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.
If you find it to be inspiring and valuable, please share it for others to
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.

‘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.

The Meaning by Jim Carrey.
I found this beautiful and inspiring. Jim Carrey is not only an amazing talent but an example of what is possible for each of us. You’re gig might not be movies or comedy but within there is something so unique that you are the only one of it in the entire world.
In this short video he share’s his journey, and lays it out not for bragging rights or ego but show what is possible when you find the right meaning.
Did you know at one point he wrote himself a check for $10 million dollars for “acting services rendered” and he dated it 5 years in the future and then three years later got paid $10 million dollars for the movie “Dumb and Dumber” (Not my favorite movie but still funny).
