Gratitude Living

Wake up each day with a grateful heart and celebrate your blessings!  An attitude of gratitude can brighten a moment of despair and shift your perspective from being just about you to others and bigger events happenings in the world.  Who can you say “Thank You” to? Who and what are you grateful for?

“Instead of looking at our challenges and limitations as something negative or bad, we can begin to look at them as blessings, magnificent gifts that can be used to ignite our imaginations and help us go further than we ever knew we could go.”-Amy Purdy

Amy Purdy has a passion for living.  At the age of 19, she lost her legs below her knee due to bacterial meningitis.  Despite this disability Amy went on to become a professional snowboarder with leg prosthetics.

In 2005 Purdy and Daniel Gale founded Adaptive Action Sports “to help create opportunities for individuals with physical disabilities to get involved in skateboarding and snowboarding and all action sports.”

Today, she is a motivational speaker inspiring others to live beyond your limits. Amy can be seen competing live on ABC’s 18th season of “Dancing with the Stars” with professional partner Derek Hough. Tune in on Mondays at 8pm to see Amy’s soul shine.

Monday Moments-Best Day Every Day

Happy Monday!

bestdayWrite it on your heart
that every day is the best day in the year.
He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day
who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety.

Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day;
begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit
to be cumbered with your old nonsense.

This new day is too dear,
with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on the yesterdays.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
