Prosthetic Lego Leg is no toy

Christina Stephens’ Lego leg creation is way above and beyond the little piddly Lego projects most of us are familiar with or have done ourselves.  At least the ones I remember building with my brothers years ago.  Christina’s project has a useful purpose. I like her sense of humor.  Not only did she video herself making her prosthetic Lego leg, but if you will notice, on her “biological” leg, she has a tattoo on the calf that has a question mark pointing to her missing leg.  Being able to laugh at yourself is a trait that few have mastered. I’ve often noticed that those who laugh at themselves and don’t take themselves too seriously, have a tendency to be happier individuals than those who can’t or choose not to. 

Prosthetic Lego Leg

Do you have a disability?  Allow it to enable your creativity Some of us have physical  disabilities, while others struggle with internal or mental disabilities. Or emotional disabilities. (Make me feel better, and tell me that you have them, too.) Scars. Wounds. Missing pieces.

The thigh of Christina’s biological leg has a tattoo that says, “One Life.”  She is obviously carpeing her diem, which should be a reminder to people everywhere. What an amazing inspiration!
