Focus on What You CAN Do, Not on What You Can't

When life gets us down it’s so easy to give into the negative spiral that leads to the couch, Netflix, chocolate, or our beds.

In this week’s blog, I talk about how shifting our perspective can have huge benefits. And I’ve included an inspirational video of my wheelchair dog to show the possibilities when we choose not to give up.
