In this extraordinary episode #83 of the Thriving Minds podcast with Kurt Fearnley AO. He asks us to think about who we are?
Are you the type of person that gives blood once a month.?
Are you the person that runs next door to help someone in need?
Do you listen to others?
Are you a paralympian representing your country?
Are you getting up everyday when you don't want to?
Even if you do this for 1% of your life, you are making a big difference.
Kurt Fearnley, AO is an Australian wheelchair racer, who has won gold medals at the Paralympic Games and 'crawled' the Kokoda Track. He has a congenital disorder called sacral agenesis which prevented fetal development of certain parts of his lower spine and all of his sacrum. In his Paralympic Games career he has won with thirteen medals (three gold, seven silver and three bronze). He won a gold and silver medal at the 2018 Commonwealth Games and was the Australian flag bearer at the closing ceremony.
At this extraordinary time in history. What a great time to reflect on this question. Would you stay in Australia to fight if you had to? What does it mean to be Australian? All this and more in the episode that left me thinking. Who am I?
