THE FIERCE FIVE AMY PURDY QUOTES

I’ve fallen in awe with Amy Purdy this season on Dancing with the Stars.  And you should too.  She lost her legs below the knee at the age of 19 after contracting bacterial meningitis.  But she didn’t let that stop her.  She has gone on to be an Olympic Adaptive Snowboarder, motivational speaker, and so much more.  You can see my full story in FIERCE FEMALE AMY PURDY.  I was so inspired by her each week on DWS that I went online and watched some of her motivational speeches which is how I compiled a few of my favorite and inspiring quotes below.  See “LIVING BEYOND LIMITS” AMY PURDY AT TEDxORANGECOAST and AMY PURDY “GREETING ADVERSITY” POPTECH 2012

THE FIERCE FIVE AMY PURDY QUOTES

#1  “Embrace what makes you unique and an entire universe of possibility will open up to you.”

#2  “When adversity comes knocking on the door, smile and welcome this unwanted guest like the gift that it truly is……When you greet adversity with acceptance you will only grow stronger, and that is when we get to meet the real superhero, the one that grows inside our soul.”

#3  “Our borders and our obstacles can either stop us in our tracks or force us to get creative.”

#4  “If my life were a book and I am the author, how would I want to go?”

#5  “And then I began to daydream….I imagined myself walking gracefully, helping other people through my journey, and snowboarding again.  I didn’t just see it…I felt it!  The wind against my face, the beat of my racing heart as if it were happening in that very moment.”
