Stop Yer Belly-Aching! May 20, 2010

Posted by nrhatch in Gratitude, Happiness, Humor, Life Balance, Mindfulness.

How often do we get so tangled up in the “negatives” that we forget to look around for the positives?

Too often.

Thank you so much for sharing this! I needed it. 🙂

2. nrhatch - May 20, 2010

Excellent message of hope, inspiration, and joy!

Saw it for the first time this morning and just had to share it here.

That is amazing. Very moving.

I’m almost embarrassed to add to it, but I will anyway.

Years ago, while driving on the freeway in Northern California, feeling sorry for myself because of having a tough job and a long commute, I passed a car that had the most remarkable bumper sticker on it.

I still get a chill when I think of it today.

It said, “Look for the good, and praise it.”

What a life changer.

Sometimes the slightest shift in our perspective allows us to see life in a whole new way . . .

Thanks, Rik!

Monseigneur Pope, featured this man, (not the same video) along with other people with disabilities, on New Advent several months ago. He remains a very inspiring person, as were the other disabled artists he featured.

Somehow, he just doesn’t seem “disabled” to me . . .

In contrast to those people in life who are able-bodied and 100% disabled by their negative, self-defeating thoughts.

Loreen, I see your comments all over, but where can I find your blog?

Very humbling, I saw the video on a friend’s FB page this afternoon, and watched it with my daughter. We both ended up with tears streaming.

(That reminds me of a typo I once read “tears were strolling down my cheeks”).

nrhatch - May 20, 2010

Love that “typo” . . . tears were strolling down my cheeks. : )

7. tsuchigari - May 20, 2010

Wow. Thanks for sharing – that is a message that everyone needs to hear. Goes to show that a great attitude and roaring sense of humor can get you almost anywhere.

nrhatch - May 20, 2010

Thanks for the tips in posting YouTube videos, Jo!

This video definitely deserves to be Front and Center!

I love his sense of humor . . . it’s so cold I can’t feel my hands. : )

One of my best friends is a “thalidomide baby”. Although he is extremely disfigured by most standards he is capable of amazing tasks that would cause most people to give up. I am very grateful that God saw fit to put this man in my life as a friend and as a teacher.

nrhatch - May 20, 2010

When the student is ready . . . teachers are all around us!

9. Joanne - May 20, 2010

I’m speechless… Not many things can do that to me…!

nrhatch - May 20, 2010

I know what you mean. What an amazing man.

Most of us lose our battles with life due to the self-defeating thoughts we think. This guy is so inspiring.

10. linda - December 6, 2010

Love that video. What a wonderful man. Surely he would make a most wonderful husband for some very lucky girl. I hope that happens for him. He is simply amazing. He shows me that I whine and complain far too much. Thanks for sharing this.

nrhatch - December 6, 2010

You’re welcome. I thought you would enjoy it.

When we master our mind . . . we master our life.

11. Cities of the Mind - January 10, 2011

Yeah, that’s about the long and short of it.

nrhatch - January 10, 2011

Thanks for your post, Connor. If we have food, clothing, shelter, and companionship, we have ENOUGH.

Anything more than that is gravy.

12. eof737 - May 4, 2011

Beautiful… Glad you shared the link. Great guy all around. 🙂

nrhatch - May 4, 2011

Isn’t he!

Nevertheless, given the choice, I’d rather be me . . . I gotta be me . . . what else can I be but what I am . . .
