This journey, this trip, this road called amputation is not an easy one. It is full of uphill battles, but by keeping a positive attitude, it can be made into a little easier. A positive attitude can jumpstart your life into one of “I can” instead of “I can’t”. With a positive attitude you can leap over those hills on your prosthesis. Saying you can do something is the first step of that journey, next you have to try, and finally believe in yourself. Yes, it is a leap of faith, but with a positive attitude, you can do it. If you fail, try again, for it is not how many times you fail, but that you don’t let your failures stop you from trying. When that doctor says you are going to lose a limb or limbs, don’t dwell on what you lose, but accept it and use your willpower and attitude to overcome any obstacle. Having a positive attitude has to come from the inside. You can’t just depend on your friends and family to “magically” supply you with it. But once others see that positivity flowing through you, it will have an impact on them also. For if you want a miracle, be the miracle.
