The Sky is the Limit is a compilation of the actual inspiring posts that tell the story of how the crushing blow from a random boulder taught this Mother/ Daughter team not how to face death but how to choose to fully live! A journey of inspiration and discovery like no other! On February 19, 2016, Meridith’s youngest daughter Schuyler, a recent graduate from Yale, was crushed by a boulder while traveling in Colombia, South America. The doctors weren’t sure that they could keep her alive long enough for Meridith to get down there. On that plane, Meridith realized that she had to make a decision. She could let those circumstances define her forever as “the mother of a child who was crushed by a boulder” — or she could dig deep within herself and become the reluctant hero that her daughter needed. Rather than use her posts as opportunities to spread despair, Meridith filled her updates with the encouragement for others to fulfill their dreams and evolve into the best version of themselves. It’s a testimony that we don’t succeed in spite of our boulders. It’s our boulders that inspire us to learn just how high we can soar.
