I hope by now you’ve all seen the incredible comeback from gymnastics Kaitlyn Ohashi. She was an Olympic hopeful that didn’t qualify and decided to join the UCLA team. This was her comeback: A perfect 10, not only that but a move in her routine was so complex it wasn’t even in the rulebook. If that’s not fucking awe inspiring I’m not sure what is.
She credits finding her happiness for the sport again to her coach. I can’t look at her routine and not smile and feel life affirming.
In my own life I have been blessed with the help of other people so many times I can’t even begin to count them all. Strangers have saved my life more than thrice. People that don’t even know me have changed the course of my life in positive ways and helped me be who I am. I am not a stand alone being, nor would I want to be. This life has added depth to it because of other human beings.
Yes I pray, I look to God. I believe in celestial entities. But I am nothing. I am no one. I wouldn’t be here today we’re it not for the help of the mortal beings that have surrounded me. People I can’t even thank have helped me in ways I can’t even begin to explain and for that I am ever humbled and grateful.
It doesn’t take much to make a difference in someone’s life. Trust me!
