Aaron Rose, a film director I admire once wrote:
“In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary”.
When speaking of OttLite's January Rock Star Terri Kacie, that sentence would go a little more like this:
“In the right light, at the right time, everyone is extraordinary”.
Some people go beyong the ordinary, deleting the word impossible of their vocabulary and taking a huge bite out of life.
This is the case for OttLite's Rock Star of the month, Terri Kacie.
When Terri discovered a disease would confine her to a wheelchair for the rest of her life, she chose not to give up and to resume her life long aspirations of a healthy lifestyle.
Basketball? Not a problem. Hiking? She loves it!
Tennis? Terri is Nationally ranked.
Most able-bodied people (myself included) don't come close to the amount of physical activity Terri participates in.
As if it weren't enough to prove the world that she is one of a kind, Terri decided to literally reach new heights by becoming the first wheelchair-bound woman to rappel in the world.
You can check out her story here:http://www.ottlite.com/rockstar.aspx
So, the next time you’re complaining and saying something is too difficult, think of Terri: If she can do it, You can too!
