My Inspiration....

Inspiration really is everywhere.

     The other day, as I was flipping through my Vineyard Vines Summer 2016 catalog, I came across a gentlemen named Bradley Johnson.  I found his story so inspiring, that I decided to share it with all of you!

     If you have been following me for awhile, you would have seen my post  about my chronic illnesses that I choose to share back in February.  It is still one of my most viewed posts to this day.  Like Bradley Johnson, I too choose not to let my limitations stop me.

     Bradley Johnson could have chosen to feel sorry for himself, and who couldn't blame him.  Instead, he chose to excel in life not only as an attorney, but also, as a three time Paralympian in the sport of sailing.  He is the first African American to represent the United States in sailing and bring back a medal.  His positive attitude has allowed his disability to not hinder him in life.

     What Bradley Johnson said brought a smile to my face, and made my heart happy!!  He said, "My objective was to get my life as close to normal as I knew it--and I've surpassed that beyond my wildest dreams."  What amazing gentlemen with an awesome testimony.

     I am so thankful that even though I do not feel well many days, I still chose to get out of bed and conquer the day.  Thank you Bradley Johnson for sharing your story with Vineyard Vines.  Your testimony inspires me!  :)

 Watch his video below!

Until next time,

Xoxo, Natalie
