Shawn Healey | Dragon KOI Project Day 52 of 365: PERSPECTIVE

Today marks the 7 year anniversary of my Spinal Cord Injury, and I have a favorite quote to share, which means a great deal to me: "In life, you can't stop the waves from coming; but you can always learn to surf" ~ unknown...   I've shared these words with many audiences over the years, and I'm often asked how being injured has changed my life. In my heart of hearts, I respond with, "am I really injured"? If the engine rallies than what do a few dents in the body have to do with stepping on the throttle and raging toward life's unbound joy? I guess it comes down to perspective - I might sit down in waves these days, but my spirit doesn't know that. I might walk slower than my pace of yesteryear, but my life is all the fuller for it. And yes, the waves that could have pounded me to the sea floor have been heavy, but choosing to surf them is living a life full to the brim with happiness, joy and mega powerful tears of gratitude...   Today is a day no different than the other 364 annual opportunities in our lives to rise up and live our truths. Focus on all the good in your life, stand in your greatness and make today about living the brilliant zest that is being alive!!   Photo:  Shawna Korgan  | Location: Baja, mex |  Hiball Energy   Body Glove   High Fives Foundation   bigtruck brand   Spine Nevada   RhinoHub   Centurion Boats  Roswell Marine   GatorStep Marine Nonskid  | # ChoosePositivityNow.com
