Snow dog ❄

spring is beautiful, summer is hot, fall is relaxing, but winter is just flat out cold. it's no wonder most furry friends enjoy this season more than any other. @super_scooty appears to be having the time of his life while leaving his mark in the snow. we should all enjoy our lives while trying our hardest to leave our marks on this planet. strapping on whatever devices or accessories necessary, each and every one of us has the potential to leave a mark.

Humor is life 😆 .
how important is it to have a good sense of humor when adapting to a new lifestyle!? i think most of us know just how important it is. new challenges come with all kinds of moments, hurdles, ups and downs.
will you make your moments fun and light like dominick @dadowning !? 😎❤️ he’s obviously got his sense of humor intact and it’s a beautiful thing!
let’s all remind ourselves how short life is and how important laughter is for our soul! when you fall down, don’t hate on yourself, smile and get back up. falling is just a part of life, you choose how you deal with those moments. we hope you do it with a smile on your face! ❤️😎💥 ———————————————————

the best practice requires repetition and a sense of humor. 🤪

🥈 greek freak #2 🥇 "3 years ago i had a car accident and i lost my legs. i tried to get well soon. i didn’t give up. (2018) i represent greece in the european championship with the 2nd place in men’s 200m t62, 2nd place with a time of 24.43 as a personal best and the 5th place at long jump.
my dream is to represent greece in the paralympic games & of course give courage, power and faith to other people.. to make them believe to themselves." stelios your dedication and accomplishments are admirable! 👏 keep pushing the limits and you'll be able to represent greece in the next paralympics and we will all be cheering you on! 🙌 you have already accomplished more in 3 years post injury than most people do in a lifetime! keep striving for more greatness stelios! 🏆🇬🇷 #repost @stelios_malakopoulos

πέρασαν τρία χρόνια από τις 28 αυγούστου του 2015 και το ατύχημα που μου άλλαξε τη ζωή. σήμερα, τρία χρόνια μετά, είμαι κάτοχος 2 μεταλλίων στο πανευρωπαϊκό πρωτάθλημα και παγκόσμιου ρεκόρ στο άλμα εις μήκος τ62.

θέλω να ευχαριστήσω την οικογένεια μου , τους φίλους και τη σύντροφό μου, ανθρώπους που μου στέκονται και με στηρίζουν από την αρχή. ακόμη, τον προπονητή μου δημήτριο τσιφτσόγλου, καθώς και τον τεχνικό προσθετικών μελών Άγγελο χρονόπουλο, που δίνει μια συνεχή τεχνολογική μάχη ώστε να βρίσκομαι σε θέση να αγωνίζομαι σε υψηλό επίπεδο. τέλος, ένα μεγάλο ευχαριστώ στους προσωπικούς μου χορηγούς καε παοκ και watt+volt που δείχνουν εμπιστοσύνη στο πρόσωπο μου και με στηρίζουν εξαρχής οικονομικά και ηθικά.

στα στραβά της ζωής, επιλέγω να χαμογελάω στραβά. παντού, ακόμα και στα σκοτεινότερα, κρύβεται μια ευκαιρία για μια καινούρια αρχή.

σε άλλες νίκες. σας ευχαριστώ όλους μέσα από την καρδιά μου.

🤷‍♀️ impossible is nothing 🖐

just wow! 😮 nicole has not only proven herself wrong but she is also showing the world 🌏 that anything is possible. she is a beautiful woman, wife, and she is adaptive! this goes out to everyone that's had to adapt to anything in life, nothing is impossible! just as nicole taught herself to braid her her hair you too can achieve your goals. 🏅


repost: @niicoleedge
hey! i’m nicole, i was born with 1 hand. i always thought it would be impossible for me to braid, curl or just simply style my hair growing up. i had to prove myself wrong and show myself that i can do anything such as braiding my hair, which i never thought would be possible.

- what more can you ask josh to do? 🤔 after suffering a spinal injury as well as having his right leg amputated he is still striving to be an adaptive athlete. he's not only part of a para climbing team 🥇 but he's also a proud husband and father 👪. you're an incredible role model and continue kicking a*s in all that you do josh!

making up some core activation exercises to train without the ankle... climbing is meant to be all about agility, balance and coordination - the fundamental abc’s.... here i worked on balance and coordination. kneeling on a gym ball with no support got my core working and then i actively worked to put myself off balance to work coordination.
in the photo i’m using a brushing poll to see how many holds i can reach and how far i can stretch and twist to reach further.
other variations included balancing with eyes closed and juggling. •

🇺🇸thank you🇺🇸
.
veterans are the living testament of sacrifice. 🇺🇸
thank a veteran today for their service to our country and for allowing us all the freedoms we daily take for granted. thank them for taking on one of the most difficult tasks in the world, sacrificing oneself for the good of the whole. today remember that it’s these individuals who are the reason for your ability to live freely in ways millions and billions wish they could. thank a veteran for being who they are, because they took care of us and it’s time we took better care of them. .
🇺🇸 help our veteran initiatives by purchasing from one of our veteran november partners @forzagen & @themiamibarbellclub and help us feed and clothe homeless veterans this holiday season!! 🇺🇸❤️🙏🏼

Just keep swimming
this is what we're all about 👊. @tidewateradaptive is a nonprofit organization that is assisting kids with disabilities to learn how to swim and enjoy the pool 🏊‍♀️. everyone should be able to jump in the water and enjoy one nature's most beautiful elements, water 🌊! #repost @tidewateradaptive
