A Positive Outlook on Recovery

Not sure if you watched the CBS Evening News last night, but their closing story showed the remarkable journey of former Olympic swimmer Amy Van Dyken Rouen. She was injured in an ATV accident over a month ago. However, her outlook on life is very encouraging.

Even though she has lost the ability to walk, she still has the motivation and determination to make the most out of her new way of living.

It’s important to note that everyone recovers at different rates. While it may seem that Amy’s recovery is going quickly, that should not discourage anyone from their own recovery process. Take your recovery one step at a time. The smallest steps toward recovery are worth the effort.

Check out Amy’s story and video below.
