Woody’s Words -Week 31 – Woody is Too Positive

Woody's Words

Woody the Safety Bloke talks about his attitude to his situation!!

Good day everyone, Woody again, hey listen I had a letter from site that I worked at last year. I just wanted to share a bit of it with you, I went through and it said look James thanks very much for sharing your story with our people, it’s had a pretty big impact and it’s make people think about some of the choices they make and take a little bit of personal responsibility for their own safety but one of the criticisms about my presentations or my chats were that I seem to be a little bit too positive. 

Now I just want to try and address that in some way, I mean, I am who I am, I’m James and don’t get me wrong, I hate the fact that I’ve a hurt at work, I hate the fact that I have to get around in a wheelchair but there’s nothing I can do about it so I’m not going to let those thing, you know, really get to me. 

I get angry, I get pissed off, I get frustrated but I’m still alive, I mean you think about it, I could have been killed when I had my accident. My mom could be coming and putting a bunch of flowers on a big mound of dirt or I could have broken my neck and being a quadriplegic instead of just a… you know not been able to use my legs. 

So if I do come across as been a little bit positive, it’s because of the fact that I’m still here. I mean, you know, life is short you know, if we’re lucky we get to spend 70 or 80 years on this earth and you know I have to get around a little bit differently and it really pisses me off but I’m still here and I’m going to enjoy it. So I’m pretty positive, pretty happy that I’m still here but I the fact that I’ll get around using the wheelchair, so deal with it people, I’m woody, stay safe Australia.
