We’re all guilty of feeling a little too sorry for ourselves from time to time. Whether we complain about the weather, about the bus being full, about the shop being out of our favourite sweets or about pints being too dear, we all have a little moan about things now and again.
At one time or another, things like this can appear to be of monumental importance. But if you were to step foot inside Straight Blast Gym (SBG) Inchicore this morning, you would realise that most of the challenges we face aren’t challenges at all. Most of the obstacles we see in our way aren’t really any hindrance.
It can be tough to admit to that, but often times it’s true. If you wanted to see true adversity, SBG was the place to go. This afternoon, the gym was the location for a martial arts seminar delivered to members of Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Ireland (SBHI), a voluntary organisation that spreads awareness about these two conditions.
