TED Talk Takeaways: Living Beyond Limits

Amy Purdy – Living Beyond Limits

If your life were a book, and you were the author, how would you want your story to go?

As Amy Purdy traumatically lost both her legs, she asked herself the questions of how she was going to do those things she had wanted to do, like travel the world like how she wanted and snowboard again? She escaped reality for months, but she knew she had to move forward, to let go of the old self and learn to embrace the change.

“Our borders and obstacles can only do 2 things. Stop us in our tracks or force us to get creative and believe in the possibilities. Our imaginations can be used as tools for breaking through borders, because in our mind we can do anything and be anything. It is believing in our dreams, and facing our fears head on that allows us to live our lives beyond our limits.

Maybe instead of looking at our challenges and our limitations as something negative/bad, we can begin to look at them as blessings. It’s not about breaking down borders, but breaking out of them, and seeing what amazing places they might bring us.”
