Inspirational people…

 

Hello to you, and welcome,

This week, I’m saying very little…
I really want to introduce you to two utterly inspiring Australians who epitomise the art of Resilience

Firstly, Maurice Gleeson, who is without vision after a childhood accident. If you have ever wondered, like I have often, what to say to someone who has been through a difficulty, from six minutes in, you will learn so much.
Maurice has beautiful life wisdom that it would be unfair of me not to share him.
I do hope the link opens for my friends outside Australia… I’ve enabled Adobe…

The second awesome Australian is Turia Pitt.

I’ve been following Turia’s journey since she came to our attention after being horrifically burnt in a fire in 2012.
She is interviewed with her amazing partner in a short video that I’m sure will melt you, move you and have you reaching for the tissues. Throughout it all is a beautiful story of Love and resilience.

Please don’t listen to do me a favour, please listen to do yourselves a favour. 

If we are able to soak up the wisdom from people who have been through so much… If they can inspire us…
If their tragedies, struggles and triumphs can be given meaning by sharing of
themselves for others…

Anything I can do to share stories and inspiring people who allow us the gift of falling in love with life again after hardships…then I’m content…

I wish you well,
much love,

Di xx

  1. Di, I am not surprised at all that you’ve found a way to share the stories of these inspiring people with us. Isn’t there often an unspoken expectation that we become “less-than” after suffering a tragedy? But when we meet people like Maurice and Turia, who have not only recovered, but have GROWN from their experiences, it epitomizes inspiration. Loved it and thank you for this extra-strength dose of goodness.

      1. Aaww I’m glad it did Di and it’s true, I find you’re positivity oozing from you’re lovely blog posts. It’s wonderful to see that as it’s a rare to find such a trait in people today who see positively through all situations.

        Thank you Deej, I just checked my spam, I did manage to find a comment of yours for one of my previous posts, is that what you were referring to or the recent post?

        Thank you and have a lovely day.

      2. Hello again Sobia,
        Thank you again…I needed to hear your positivity today.
        It’s honestly meant a lot.
        And I love how you’ve called me Deej…you must know my surname starts with J! My daughter Danielle was always called Deej and written that way too…She now has a new surname after her wedding so please feel very welcome to use that any time you choose to.
        Thank you again…
        Deej🙋🏻💐

      3. Aawww how sweet and that was quiet coincidental that I called you Deej, as you see my dear friend is mostly allied Deej as a nickname and so therefore used it with yourself not knowing that it held a deeper meaning.
        I sure will Deej if that’s something you like and love then I’ll aim to call you as such.

  2. Thank you, thank you, Di, for sharing these people with us. I watched the interview with Turia, and I am blown away by her attitude and humour after facing death the way she did. I am inspired to keep making lemonade, no matter what I face. I can’t view the other video, but I will track it down on YouTube somehow. Can’t wait! Thanks again, Di!! xo

    1. Hello again Cyranny! I had one of those days where comments were not appearing. I’ve visited your blog today and left comments. Just wanted to let you know…I get upset thinking no one knows I’ve visited their blog or bothered to comment…
      No stress to reply…🙋🏻💕

      1. Oh my!! Thank you for leaving this message, Di! Your messages were indeed in my “spam” file for no obvious reason!! And even if I should check it more regularly, I always forget…. I’ll get back to you on your kind messages a little later, this morning 🙂

        Thank you again for taking the time to tell me about your unanswered comments 🙂 xx

      2. You are very welcome Cyranny. Thank you for your gracious reply. I’m sad it gives you more work. I never check Spam either.
        And absolutely reply any time. I know they are safely in your hands now so no pressure.
        I’d be so sad if you thought I didn’t bother reading any of your posts, that’s the only reason I had to let you know. I may not see them all but I check in regularly as you are now part of my blogs to follow…
        Until soon,
        all the best from Di 🙋🏻💜
