My Story...
Hi I’m Alex and I’m a marine engineer, while working out in the Caribbean in 2006 during some leisure time I went swimming and my whole life changed in an instant... I hit my head on a sand bank and broke my neck. The vertebrae at c5 fractured and c6 broke into three parts one of which damaged my spinal cord, leaving me paralysed from the chest down. More

The unconscious discovery.. the reality, realisation of the world around you, no matter what walk of life everybody is suffering their own way.. my way learning patience, independence gone.. a life lived before leading up to what was, everything taken away left to live reliant on everybody for everything

It’s hard to write each day as the day is the same… time standing still while the world goes by…

A moment in time seems to drag on by… but on the day you die…. you would do anything and everything to live that one moment once more

But my dear friend that one moment went and cannot be again…

Your time here is given… your time can be taken.. today…. tomorrow or in twenty years.. one day, maybe very soon or far away, you will want that one moment back… but it’s not yours to live anymore

One time here, one time in our body.. use it with care, but do with it everything you can because one day will come…

That may be today.. although it doesn’t feel this way but time is your friend

My friend and yours but all the time that is… and will be, one day, one moment it’s gone

It’s all about undirection! Life without direction, a path unset, just the way we head… but one time and once alone can we journey down this path, the way ahead unclear but still the path we follow.. thru the pain and heartache we continue

Dwelling on the past can suffocate you… right now I’m having trouble breathing….

One path to walk, one life to live

Opened up for the world to see… to see me, inside and out, an insight into paralysis, you can’t and wouldn’t want to live a day like me…. but read my story and see my journey through my world over ten years, you may start to see the real me, through my own eyes you will see

Quote from aeon flux

“To live only once… but with hope”

You are born.. that alone is beautiful, the baby the life preserved within, the hope and opportunity of a future untold…. with it comes pain, the birth itself is torture, the pain unbearable, but that the beauty and fragile being that is the body of the mother can bear, the pain the agony within… to create that which each and everyone once was.. a new born life given, to which we each live our own way.

Direction and education given but free will and freedom of independence as you grow the way ahead, is yours to take.

Be all that you are, before all that you are is taken, for this life you only live once, live it your way… be you

Sometimes in life you get lost…

If you are lost, you can always be found, or find your way again….

My life was taken away from me.. now I see it’s my purpose to get it back again

Find a purpose, and you will find yourself

Be you as it’s one thing nobody else can
