Lizzy is a big motivation to a lot of people, most people are waiting for the perfect time to make it, but Lizzy was left in a bad accident that left her paralyzed about nine years ago, but she is not given up
I found her Instagram page and wanted to share her story with the world
“Prior to the accident, I was a happy teenager who had dare-I-say everything I needed. I had my parents’ love and was studying to be a nurse. I remember some called me happy, bubbly, cheesy, cute, nice, smart, conversationalist and so on.
I was that girl on Hi5 (the pre-facebook social networking website) who had the uncountable number of friends, and changed her profile picture just about every week. I loved getting dolled up, looking my best, taking pictures and knew how to have fun.”
You know you’ve made the right decision when there is peace in your heart. Stop listening to what the world says you should do. Start listening to your own heart. There are only a few people in this world who will stay completely true to you, and YOU should be one of them. Listen to your own voice, your own soul. Too many people listen to the noise of the world, instead of themselves and what the spirit of God is telling them. #ImpossibleIsNothing #HappySunday 📸@damellphotography 💄@flawlesstouchmakeover
March 23, 2008 – The date of the car accident that put me on this wheelchair. 9 years today… and I'm still here pushing through life and keeping the faith that I'll one day walk again. I have good and bad days just like everybody. Most of my bad days aren't even related to #SpinalCordInjury or being a wheelchair user. Life happens and we all go through the motions. With God I've been able to see this day as a day to celebrate this life I'm blessed with. I wanted to make a blog post or a YouTube video about how I feel today, but instead I have a different kind of video coming up on my YouTube channel soon. Click the link in my bio to make sure you're subscribed on YouTube. #ImpossibleIsNothing 👌
This are Lizzy’s word
“On Sunday, March 23rd 2008, after spring break, I packed my things, and went to the living room to bid my parents farewell before going back to school. Before I got into the car, I got quite indecisive and even asked my parents if they thought it was a good idea to drive. After some time had passed, I decided to call a friend, who was also going to school, so we could drive in a convoy. We planned to meet each other at a gas station, to embark on our three and a half to four hour journey from Texas to Oklahoma. When I got there, I still felt uneasy and even contemplated leaving my car at the gas station for my dad to pick up. But when I thought about having to keep asking people for rides at school, I decided to get over “this back-and-forth” crap, and get in my car already.
The drive began and I had some Sammie Okposo playing in the car. I started singing “Jesus I thank you, Wellu Wellu, You do well for me, Wellu Wellu … I no know wetin I do, Wey make you love me so”. Not too loud, not too low, just something to keep me awake. I drove behind my friend, and everything appeared fine. I wasn’t drunk, talking on the phone, or doing one of those driving don’ts.I later learned from my friend that about 30 to 40 minutes to our destination, she looked back in her rear mirror, and saw my car flipping. The cops at the scene and everyone who “witnessed” the whole situation couldn’t explain what happened or caused the accident, as my car was the only one involved. My car flipped over for about 4 times, and it was up-side-down when the ambulance and helicopter crew got there.
