It is amazing that this was said by a super man. He was … Superman. Christopher Reeve played the “pants on the outside, cape wearing, Lois Loving, alien”. He said this after he had his accident and was thrown from his horse which broke his neck, paralysed him from the neck down and confined him to a wheelchair. Sure, it got him down, but it didn’t defeat him. His enemy was more than Lex Luthor, more than General Zod. His enemy was himself, but he defeated that enemy and became more of a Superman than he was before the accident. He became an inspiration. After all, if someone who can only move his head slightly can have hope, can believe anything and everything is possible, why can’t we?
When you are on one of your downward spirals, think of it as a trampoline. It will “boing” you back up. There is always hope in everything we say, in everything we do. Even if you don’t see it straight away. Don’t give up. Have hope. Have faith. Have a breather. Smile. Anything is possible because you can achieve it.
Have a great weekend.
