Attitude “I Know I Can Do It” Matters

I have mentioned before about the importance of having a positive outlook or proper attitude while going through recuperation. Sometimes it is easier said than done. We all know that. Everyone experiences negative emotions during life. Did you know that, however, your overall mental state determines your ultimate success. Numerous studies have shown this to be true.

Upon doing research into games for handicapped individuals, I came upon this enlightening article I wanted to share. It just goes to show the importance of maintaining the proper attitude.

Enjoy!

Hockey Day In Canada – 02/21/09

Today is Hockey Day in Canada. It is a day set aside to celebrate the grass roots level of hockey across the country of Canada. And, luckily, it is broadcast on the NHL Network.

If you have not had a chance to watch this wonderful televised event, please do. For those going through rough times (I have a tendency to get depressed over my nerve pain..how minor is that?!)…there are inspiring stories throughout this broadcast. You will see and hear about people with disabilities playing, stories of support and encouragement, and also see charity work in place.

Plus, it is just so cute to see small kids learning to play..with their equipment being bigger than they are. ๐Ÿ™‚
Another positive thing about this day is the amount of hockey history one can learn about. Woohoo!!

It is an absolutely wonderful way to spend the day. Watching hockey, seeing kids play, and seeing hockey veterans help in anyway they can. How cool….

Oh…starting at 3pm EST…it is a TRIPLE HEADER of hockey between Canadian teams. ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks NHL Network….
