I was so inspired lately by catching snippets of the Paralympics. I was just amazed by the way in which the athletes have adapted to their abilities while at the same time challenging the way things are done. You might have seen the table tennis player who threw the ball with his toes and held the bat in his mouth or the double arm amputee swimmers.
The advertising campaign run by UK broadcaster Channel 4 (also seen on Australia's Channel 7) featured a series of amazing Paralympic athletes repeating the mantra "Yes I can". I just loved the title of the ad - "We're the Superhumans". I love this spin that is put on what would traditionally be seen as a disability being seen as leading to superhuman efforts. Hopefully some of us can apply this spin to our own lives.
I see superhumans in my shop every week!
