Friday's Fabulous Flyer
Enjoy the Journey~
The hour is approaching 0100 and I have just returned from Pele, the Goddess of Destruction and Re-birth. So who could be better for today’s Friday Flyer than JanineShepherd.
After being hit by a truck while training for the Olympics, Janine’s life and body were destroyed. And yet she overcame this horrific tragedy to become a bestselling author, pilot and inspirational speaker to thousands around the world.
In essence, she was re-birthed.
"If I can't walk, I'll fly!"
“Janine has an extraordinary ability to ignite people’s spirits and move them to find the real potential of their lives; her story inspires people around the world.”
Janine just wrote a new book: The Gift of Acceptance and Hallmark just picked it up. A gift for all of us is coming soon. I just wanted to share this exceptional news, for a special lady who will be coming to the United States for a book tour.
“The Gift of Acceptance is a collection of wisdom, insights and advice from one of Australia’s most respected and inspiring national figures.
"Learning from others and from her own experience, she has come to realize that the process of finding acceptance has been crucial in her search for quality of life and peace of mind. Janine believes that whatever our circumstances may be, we all need to nurture acceptance in our lives in order to move on from tragedy or loss and find fulfillment. Janine’s latest book is a gift for us all.”
Take a moment to view Janine's movie below. And make sure to have some tissues standing by. Janine is about possibility. About being more than your body. That despite all the piles of dirt thrown on her back, she found the strength to create the new her. She found freedom in losing it all.
I have my last yoga class at 0630 this morning, and I still must pack. I'll be heading to the airport at 8. So I will say good-night to this incredible week of healing, inspiration, and possibility.
Oh... and about Pele... She is said to come visit those who bring offerings. And once in awhile, you can catch a photo of her.
