Amy’s amazing health story

I was catching up with my YouTube subscriptions and I spotted a really helpful video that I thought I would share, in case anyone finds it interesting.

Amy was told when she was 16 that, due to osteoporosis, she would likely need a wheelchair full-time by the time she was 25. Last year, when she was 19, she decided to become vegan, and after only a few months, she was able to go back to work, where previously she had been off work sick. Also, when she saw doctors about 6 months ago, they said she wouldn’t need a wheelchair until she was at least 60.

I’m so pleased for her! Being told such devastating news at a young age must have been so hard, but it’s great that through changing her diet to vegan, she’s managed to improve her health and her life so much!

I’m not here to try and convert anyone, I just wanted to share in case this was useful, plus with all of the doom and gloom in the news, it’s nice to see a happy story  🙂

Quote of the day: 7th February 2016

The happiest people don’t necessarily have the best of everything but they make the most of everything.

I have been guilty of “all or nothing” thinking. Throughout my life I have been of the opinion, ‘if everything isn’t 100% happy in my world, then nothing is happy in my world’. This kind of thinking is so destructive and leaves you with a false sense of what your life actually is like right now.

Recently, our life has been negative in so many ways, but I have had an epiphany this weekend, and much like Howard Beale’s character in the film Network (1976) reminds us, I am reminding myself (and anyone else who needs reminding),

“I’m a human being, god-dammit! My life has value!”

Craft ideas I can’t wait to get stuck into

I have been a craft fan as long as I can remember but life has a habit of getting in the way of hobbies, and before you know it, you haven’t crafted anything in aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaages. I have found a few ideas online that I’m so excited to try so I thought I’d share them with you!

I know that now that we are heading towards winter, the thought of spring is far, far away. This post on Twitter has made me feel all spring-like and I can’t wait to do this in my garden 🙂

Song Of The Day: Rudimental – Waiting All Night ft. Ella Eyre

I think I’m on replay number 5 now. Love it! It’s such an inspirational video. No matter how bad things get, never give up!

The YouTube info says, “The official video for ‘Waiting All Night’ is the inspirational true life-story of San Francisco born BMX champion and actor – Kurt Yaeger, who became an amputee after an accident in 2006. All the characters in the clip are pro bmx’ers and the real friends of Kurt.”
