I wanted to share with all of you something inspiring that i had the pleasure of witnessing yesterday when i went to work. First i have to tell you about something we are doing at work. The other day i got an email from the social committee at work and they said that they were challenging employees to walk around the perimeter around the building, 4 times + 1K. For every kilometer people walk they will donate $1.00 up to $500.00 each week or month for the cancer society i think it was. So i have been doing my part. Wednesday i walked 3K 12 times around and on thursday and friday i did 4k which is a total of 32 times around. Yesterday it rained so i only got 1k in which is still good. Ok ok now to the inspiring part. Well yesterday when i arrived at work there was a young man also doing his part to raise money for the good cause. The thing that inspired me is this, for you see this young man was just any old person but it was a man that was disabled, he walked with the assistance of to walked type crouches. When i saw him doing his part i thought WOW is that just amazing someone who is disabled can struggle to do his part so why is it that so many people who are physically able do there part. It made me want to cry, not sad tears but happy ones as this man made me proud, he wasn't making excuses as to why he couldn't do it but yet he was out there doing his part. I thought this is something we could all learn from and maybe it would inspire those who are feeling unmotivated saying that they cant, because if he cant then why cant we, WE CAN DO IT YES WE CAN.
