One of the BEST Motivational Videos I've ever seen!

I love this!  Another reminder for me to never ever give up!  Never let set backs stop me.  Keep moving forward.  (Sounds like my marathon/Ironman mantra)  Don't be afraid ask for and/or go after what I want.   I love the little boy on the bike at the end of this video.  Future triathlete? Reminds me of The Boy.

I'm so proud of The Boy for never giving up.  All the parent teacher conferences we went through from 1st grade to 12th grade.  (Having to go through 1st grade twice because we didn't know what was wrong)  Sticking with the regular academic degree even when the occupational one was suggested for him. (It would have been the easier way out of high school, but not the best and not for The Boy!)

Dealing with the bad teachers who just didn't give a crap or really didn't understand.  Luckily, the bad or uncaring teachers were in the minority in his school and he was lucky enough to have some of the best special ed teachers.  Getting the help he needed to get through school even before he was officially diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome in 8th grade.  And now he is excelling in college with very little accommodations.

He rocks!


  1. i know you are proud of him! he is going to accomplish great things.

  2. Thanks! That's sweet. I sure hope so!
