Lisa and Jim's Northern Nevada Real Estate Blog: When You Fall You Get Back Up an online video made me cry.

When You Fall You Get Back Up an online video made me cry.

Thanks for the wonderful moment! It's so easy when we are into ouselves and feeling "sorry" to forget the blessings we have. Yes ... this made me cry and it was wonderful to experience the emotion. Here is somene who has a real "problem" and he's living life and grateful for the ability to do that! God Bless Him!  And God bless You for sharing this great information!


I don't think I am too different than many folks when I state that 2008 was a monumentally tough year.  It was hard on me emotionally on both business and personal levels and most of my clients, friends and family members have expressed the same. 

Having spent much time picking myself back up after repetitive knock downs, I can find myself losing the energy to get up.  It is easy to get wrapped up in one's own personal crisis du jour and to forget that everyone has problems and many of them are far more impacting than your own. 

This story is about a person who has a problem more significant than anything I can imagine, but he didn't stay down.  He never gives up and in fact, he goes forth and tells everyone that they shouldn't allow themselves that failure either. 

I have never met this man, in fact, until I was sent a link to his video by my manager at Park Square Realty, Westfield, MA I had never even heard of him:  his name is Nick Vujicic, he is a 25 year old man who was born without limbs.  His calling is to travel the world to inspire people to overcome challenges.  His website, whether you are of religious mind or not, is more than inspiring.

This video was sent to me by my office manager.  I watched it today several times in awe as this young man works to inspire others when it would have been so much easier to give up.  He won't give up and he is showing me that I am not willing to, either.   I hope you find some inspiration here, as well.

Lisa, thanks for sharing. I was literally in tears watching this. This is truly awesome and inspiring. Can't complain with what I have. But will have to build up my reserve of positive thoughts and determinarion.

Pacita - wasn't this wonderful?  Thanks again to Lesley for bringing it to our attention. I shared it with many in my office and family ... it was well received by all.

Lisa, Makes our everyday issues and problems pale in comparison, doesn't it? Thank you for sharing this man and his story.

Debi - I can always remember my grandma saying to me to "count my blessings",.  My grandma was a real sensible woman raised in hard times and genuinely full of gratitude for the bounty that was bestowed on her. 

That is a good lesson for us all!
