Picture yourself traveling by air. You have a carry-on baggage and get to your assigned seat. You open the compartment above your seat and a guy stares at you and wonders why you didn’t knock first.
You almost have a heart-attack!
This is not some fiction I’m making up. It really happened! The guy playing the trick was Nick Vujicic. He’s the young man born without limbs. Have you heard about him? Maybe you have seen some videos on You Tube .
I’m reading his book Life Without Limits, Inspiration for a Ridiculously Good Life.
The above episode is hilarious. In Africa he went on a carousel ride. He got his caregiver to plop him down next to a nice big suitcase.
“Off I went with the rest of the bags and cases. I rode the wild carousel through the terminal, making like a statue, wearing my sunglasses, and drawing shocked stares, pointed fingers, and nervous laughter from other travelers, who weren’t sure if I was (a) a real person, or (b) the world’s most handsome duffel.”
The book is published by Doubleday. Do get it and read for yourself his inspiring story and the motivation he gives to live a life without limits.
Next time you travel by air, knock before you open an overhead bin. You never know! Nick might be taking a nap in it!
