My guest today is Riona Kelly.
At the start of 2015, Riona was married to her then-husband of 14 years and had 4 wonderful children. However, in March Riona’s world would change in the blink of an eye.
Riona suffered a spinal stroke and at that moment became paralysed. Riona’s pain didn’t end there. Shortly after her stroke, Riona’s then-husband left her to fend for herself and her 4 young children.
However, this story is not about doom and gloom. In part 1 Riona shares some of her experiences with me, the blessing in disguise when her husband left, the practice of positive self-talk and self-love, and the steely determination to walk again. She put her body through hell to finally take her first steps.
Riona’s story is not a solo effort though. In life, it is important to be around positive influencing people. In the midst of despair, Riona reached out for help and found a personal trainer, and former professional Rugby league player Keith Mason to answer her call.
Unknown to both of them, Keith would become a pivotal player not only in Riona’s bid to build her strength back but also in finding true love.
Riona’s faith in God is unquestionable and she believes that the challenges on her path have shown how resilient she is. Riona inspires many people all over the world and is now the happiest she has ever been.
