Inspiration at its Best.

If anyone was inspired by the Olympic Games in London 2012, then they are surely Doubly inspired in the Paralympics London 2012..

What an absolute joy to watch as you see these athletes regime of training come to fruition as they reach to attain new heights of personal achievements as they set the standards ever higher, smashing personal bests times and records, along with breaking new Olympic Records..

As you know I do not watch much TV, but I was so happy that Channel Four here in the UK are devoting over 400hours of airtime. You can view on line here at http://www.channel4.com/  to show how these special individuals who have not only overcome so much in their lives in their various disabilities, but how they have dedicated  themselves to become Super human individuals as they put their incredible abilities to work that would put you and I to shame with our Woes and Groans on how life is treating us..

One thing that saddens me  is that in some Countries this event isn’t being aired or given the coverage it so deserves.Even our main stream channels haven’t covered the Paralympics as they did the  London Olympics 2012. 

Many of our Military service men and women having their lives and limbs blown apart serving our Nations, are competing in the 2012 Paralympics..

Those with disabilities are not just born with them, many have lost limbs due to accidents as adults or children, along with War situations.     

But these Men women, girls and boys are showing the rest of the world the Power of Now..

They are showing us how to Live in the Moment, as they have set their goals through hard training and focused intention.

I have never been so amazed and what is achievable if one puts their minds to it to overcome their obstacles  as they swim, cycle, horse-ride, play basket ball, tennis, table tennis and compete in athletics and more.

Take a moment to look at some of their remarkable achievements.. each one with their own unique story of insurmountable determination in showing the rest of the world how we can over come with TRUE GRIT and determination ever challenge in life..

Be Inspired..

And then Rethink about YOUR Problems you have in life and Put your determination into Overcoming them..

I do hope that you will take the time to go watch some of your countries fine athletes as they give their all in their particular sporting event..

I have become a Fan of Wheelchair basket ball… Be Amazed at their speed and agility ..

I am Humbled and I thank each and every one of you who have taken part in these games..

You Inspire

      Thank you Ruth, yes I saw an interview with a USA Military gentleman who was not happy his own Country of the USA were not behind their paralympic men and woman, many in the U.S. squad injured during War conflicts. Its amazing how many want to push disabilities under the carpet, as they push statistics of casualties out of the public eye.. I am so proud of ALL our Paralympians And thank you Ruth, yes I sure will enjoy my break… 🙂 xx

    I wish there was another word for highest inspiration … they are incredible … no excuses for them. Spurring a spark for those with limbs as well as those without. I am sure the stories and feats during these Olympics will be heartwarming — alas, we don’t get much coverage for it. 😦

      Spurring a spark for those with limbs as well as those without.

      And sadly their stories are not shared enough around the world to inspire those who sit with nothing wrong with them saying to themselves ‘I Can’t!’
      These Athletes do not have those words I can’t in their vocabulary. Only I CAN and what can I do next? Heartwarming indeed! xxx

    a wonderful post Sue…
    we don’t have alot of coverage here in America, personally I believe because if
    you are not one of the “beautiful people” (celebrity look alikes) then the media is not interested, I tend to stay away from TV …
    our men and women in the service is being left in the dust so to speak
    though I will stop now, this is too beautiful of a post to crowd in politics….
    I couldn’t watch the video in this country, .but I have seen documentaries on these amazing athletes a few years ago….
    Thank you for sharing an inspiring story
    Take Care

    I thought Oscar;’s tantrum yesterday was interesting in that he is an icon. Has inspired thousands probably to “give it a go” and now they seem to be beating him. This can only be a good thing. But it also shows that he is humna, ultra competitive and hence a remarkable sportsman! We are all bundles of contradictions!

    You are honoured! Yours must be the first blog recently that I have been able to see the video in! I am suffering black rectange in the video space syndrome in Windows 7 for some reason – it’s fine in Vista so it’s also very wierd! Can’t even see my own on my own blog! It’s only in W/P so it’s not my Flash Driver, all very strange and inexplicable 😉

    You’re quite right about the Paraolympians of course, but for myself half of my captivation with the Olympics was all the mythology and magic that surrounded the Ancient Greek times…it was like walking in the paths of the gods and it touched my heart and spirit in a way I never expected. The flame inspired me and I couldn’t watch the closing ceremony because I’d have cried when they extinguished flame-which took on a life all of it’s own too-and I know I wasn’t alone in that, I gather there wasn’t a dry eye in the stadium at that point in the closing ceremony. I nurse the small comfort that it will be re-lit for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia…

    So whatever the rights and wrongs of my thoughts and feelings here, the Olympics was much much more to me than just sporting events etc. And as the ParaOlympics for all it’s inspirational qualities is simply not rooted in centuries of myth and magic and is much more recent therefore focussed far more on the sporting events and the athletes it just does not capture me in the same way and I haven’t really got into it. Not to say everything you have said here isn’t totally true or that I am right, but that is the way it is for me. Olympic fever was both thrilling and exhausting in equal measures, but post Olympic Depression is far far worse! London was the most awesome place ever for those weeks and the soldiers were amazing…it changed people into much nicer people for a short time…the spirit of the Ancient Greek Olympics burned bright in both flame and hearts. I don’t feel that now despite that these ParaOlympians are awesome sports men and women overcoming huge obstacles. London 2012 was the first Olympics I’ve taken an interest in- because through my blog posts I learned what it was originally and what the spirit of the Olympics was. I learned about the Olympic Flame and the Cauldron. I walked in the Paths of the Gods and I watched my 1st ever Opening Ceremony. The spirit of the Olympics burned in the Flame and when they extinguished it that day they extinguished something else too…But, I will be at the Olympic Victory Parade in London on Monday 🙂

      Hooooowwwls Wolfie, Loved your reply my four-legged friend… and We can be that place again.. When we join in the mind of one another to encourage and praise and cheer in delight at another’s achievements and successes.. When we no longer think of ourselves and problems, when we see the determination of Spirit in overcoming obstacles that seem insurmountable.. And yet here these wonderful Paralympians show us how despite their personal problems their Will-Power to succeed and overcome has stood them apart from many of us who moan about silly problems..

      My heart goes out to all of those taking part.. and to the thousand of Volunteers whose help was essential in creating such a wonderful Paralympics .. Im sure had I seen that flame extinguished I too would have cried Wolfie and I pray that the Flame of its Spirit is kept burning within many a heart.. For we need its spirit to show us how to overcome and survive in the face of adversity..

      Many Many thanks for your wonderful comment Wolfie.. Hugs.. ~ Let us forever keep that Spirit Alive.. ~Sue 🙂

        It was a bit long-winded to say the least! I’d be the first to admit that! I enjoyed our final Olympics event on Monday at the Olympic Victory Parade thanks to a good hearted boss giving me the day off to go. Ended up with 2 friends in tow and they had a wonderful time too. Even if we did have to leave one at the station after he’d bought the wrong ticket and had to wait another hr to travel! We paid for that when we jumped on the wrong train and ended up on an hr long journey to Winchester!! Took another hr to get back after a 50min wait and a missed train due to my friend’s desire for a photo by the Winchester sign to post on his f/bk page!! I think that is what that Olympic event will be remembered for 😉 lol 😀

Thankfully we have been blessed with Channel 4’s excellent coverage of the games here in the UK.. But even the BBC didnt cover it as it did the Olympics 2012. Sad for many missed some inspiring and wonderful achievements .. And so right what you said.. These athletes is what the SPIRIT of the games is all about.. 🙂
