from @yoocandoanything - "i’ve always loved to perform. when i (@mybusylittlebee) was between the ages of 16-18, i belonged to a drama school. at the time, i was very overweight, and as a result of this, i was incredibly shy. i started life modeling to try and overcome my insecurities and build my confidence levels. when i became disabled at 26 years of age, i lost myself completely and became trapped – not only in the chair, but also inside my own head. i began to hate my body, and all that it represented. i would change in the dark and never in front of people, i would close my eyes when my carers washed or showered me. i couldn’t bare to acknowledge my physical state. in 2015, i had a bad fall which kept me in hospital over christmas. during this period i thought long and hard about my life, and the role i had to play in this world. i felt like a drain on society. i felt like it wasn’t fair for people to have to look after me, just because of this one incident that had changed my life forever! but then it dawned on me; i had to get out of the negative headspace i was in, and start to view and use my body positively. a friend of mine told me i looked beautiful and that i should go back to life modeling. so i did. today i hope to can inspire other wheelchair users to take life by the horns and do what ever they want. this is the year for me and you!" read fuchsia's full story at yoocanfind.com
Fantastic first day in port lincoln. i met three strong, passionate, wise members of he betts family from warna-manda aboriginal corporation. we discussed their need for funding and a bus so they can continue to help disengaged young people connect with their aboriginal heritage, as well as offering immersive tours on country.
then i spent a few hours at the port lincoln ndis expo, talking to community members about the changes and opportunities the ndis presents.
after lunch at the marina (scenic shot included for your enjoyment), i sat down with port lincoln mayor, bruce green, to discuss how we can work together on issues like accessibility and mental health.
after that i had the pleasure of catching up with members of the local zonta club of port lincoln inc, who very graciously hosted me earlier in the year. more tomorrow! #portlincoln#southaustralia#ndis#amazingview#saparli#saparliament#localgovernment#community#disability#aborigionalland#mentalhealth
“fairytales can come true
but you’ve got to make them happen
it all depends on you”. eight years ago, i met my fairytale in the form of a little, mangled, (slightly-murderous) crossbred pony.
she was small, and slightly crazy. but she had the heart of a lion.
two years ago, i discovered extreme cowboys. i started with my quarter horse, and then decided to try it with my little scruffy pony…. she took to it like a cat to water…. (not great.) but we tried. and we tried, and we tried. we succeeded, and we failed, and we grew.
it wasn’t easy… but fairytales never are.
and eventually, my determination and love for this sport weeded it’s way into marlea’s own heart.
for sixteen years i’ve dreamed of having a wreath wrapped around my best friends neck, and to be handed a championship buckle. i’ve trained, and worked, and dreamed for this exact moment for as long as i can remember.
beating a field of 13 professionals and their incredible horses, my little lion heart and i finally did it.

Note : jangan dilihat nanti pusing
jalannya panjang, kayak kehidupan yang harus terus berlanjut. kadang suara bising juga harus didengarkan biar terus intropeksi diri dan mungkin berbenah diri, yang penting tetap kalem aja.
yakin jika allah subhanahuwataalla memberi hadia yang luar biasa pada orang yang terus berprasangka baik terhadap jalan yang dia beri pada umat-nya.
