1-in-100 Warrior Award: Lesley Carter

2 Mar

“Out of every one hundred men, ten shouldn’t even be there, eighty are just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle. Ah, but the one, one is a Warrior, and he will bring the others back.” ~Heraclitus

I honestly don’t know where to begin. Lesley Carter of Bucket List Publications has done and seen so much, where do I start when trying to describe this adventurous, fearless and passionate young lady? This might be a good start, a wonderful article that scratches the surface of the adventures of Lesley and her husband: http://lesleycarter.wordpress.com/2012/01/18/the-most-exciting-woman-on-earth/

For anyone that thinks they’re too “busy” to do all of the things they’ve always wanted to do, take note from Lesley. There’s almost never a valid reason or excuse to keep you from doing something you love. White-water rafting, skydiving, paragliding, bungee jumping, rock climbing, dog sledding, base jumping, kayaking, surfing, boogie boarding, rappelling, and caving, plus visiting more than 33 countries. Did she slow down after getting pregnant? Not on your life! An incredible inspiration and reminder to all of us of the potential that we have if we just turn the TV off and get out of the house. Coupled with her journals of travel is a chronicling of her spiritual growth as well; visiting new places doesn’t simply result in a hefty scrapbook, but it serves to help one grow in understanding when different ways of life are experienced first hand. I’ve greatly enjoyed reading about her travels and am grateful for all of the world’s beauty that she has shared with thousands of other WordPress readers. She’s 1-in-100, and we are lucky to have her: http://lesleycarter.wordpress.com/

    Dear Miro,

    I followed your link from a fellow Dance buddy of mine. Suneetra (http://sacrilegeofthegoddess.wordpress.com/) , whom you have awarded the 1-IN-100 WARRIOR AWARD. I have read your poem’s, and especially enjoyed the one about “Junk People”. Could I share that on my Facebook page?

    Many thanks for being an inspiration to us all!

    Sincerely yours,
