️❤️ let’s all remind ourselves of the love that we should all be busy sharing and caring with!! ————————————————————————— ••• i am adaptive™••• -join us-

this pic was taken just a few hours before i decided to catch a stomach bug and i’m pretty sure this is photo evidence of me passing my stomach bug germs on to my mama and she doesn’t even know it yet 😬 let’s pray i’m wrong 🙏🏼

Walking down the isle 🚶‍♀️ erin saari @er_dogg suffered a c4 spinal cord injury and was moving around with head controls. just 15 months later she walked down the isle at her sister's wedding 💝! each step you're taking gets you one step closer to reaching your goals 🏅. with your therapy and determination the sky is the limit. each and every time we fall we just have to get back up to keep trying ✊. be unshakable and never give up. there are no limits on how far we can advance, only the limits that we put on ourselves 🗣.

Raw truth 💯 "if you’ve seen my stories these past few days you’ll know that i’ve been dealing with societal stigma because of my disability.
without even realising, it seems something has been happening on a global scale... other ‘members’ of the limb difference community have been feeling it. the feeling that cuts deep when people stare, or worse make comments that are so ignorant and naive but still leave a mark on the person they’re directed at.
i understand that my appearance is different, i understand that you are curious, you want to know why and how? that’s a normal response. but you don’t have to point or stare. you certainly do not have the right to tell me i don’t belong. you also don’t have the right to assume, anything.
you can politely and respectfully ask me a question. i will politely respond.
i have a lot of young people living with a disability who follow me, as well as parents of children living with a disability... know this; my life is awesome!
i am not lesser than, i am not sad or lonely and i don’t feel embarrassed.
my disability is part of my story/life, a story/life which i might add is very interesting, exciting and fun!
my disability has opened so many doors! so many amazing opportunities!
for those of you who perhaps aren’t familiar with disability... if you see me and you are uncomfortable, that’s your issue, not mine!
as a child i suffered greatly due to the ignorance of others. so my mission is to respectfully educate the masses about my life and what i can do rather than what i can’t.
i’m a paralympian, i have a science degree with honors, i am an author, a speaker, a wife, a mother of 2 young kids, i drive, i do my hair and make up, i cut my food, i can push a pram and awkwardly drink a coffee... i do everything!
this post is for all the parents who follow me who have a child with a limb difference... at some stage your child will feel the same pain i’ve just described, but they will be ok. they will be more than ok. they will find their own way... and it will be perfect. {i’ve tagged some bloody awesome people in this photo - follow them 🙌🏽} #iamadaptive #limbdifference #amputee #disability #loudandproud #respect
