Some People I'm Inspired By



Today I just took a look around and decided to write about a few of the people that inspire me. Whether in a profound or simple way, everyone in today's post is someone that I admire and feel I can learn something from. This is not a complete list, just what I am feeling today:

Jesse Billauer: In 1996, Jesse's life completely changed when he became paralyzed in a surfing accident. Since then, he founded Life Rolls On and is back in the water. Life Rolls On exists to be a resource that provides hope and is an advocate on behalf of young people whose lives have been affected by spinal cord injury. His foundation merged with The Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation this year.

Heather Jones: She's dedicated and focused on her goal. When she misses it by a fraction, she's got a sense of humor about it. Heather is the mastermind behind Real Women Golf.

Wendi Kali: She's determined that at age 40 she will have her best year of football. Follow her progress, dreams, and frustrations on her blog My WFA Days.

Thank YOU Wendi!

Aww shucks, you're the best Apryl. I'm still scared to death to surf. So that makes you my hero!

I really need to get my a@@ to Cali so we can golf. I have a feeling I'll be shelling out some serious bucks if I can get you to join my Birdie Club. ;o)

Apryl DeLancey said...

Um yeah, you do need to get here for some golf! You'll totally beat me!

Heather said...

I'm not so sure about that. But I know we'd laugh our butts off and risk getting thrown off the course.
