Transforming Tragedy Into Triumph: The Movement Of Hope We’ve All Been Waiting For

Grab a box of tissues and a new sense of inspiration and get ready for a documentary I am personally insanely excited for: The Motion: Gooch’s Journey.

Ryan “Gooch” Nelson is more than just a musician. He is something special. I have the pleasure of knowing him personally — we went to the same High School, have some of the same friends, and I’ve even gotten to join in on a jam session or two. There is something magical about the way he creates his music, and how it hits home to everyone who listens.

Gooch has been through some extremely trying times in his life, none of which have kept him down. A tragic accident left him paralyzed, but that didn’t stop him from pursuing his love for music. He learned to play a slide guitar across his lap…

Folks. If that doesn’t kick so much ass, I don’t know what does.

This awesome documentary (coming out in 2016) not only looks incredible, but will certainly leave you itching to get inspired and create your own happiness. His story is not only incredibly inspiring, but it goes to show that no matter what life throws at you, you can overcome anything.

So without any further ado, I leave you with the trailer to this beautiful piece that I’m beyond stoked for. Watch out for it, because it’s comin’ at ya, full speed ahead!!!!
