A True Inspiration!

Do you believe the happiness of your life has anything to do with the quality of your thoughts? Let me tell you about my friend Matt if you don't.
Several months ago I was asked to be FB friends with a guy named Matt. I was told that Matt had been in a terrible motorcycle accident in June of 2017.
As a result of that accident, Matt's wife died. If that wasn't horrific enough Matt broke 42 bones and was burned over 33% of his body. Matt spent 2 months in the Cleveland Metro burn unit, 1 month in rehab and another 9 months in therapy. At first, they were not sure that Matt would even live. Then he received the not so encouraging report it was doubtful he would ever walk again.
If there was anyone who could have fallen into a pit of self-pity you would believe it could be Matt. But that is not what Matt chose to do.
Matt worked hard in rehab and therapy. He not only lived, but he can also walk! Believe it or not, Matt went back to work this past April! How about that!
Matt put the following quote on FB. When I read the quote tears filled my eyes knowing all Matt had been through. Here's the quote:
"Train your mind to see the good in everything. Positivity is a choice. The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts."
Matt has a new goal now to write a book and share his story to help others. Most people don't like to do public speaking but Matt wants to do that too.
Does Matt believe that the happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thought? Yes, he does!
My friend Matt is a true inspiration!
