“I ain’t got the abs or calves that I used to have, but I got the swag!” 😎 self phrase. My body completely changed after a #spinalcordinjury and at first, and as somebody really into fitness, it was hard realizing I’d never be able to work out my legs or abs and get them back, no matter how much I worked out! 😕 I used to be so proud of my abs and legs and that’s what I lost... (I’m paralyzed from midchest down). So never idolize anything, never think you’re too “cool” or untouchable! No one is truly invincible! One second you’re up, and literally the next you could be down, just like that! That’s how I felt, superwoman, super proud and in seconds I couldn’t walk, talk, breathe or eat for myself!! I had to be hooked to a ventilator, couldn’t talk... couldn’t move... all in the midst of losing my boyfriend Patrick...it was SO tough!! But I can assure you, no matter how low you go, with faith and determination, YOU CAN ALWAYS GET BACK UP! 🙌 My thick legs, abs etc, it’s something I had to get over, REAL quick in order to move FORWARD in life! ♿️ My WORTH wasn’t because of my body, but what’s inside of me! The pic on the left is one of my last pics in a bikini before my accident, just a couple months. And the one on the right, is a recent one, finally feeling good enough to pose in a bikini, confidently 😊. With all this I’m sharing, I never want people to feel bad for me!! It is what it is, life’s just like that; unexpected and unpredictable- anything can happen and we can’t control that! You can only control your attitude towards it! I had to learn to love myself, whether I had calves or not 😂. I don’t really have calves or abs, but I got several scars I can show you 😂. But they’re reminders of so much that I’ve gone through! That’s enough for me to be proud of myself! There’s nothing more powerful than a strong, confident woman! Be proud of your body, YOUR journey, and who you ARE!! And just remember that beauty is NOT measured by race, size or abilities! So let’s learn to see the beauty in everyone and become more INCLUSIVE AND DIVERSE!! 🙌😘 #transformationtuesday #sci #paralyzed #beforeandafter #mood #beconfident #nevergiveup #rollingproudandstrong ♿️💪

I caught a sickness bug earlier this week and it's taking a while for me to recover 🤢. I find being poorly makes my mood pretty low in general, but I'm keeping my head up and went to work today. The worst part for me when I first got it I was to weak to push myself - THE HORROR 😅😷. Getting better now though! I'm laying back on YouTube videos too coz it's taking a lot out of me... x #girl #work #supportworker #life #love #thoughts #career #job #paraplegic #paralysis #paralyzed #wheelchair #wheelchairselfie #disabled #brunette #blueeyes #disability #makeup #fashion #legs #change #confidence #body #bodypositivity #wheelchairmodel #woman #life

No outlet. 😐 I got a van! #viewfromalift is a collection of photographs/videos of what I see from the lift on my van in my daily travels. The lift is what I use to get out and in my van. It is yet another celebration of my independence. #independence #disabiltyawareness #paralyzed #paraplegic #handicapped #handicapthis #sci #spinalcordinjury #spinalcordinjuryawareness #sunset #nooulet #art #arts #artworld #artoninstagram #artphotography #contemporaryart #contemporaryartcurator #myart #modernart #photoart #photoartist #photographicart #instart #instartist #priyarayphotography

“I trust myself.” When I first started traveling, I didn’t trust myself enough to transfer myself. Now, I know how to speak up to say what I need others to do in order to do it myself. Have to learn to trust yourself & your abilities! Lets get a 🤘🏻in the comments for rocking out and learning to trust yourself!

Here's a video for everyone that's never seen a paraplegic cat wearing a diaper wrestling with a Kong Kickaroo. Which I imagine is pretty much everyone. Also her tummy's all better today. #cat #cripplecat #kittycat #kitty #kitten #instacat #catstagram #catsofinstagram #siamesepoint #siamesecat #lynxpointsiamese #handycat #paraplegic #specialneedscat #kittyplay #handycapable #kong #kickaroo #diapers #catsindiapers

People often say, I just don’t have time to do it. Which is true, nobody has time, because time is not something you can own. The key is to MAKE USE of your time, henceforth, people MAKE time for what they want. It’s easier to lie to ourselves, by blaming our lack of success to our lack of necessary time needed to accomplish a specific goal. A major component in success, is our ability to MAKE USE of the time we are given.

“Many things aren’t equal but everyone gets the same 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We make time for what we truly want!”

Mexicana por siempre y orgullosamente!! Esté en donde esté llevo a mi México querido SIEMPRE en mi corazón! Octubre es Mes de la Herencia Hispana, una herencia de la cual yo estoy sumamente ORGULLOSA! Para los que no saben, yo nací y crecí en León, Guanajuato y me mudé a E.U. a los 13 años. Hoy en día soy ciudadana americana (también me enorgullece mucho) gracias a que mi abuelo era ciudadano americano, PERO mi abuelo adoraba a su México y en su honor y a mis raíces, yo siempre voy a estar orgullosa de ser Hispana, Latina, y en especialmente de SER MEXICANA!! 🇲🇽Un saludo muy cariñoso en especial a TODOS mis mexicanos, guerreros, luchadores alegres y que honestamente cómo México y su gente no hay dos!!! 🙌Los quieroooo 😘 No olviden que aunque estoy acá soy de ustedes (y casi siempre traduzco todos mis posts al español- solo que como me inspiro mucho siempre, ja ja, no me caben los dos idiomas en la descripción y tengo que ponerlo por separado en los comentarios. Para que busquen mis traducciones en los comentarios ok 😉.) Gracias a todos por el apoyo de dónde sea que me siguen, muchas gracias por el apoyo y cariño que siempre me dan!!!! 😘😘 De dónde me siguen?! Díganme! Comenta aquí abajo 👇👇👌👌#hechoenmexico ••• ENGLISH•••
Mexican I am forever and PROUDLY! This month is Hispanic heritage Month, a heritage I’m so proud about! For those of you who don’t know, I was born and raised in Mexico, in Leon Guanajuato, and I moved to the US when I was 13. Nowadays I am a US citizen, something I am very proud about as well, thanks to my grandfather being a US citizen! But he always loved his Mexico so in his honor and in honor of my roots, I will always be proud about my heritage!! 🙌🙌 If you’ve never been to Mexico, aside from the violence, I can assure you there’s no other place like it and its people are so beautiful, genuine, hard workers, warriors, and life lovers, always happy and grateful! It is an honor for me to be Hispanic, Latina, and especially Mexican! 🇲🇽🇲🇽 That’s why I always try to translate my posts in both languages! So where are you guys from?!?! Comment down below 👇👇. But just know where ever y’all are from I thank you for following me!! 😘

Next down the Red Carpet was one of our youngest clients, 16 years old Emily! Emily has always been very active and played flag football for Dr. Phillip’s High School. Last year, her all girl team were Regional Champions and came in 2nd in the state! On June 11th, just a couple weeks into her summer break, Emily was a victim of gun violence outside her Orlando home. She was shot 4 times and paralyzed from the waist down. While in the hospital, Emily was told she would never walk again but she has never given up hope and soon after her release, she began going to NextStep Orlando. Emily plans to return to school for her junior year and to be the manager of her flag football team. She will also continue going to NextStep Orlando and has her mind set on proving the doctors wrong! #champion #gunviolence #survivor #spiritday #spinalcordinjury #paraplegic #paralysis #fitness #wellness #recovery #nextsteprecovery #NextStepOrlando
