I write about the importance of attitude and positive energy in your life so, I was deeply moved by a young man’s remarkable story of strength and faith. This incredible young man not only survived a tragic event in his life but rose above and beyond holding onto his faith that God has a plan for him.
My life as a writer and cancer survivor helps focus my perspective when learning about amazing people and the incredible experiences they have to share. I got a double dose of perspective recently while researching an article for Ginzy Magazine about the former University of Tennessee football star Inky Johnson.
He turned around a devastating football injury, paralyzing his right arm and costing him his lifelong dream of playing in the NFL, into motivating others to fight through challenges even if it means surrendering to the will of God.
Thanks to Patrick Abbo, editor of this uplifting publication, Ginzy Magazine for your mission to break through all the negative vibes and dedicate your content to relevant stories about what’s good in the world. Introducing me to Inky’s determination and tenent to be a blessing in someone else’s life cemented the importance of spreading his philosophy to the world.
Daily I’m reminded that it’s not about me but how the decisions that I make can affect the lives of others. Inky Johnson got it right, in whatever you do, “Be a Blessing in Someone Else’s Life.”
