Beauty from determination

Courage and determination can change everything.

A young woman in her thirties had been a dancer from a young age. She lost her entire left arm in an accident and fell into a state of depression for a few years.

Someone asked her to lead a dance group for children. That’s when she realized she could not forget dancing. She still loved to dance and wanted to dance again. So she started to do some of her old routines, but having lost her arm, she had also lost her balance. It took a long time before she could even perform simple turns without falling.

It was then that she heard of a young man in his twenties who had lost a leg in an accident. He also was on an emotional roller coaster of denial, depression and anger, but she was determined to find him and persuade him to dance with her. He had never danced in his life, let alone with one leg.

He categorically refused but she did not give up and eventually he accepted against his better judgment, saying that he had no other purpose in life.

She started to teach him dancing.

After several interruptions (never having danced, he did not know how to use his muscles, and discouragement and anger prevailed), they are finally back together and began to receive serious training .

They hired a choreographer to design routines suitable for them and this is the result.

What’s your excuse for not getting what you want out of life?

The Old Wolf has spoken.
