What a “Butterfly Child” can teach all of us

I feel moved, inspired, humbled, grateful, ashamed, and blessed and countless other feelings after watching this video.
Warning: Many of the scenes are  intense. You may want to preview it before showing it to your children.

How do you feel after watching?

“Jonathan has helped eliminate any excuse you or I have or ever will come up with. An amazing soul no doubt, and he have done us a great favor by sharing his story and example with us.

One of the examples we can take away from Jonathan when we think things are getting a little tough is Jonathan’s “trick” to push himself through and past his pain threshold.

He called it going into The Void.

When Jonathan starts hitting his pain threshold, he steps into that dark room where there is a little candle flickering. He pours all his pain into that candle flame. That flame is his will and determination.

The more he feeds it the more powerful the flame of his will and determination get. Then eventually, he gets past the pain point, the pain dissipates and he can step out of The Void and back into reality.

You can use this “trick” anytime you hit your figurative wall too!”

Quote and Question: Personal Calling

“I’ve come to believe that each of us has a personal calling
that’s as unique as a fingerprint – and that the best way
to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way
to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard,
and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you.”
–Oprah Winfrey
