Watch a Young Man With No Forearms and One Leg Crush It on the Drums

I have come to the conclusion that being disabled is merely a state of mind and can be overcome, at least to some degree. Any disability will only limit you as much as you allow yourself to be limited. After watching Cornel Hrisca-Munn in the below video, I will never say the words 'I can't' ever again.

Talk about turning a negative into a positive...Deb Cohan might just be my new hero. Cohan recently made a brave decision to have a major life-altering surgical procedure, a double mastectomy. I cannot even fathom the amount of courage it took to make that decision.

Johnson’s Doesn’t Want Moms to Forget That They Are Doing Ok in Heartwarming New Ad

The best years of my life were spent as a stay at home mom. I will forever cherish those beautiful, blessed moments with my babies. I sometimes wish I could go back to those days, not to change anything but to appreciate them more. Now, when I try to call them and they don't pick up or I try to schedule time with them but they are too busy, I wish I had realized how wonderful those moments of singing, playing, crying, changing and feeding were before they were gone.But, isn't that how life is......

I recently saw this ad and I had to rewind it to watch it again and again, with a tissue.

What Would Happen If You Stopped Sleeping?

I can remember being so bummed when I looked at my work schedule and it stated that I had to arrive at work at 10:30am. When I was in college, I worked as a server at Chi Chi's Mexican Restaurant. The opening server had to start brewing the coffee before the lunch crowd came to satisfy their midday hunger pains. Each time I had to open, I was miserable. It was way too early for me to get up. At that time, I had no idea what my work life would be like today.
