Alabama | He Retaught Himself How to Live


If you’ve ever been lucky enough to meet my dad, you know he’s one of a kind. He’s seriously unlike anyone else out there. Long story short, after working ridiculously hard to earn a pharmacy degree, he had some major health issues that basically turned his life upside down. He was left to learn to walk again and had to reteach himself how to live, with only one side of his body working. Life hasn’t dealt him the easiest hand but he has taught me, more than anything, that no matter what, things could always be worse and that you just have to take the hand you’ve been dealt, make the best of it, and try to see the positive in every situation. To this day, he truly is the most positive and happy person I know and is such an inspiration to me. I just hope that one day I’m half as awesome as he is! I love you, Dad!
