“You’re not disabled (limited) by your disabilities, you are able (enabled) by your abilities.”

“The biggest disability we often face (and live with) is the limitation(s) we place on ourselves, so rather think ability.”

“In my various writings I try to show the extra-ordinary in ‘ordinary’ (what’s that?) lives, as revealed by strength of character, resilience, the depths of courage and especially the immense generosity of spirit of so many “ordinary” (what’s that?!) people, as they struggle along daily with what is called the journey of life.”

“Success: how and the spirit with which you face, then overcome the daily obstacles, the frequent trials and tribulations along the often rocky path-way of life’s magical and mysterious journey. Light your path brightly…”

” I truly believe we can ALL create and enthuse magic into ‘so-called humdrum little lives’. You don’t just have to be the choreographer, or the conductor of your life script – rather paint your life as the masterpiece it could (one day) be. There is a rich tapestry of talent in every human soul, that flows through the spirit of God. So don’t spend your days stringing and tuning your instrument; start making and playing your unique tunes of music right now.”

“Success: how and the spirit with which you face, then overcome the daily obstacles, the frequent trials and tribulations along the often rocky path-way of life’s magical and mysterious journey. Light your path brightly.”

“Champions aren’t made in the gym. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them – an inner flame that burns brightly…with purpose, desire and passion. True champions live the dream, the vision of who and what they can one day become…. even a long time before it happens.”

”When you come to the edge of all of the light you’ve known, and are about to step off into the darkness of the unknown; faith is knowing one of two things will happen. You’ll have something solid to stand on, or you’ll be taught how to fly.”
