A chain-reaction collision involving a drunk driver paralyzed her from the waist down. As she explains on the show, a box of forgotten pipe wrenches slammed into her back, almost completely severing her spinal cord. Refusing the wheelchair as well as conventional wisdom, when she was ready to beat obesity, lose the bed weight (she's lost 120 lbs so far), regain her footing and the ability to walk, she didn't seek out physical therapy, she looked for a gym. She was eager and hungry to surround herself with healthy, active, and vibrant people. Author of Everyday Bliss for Busy Women, Maryam Webster is our guest.
One of her biggest A-Ha! moments came when she shifted her thinking and language from "Please God... Please God..." to "Thank you God." Gratitude, for her, made all the difference. Not only is she walking, she's dancing.
What's interesting about this story is that Maryam wasn't always a fierce game-changer. In fact, on the show, she fesses-up to list many things she's quit. It was this unbelievable (physical,emotional, and spiritual) challenge that revealed her true strength, moxie, and mission. She now teaches women how to do the impossible.
