Mimi's advice for the day: There comes a time in life when you walk away
from all the pointless drama and the people who create it, and surround
yourself with people who make you laugh so hard that you forget the bad
and focus on the good. Life is too short to be anything but happy.

Showing just what Try Try Try Again can really do!!!!
Dan Cummings, who was paralyzed in an accident, just walked a mile to
support his non-profit Journey Forward. A decade ago, Boston man Dan
Cummings broke his neck in a diving accident. He lost the use of his
arms and legs, and was told that he would never walk again.

But he didn't believe it. He decided to move to California, where he
could take part in an intense physical therapy regime with a program
called Project Walk, which uses standing-frame therapies, electrical
stimulation, and other innovative methods to help patients regain their
motor skills. And, after four years, his exercise regime had begun to
work: he returned home to Boston, walking with the help of a walker.
Cummings' friends and relatives were amazed by the transformation that
Project Walk had made in him—and now that Cummings was walking, he had a
new resolution.

"I had a new goal to bring that program back to Boston so others
wouldn't have to move 3,000 miles away to find a place that would help
them walk," he told the Boston Herald. So two years ago, Cummings
founded a non-profit physical therapy center in his hometown, called
Journey Forward. Now, the center has five full-time specialists and 33
clients, including Matt Brown, a paralyzed teenage athlete who had
regained the ability to move his feet thanks to his sessions there.

And on Saturday, Cummings showed how far he had come in a fundraising
walk for his organization. Using his walker, he walked a full mile—and
helped to raise $75,000 in donations for Journey Forward. "Physically,
I'm beat," Cummings said after the walk, "but emotionally I feel like
I'm flying."

Fall is a great time to adopt a new friend!
