LET'S TAKE STOCK!

I read a post on Natalie's Party Planner blog this morning. This specific post, My Inspiration made me take some stock, one has to do it from time to time. In her post she was taking stock of how many little things cross her path everyday, and how these small and sometimes insignificant things inspire her. It sure made me think. Please also visit Natalie's site, you will love it.

I have posted this video before, but I thought it is maybe a great time to post it again. So to those who have seen it before, I do apologize. To those who haven't seen it before, it will serve to remind us all how much we have to say thank you for.
Every time I watch this, I get a lump in my throat, but it sure makes me appreciate what I have in life. Even if it is not a lot, I have a reasonably healthy body, a fantastic family, and a pretty easy life.



How to you feel about this lady? Isn't she something else? Now I hope this video will make you all feel better about what you got dealt in life. Maybe not the body or face, or boobs to die for, or the eyes you wanted, but when next you feel unhappy about your body, think back to this girl, and the way she handles her life without arms.

Have a lovely day everyone!

I can´t believe what I am seeing. She is amazing. How can she do so many things with her feet? It is a true example to follow.

I truly love you for posting this, Colin! Far too often we take things in our lives for granted. To see someone who is so full of life, active, and happy, regardless of the fact that she is without arms, really makes you take a step back and re-evaluate how you view the world. Beautiful video! :)

I am a firm believer that we are happiest when we look at what we have and don't waste time thinking about what we don't have. I'm in awe of people like this, because they have been dealt such a tough lot and yet they approach life in way that is such much more positive than people who seem to have everything. To be like that is truly a miracle and an inspiration for us all.

Are you kidding me! Damn, that's amazing. Inspirational! She does more w/out arms than most people do with all their appendages.

This makes me take stock, but more a kick in the pants, so to speak.

Olá! Sou Jefhcardoso do http://jefhcardoso.blogspot.com e estou indo de blog em blog para conhecer mundos.
Num desses passeios encontrei os blogs femininos e achei interessante a grande quantidade de seguidores e o trabalho muito profissional destes blogs.
Pensei: _Será que moças vaidosas curtem literatura?! Afinal muitas são blogueiras e quase todas são dadas a leitura...
Decidi então entrar em contato com as seguidoras, seguidas, e contatos, a fim de descobrir se meu blog de contos é capaz de agradar essas moças vaidosas e tal.
Agradeço a atenção e quero a sua opinião. Abraço!
