Monday Positivity

The idea of positive thinking or having a positive mentality gets a bad rep these days. Somehow, people have got in the habit of suggesting that encouragement to think positively is all a bit woowoo, that it doesn’t work (generally because they’ve failed at it at least once!)

Well, here’s living proof of the power of positive thinking – Sam Berns. The views Sam expresses here would be mature and inspiring if coming from any seventeen year-old. However, when the seventeen year-old in question suffers from the kinds of challenges this young man does, it’s worthy of attention.

Whilst watching this, it’s important to know that those suffering from Progeria generally don’t live beyond their teen years. In fact, Sam passed away not very long after this film was made. This makes his positivity even more overwhelming.

Watching this video should be guaranteed to make the coming week that bit better for all of us. If Sam could, we can.
