There is ALWAYS a Way!

I read a post by Mike Corso where he asked to share stories that inspire us. My mind went right to a painting class I took once for fun. There were people from all walks of life in this class. Some were like me who were there just to pursue a hobby, but others were professional painter honing their skills.

One day I was getting paint from the back room. A person in a wheelchair came in and asked me if I can pour him some paint. He explained he needed help because his legs and arms both don't work. Of course, I was happy to help but very curious to see how he was going to paint.

I peaked out as he setup. When he was ready, he held the paintbrush between his teeth and started to paint! It was quite a sight to see. He made the most incredible paintings. I could tell he has been doing this for awhile. The instructor later told me Jake loved painting, is a professional painter and made his living selling his paintings.

I always think of Jake when I think there is something that I can't do. I think if there is something you want, you just have to work with what you, and figure it out. Thank you Jake...you have been my inspiration.
