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

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

Two days back
