Thanks, Mudders.. I've never seen that before.. great way to start the day !! biggrin.gif

It is crazy how many of us able bodied, healthy people spend so much time complaining about our circumstances.. even people who do have some health issues have no cause for the amount of complaining and self pity that they do. We all need regular doses of perspective to keep us on track.. it shouldn't need to be this way, but it does in this modern society where things quickly lose their persepctive and meaning.

It's like playing guitar... staying positive takes practice and dedication too smile.gif

Great vid smile.gif It's easy to lose perspective. It's handy to have it reset. This resets it real quick. This guy has no arms or legs so what are we really complaining about?

He brings up some really good point too. Especially for girls who often feel devalued if they aren't super model pretty.

Yes, definitely important to watch this from time to time. We often forget how lucky we are in general, and only think about the bad stuff. sad.gif
