You can do anything you put your mind to – ANYTHING!

This 47-year-old once-disabled veteran decided not to believe what people told him and not give up.

We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. And, hopefully, you had the opportunity to reflect and really take some time to experience what Thanksgiving is all about - being thankful for what you have, the people you're surrounded by and the freedoms you're able to experience. And, learning that you can do more than what others may tell you or what you may even believe at that very point in time.

This morning's Monday Morning Motivator is in that same vein. This 47-year-old once-disabled veteran decided not to believe what people told him and not give up. He fell numerous times. Yet, he conquered what seemed to be the impossible, step by step.

Be thankful for your family, friends, health and everything else you have. And, by all means, don't let anyone ever tell you that you can't do anything. You can do anything you put your mind to - ANYTHING!

Special thanks to our service men and women for serving our country and their sacrifices.

Here's to a week filled with appreciation and making the impossible possible.

This is a inspirational blog. It really makes me think about what I'm thankful for, and what I should be thankful for.

Thanks so much for the feedback Sonia. Really appreciate it! We all get caught up in the daily grind many times so it's also good to "stop and smell the roses" and take that step back to see how fortunate we all really are. Have a great day!
