Scott Sargeant: The Truth Will Set You Free
…for the last 18 years I’ve been living a lie, and I’ve been lying to you!
Some of you know that I had a tragic accident 18 years ago that left me paralyzed
from the neck down. What most of you don’t know is the truth that my ‘accident’
wasn’t an accident.
Please take 8 minutes to watch my TEDx talk to hear the truth of my story.

Thank you very much for your support.
This is no joke…
Are you taking responsibility for your life?
For your happiness?
For your health?
For your weight?
If there’s something negative about you or your experiences, it’s more convenient to blame circumstances that are seemingly beyond your control.

Feeling down about the state of the world? Go find yourself a drum circle and dance!
While out for a sunset cruise on Sunday evening – Cris and I discovered this drum circle and man it just touched me. The drums moved everyone black, white, brown…old and young alike…everyone danced! everyone dancing together to the beat of life! No barriers, no us and them just one family dancing…
It was truly beautiful #BeatGoesOn #DrumsofLife #DrumsofLove #DancingWithMyFamily #OnePeopleOnePowerOneDance
‘Over these past 12 months, all of us have learned so much about living, caring, loving and embracing the present moment’
Driving Miss Norma
Instead of undergoing cancer treatment she decided to take a road trip across the United States
Norma Jean Bauerschmidt’s travels have been followed by more than 400,000 people on the Facebook page “Driving Miss Norma”, which posted pictures and accounts of her journey.
Ms Bauerschmidt’s daughter-in-law Ramie, who set up the Facebook page, wrote that Ms Bauerschmidt had decided to take the trip last year after being diagnosed with uterine cancer and told by her doctor that surgery, radiation and chemotherapy were unlikely to treat the illness
“We found ourselves sitting in an OB/GYN office talking about treatment options,” a post read. “You know the drill: surgery, then radiation and chemo in some order. When the doctor was finished he asked her how she would like to proceed.
“A tiny woman at 101 pounds and under five-feet tall, an exhausted Norma looked the young doctor dead in the eye and with the strongest voice she could muster, said, ‘I’m 90-years-old, I’m hitting the road.'”
Ms Bauerschmidt set off from Michigan with her son Tim, daughter-in-law and their dog Ringo on 24 August 2015.
A post marking a year on the road said: “We have driven the RV nearly 13,000 miles and slept in over 75 different locations in 32 states.
“Miss Norma has experienced more ‘firsts’ than we can count. Big things, like riding in a hot air balloon or on a horse, to little things like getting a pedicure or having her first taste of key lime pie, oysters and fried green tomatoes. She has had her hair done by ten different stylists and has crossed the time zones 9 times (I think.)
“Over these past 12 months, all of us have learned so much about living, caring, loving and embracing the present moment. No matter where we are, when asked where her favorite spot has been on this trip, Norma now says, ‘Right here!’ We have also learned so much about the human spirit and the beauty of people from all over the world.”
Ms Bauerschmidt began hospice care in the town of Friday Harbour, San Juan Island, Washington – her final stop – in August when her health began to deteriorate.
The San Juan County Coroner Randall Gaylord confirmed Ms Bauerschmidt died on Friday morning.

I was inspired to write this a while ago – maybe almost a year and I figured since I’ve recently moved, that I better do it now or forget it. So here we go, hope you like it.
The Tree Outside My Window…
There’s been a tree outside my window that pretty much looks like millions of other trees of its kind on the planet. At first glance, it’s quite ordinary. Just a tree.
One day I was staring at it for a while and that’s when it hit me!
Starting at the base and working my way up, I could see how the tree would grow in a specific direction that would place it out of balance, and if it kept growing this way it could eventually fall over and die…but the tree, you see, self-corrected as it grew, always keeping in balance by stretching back towards the light of the sun…
I had this realization that helped me…I hope it may help you or someone you love.
I related to how when I find myself out of balance from time to time that there’s really only one solution “Leave It To God” and be just like the tree; you just have to trust everything will work out.
Even when we feel like we are out-of-balance or on the wrong path, if we stay focused on the light, on love, on all the good the world has to offer, like the tree you will self-correct as you grow…
I want to encourage you to take part in the International Day of Happiness 2017. On March 20th thousands of people from all around the world will come together with the focus on spreading more happiness in our world.
When you sign up on the website ( http://www.dayofhappiness.net ) you will receive three free gifts and be kept up to date on how you can participate.
I say “Think Globally” and “ACT LOCALLY”
Ask yourself, “What can you do in my home, community, work to share happiness today?”
Then take your answer and act on it!
So many people need encouragement right now. We need to remind one another of the good that is all around us right now. I hope you will join me in celebrating the International Day of Happiness!
As a man, I’m in awe of you ladies, thank you for all you do. Please enjoy this short video tribute of great quotes from great women!
