Don’t ever ring the bell…..

Below is a link to a video of Admiral William McRaven’s May 2014 Commencement speech at the University of Texas at Austin. It is the most inspirational and motivational speech I think I have ever seen – most definitely worth the 15 minutes.

My two favorites, (#1 – “Make your bed every day” and #10 – “Don’t ever ring the bell”), pretty much summarize my approach to overcoming PTSD: small accomplishments can mean a lot and don’t give up.  Of course, “get over being a sugar cookie” and “don’t be afraid of the circus” are really good too…..


Which ones are your favorites?
