It’s important to realize that with disabilities it is still possible to go on adventures, do activities, and live life with your loved ones that you never thought would be possible to live again.
It’s been well known that its dificult for people to go through changes in their lives (changin job, moving to another place or physical change). “Overcoming change” is to motivate and empower people undergoing changes and especially with disabilities.
I am Lera Alexandrova and I am here to share my journey of changes that I have had to overcome moving between the countries and my physical diabilties change. I would like to share how I am adapting to be independent and to take care of my children.
Since I was little I always had a heart for helping people and I hope this site will help people to overcome their changes through there life. I will also share all the things, equipment and information that helped me to adjust to the changes easier.
As mother of two young children It’s important for me to stay strong and show a good example to my children and people who needs an inspiration.
Inspirational People Stories
I was paralyzed and operated a power wheelchair with my head. Whenever i shared that I wanted to walk again, people looked at me as if I was disillusioned. I believe in a God who can move mountains and believed He had the power to move mine. I never gave up on my hope.
Being an athlete all of my life, I try to look at my spinal cord injury as a long tennis match. Meaning in a tennis match you go through periods of success and failure. With a spinal cord injury I go through periods of positive and negative emotions but I just continue to work through my negative days in hopes that the positive days will follow and in a larger amount.
When you have some tragedy that changes your life completely you have a choice: to victimize yourself or move forward and make the best out of it.
