Touching the Sky Without Arms

29 May

Each minute of our life is a lesson but most of us fail to read it. I thought I would just add my daily lessons & the lessons that I learned by seeing the people around here. So it may be useful for you and as memories for me…….

The lesson for today is…” Today morning when I am going through the mails in my Inbox, I found a mail about a girl called Jessica  Cox who was Armless. Even though Jessica was born without hands, she never used words like I Can’t, I may not  in her life”

I would like to present Jessica Cox  images which are really inspiring & motivating.

Jessica Cox (born 1983 in Arizona) is the world’s first licensed armless pilot , as well as the first armless black-belt  in the American Taekwondo Association. She was born without arms due to a rare birth defect.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Using her feet as most people use their hands, she is able, among other things, to drive a car to type on a  keyboard(25 words per minute), to pump her own gas, and to put in and remove her contact lenses.

“Disability is a matter of perception. If you can do just one thing well, you’re needed by someone.”

In my opinion The only disability in life is a bad attitude.

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

According to Jessica, being different physically from other people has taught her to be strong and persistent. And in an imperfect world where many people are dealing with their own handicaps — real or imagined — she wants to make a difference by helping them deal with their limitations.

Said Jessica: ?I want people to think, ?Hey, if she can do so much without arms, then I can do so much more with my life.??

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

She used to say anything is possible, if we have zeal to learn, determination and fire to do the things. She also says physical disabilities are not at all any barriers which can stop us to reach our goal.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Everyone should  learn from Jessica that inner strength, thinking out of the box is more than enough to overcome issues, solve problems in our life.

If Jessica, who is Armless achieved & reached to such a great heights, what about the people who are physical perfect, having everything that they need in life?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Hats off Jessica.
