I am often asked by people in my audiences – they will come up to me privately – and they may have a family member or someone they love that is injured. Perhaps, not even a spinal cord injury – something different – and they truly want to know, how do I get them out of depression? Or how do I get them active in life? How did you, Leslie, overcome these challenges? And my first heartfelt answer is faith. You have to have something that grounds you. Something that points you in the right direction. I have spent a lot of hours and a lot of time by myself and a lot of tears – trying to overcome certain obstacles in my life. And it wasn’t until I truly knew who I was and what I stood for, that I could overcome certain challenges.
