Threading Straws Together

Hey everybody! A friend of mine shared this awesome video with me, and I thought it was definitely worth sharing with all of you. It is a little long, so I'm going to keep the text short in an attempt to encourage you to watch through the end.

Janine Shepherd had hopes of becoming an Olympian. She had always thought of her body as a machine; her athleticism defined her. But, of course, her life took an unexpected turn when, out on a bike ride, she was hit by a truck. Her machine was broken and would never be the same.

Watch this wonderful TED Talk to see what Janine did with her life. It's pretty amazing.

You are not your body!

Have a fantastic weekend, everyone! Don't forget to push yourself out of your comfort zone every once in a while. :)
