My mission statement~

I intend on "trying" to live a life that is about: not putting in my mouth things that are bad for me or have come from an animal that was treated cruely while alive on this earth and during slaughter, creating lasting fond memories for my children and grandchildren, adventure, challenging myself, respect others regardless of species, race, color or creed, taking risks, having fun, being grateful, respecting myself & my body, being authentically myself, taking responsibility for my actions, being proactive, being a problem solver, taking action, introspection, transition, change, honesty, growth, loving & helping others, having integrity, doing my best, being easy on myself, enjoying this world, becoming well read, seeing the wonder of it all and never allowing fear to hold me back!

A perfect example of a great human being..........

I first saw Patrick on the home makeover show. Then this morning he was on the hour of power. He is such an inspiration. I ordered his book just now. I love his main philosophy:
"Focus on your abilities, not what society say's is your disabilities"
Enjoy below:
video's about him.






Happy Sunday Y'all! Have a super great week!
Peace, HeidiHo;)

Isn't it wonderful how this boy's father stood by him, encouraging him to reach his full potential? They are both truly inspirational. Thank you.
