The Little Big Things is written by the amazing Henry Fraser and we follow his story from the tragic accident which he had on his first holiday with his friends which left him with life changing injuries.
Henry is brutally honest about the impact his injuries and recovery has had on his life and his family and friends. He reflects the guilt his friends and he has for these changes. You will find during reading this book, you will go through pretty much all of the emotions, but when I finished I was hopeful and inspired at the courage Henry had with making big changes in his life. He has gone from a rugby player to being an amazing artist a skill that he did not really know he had. Henry’s art work is spectacular and should not be missed.
What I appreciated the most was Henry talking about the ongoing brutal rehabilitation and his determination to become as independent as he possibly can and not be so reliant of his family, friends or others involve in his care. I admired this quality about him his determination to keep things moving on, and respecting and being motivated by the smallest improvement. What I learned from reading this book, was the smallest improvement can have the most powerful impact on motivation and courage.
This book I have passed on to others, as I believe that Henry’s strong self belief can be used by all.
About the Book
Henry Fraser was 17 years old when a tragic accident severely crushed his spinal cord. Paralysed from the shoulders down, he has conquered unimaginable difficulty to embrace life and a new way of living.
“Until now I hadn’t really been mentally or physically robust enough to take in what that all meant. But, as a fog lifted and the permanence of my disability hit home, I made up my mind to shake things up a bit, I didn’t tell anyone; instead, I sharpened my resolve and over the coming days working just that bit harder, pushing myself that bit further.”
