Some of the Most Audacious Thrill-Seekers with Disabilities post image

When boldness strikes, it allows you to do the things you've never imagined you'll ever embark upon. It'll take you to places you've never been to.  It lets you discover a hundred things about yourself, and the challenges that you’re capable of surmounting. Being adventurous could transform you into a better person that you can be, pushing yourself to the limits and owning that three winks. Those are the seconds where you just let loose, forgetting everything and allowing that specific point to be your world- without thinking of the past and not even minding about the future. Just breathing and living for the moment. Truly, a life-changing experience.

So what do thrill-seekers achieve by being in that scenario? A lot. A heart-pumping and nerve-wracking activity actually improves blood circulation, increases strength and vigor and provides a deeper understanding of the technicalities of the said feat. Most importantly, the benefits are not only limited to those, but the advantages of overcoming your fears are unbelievably boundless. From an unparalleled ecstasy that exhilarates you, to a newfound confidence that makes you appreciate your capabilities, going through a heart-pounding task gives you a sense of accomplishment and heightens your self-worth from then on. 

While we get amazed by the adrenaline-junkies doing extreme sports and activities, the courage and determination of persons with disabilities either make us go wow or leave us speechless. Whatever our reaction may be, it will always involve pure admiration. Prepare your OMGs for these fearless dare-devils who have stepped out of their comfort zones, successfully finding satisfaction that only the brave are granted with.
