NieNie Dialogues

I'm sure many of you have heard of the amazing woman Stephanie Nielson of Utah. In August 2008, Stephanie and her husband were involved in a nearly fatal plane crash. They both survived, miraculously, but not without injury. Both Stephanie and Mr. Neilson (as she fondly refers to him) were on the receiving end of third degree burns and Stephanie was even in a coma for 3 Months. As a mother of four young children, you can imagine the obstacles she would be facing upon waking up in a hospital bed and her entire life changing.

But don't be sad for NieNie. Instead, read, watch, and listen to her story... be inspired. I've only been reading her blog for the past year or so, but it was a tweet by my friend Lindsey that directed me to this video, which I seemed to have missed. The entire 8 minutes is just overwhelmingly inspiring. To know their entire life has changed, but she has overcome the initial shock and she's decided to share her story with the world. Oprah has even had the pleasure of sitting with this amazing woman.

I feel so incredibly privileged to just watch this video and read her blog. The way she is able to handle herself is just incredible. She doesn't let her bad days overpower her. Instead, she acknowledges her feelings and she pushes forward. A lesson I think we could all take from her.

Just watch this little video. Regardless of where you find yourself on the religion scale, you can take so incredibly much from this video. Then visit Stephanie's blog by CLICKING HERE.

I hope you were able to see what I saw. Thanks to Lindsey for sharing the video on Twitter. Here's another blog to add to your blog roll! Enjoy!
