Rugby Jones: A Kid at Heart

rugby jonesNow that you found me, I want to tell you more ABOUT me… Rugby Jones! You do want to know more… right? Well, I am a very cool dude because I get kids. I mean I really get kids. Kids go through a lot in their lives and sometimes adults forget that but Rugby Jones doesn’t!

Sure. You may be thinking that I’m JUST a dog and what does a dog know about kids? Well it’s way more complicated than that. It’s also about how kids react to me. They think I am way cool and because of that they listen to what I have to say. I bet your kids don’t always listen to you because after all, you’re an adult. Kids know that adults don’t always get what’s going on with them even though they try. That’s where I come in.

Okay… I’ll fill you in on some of my story. That way you will understand why I am such a cool dude and why I can help kids who need their self-esteem boosted. From my picture, you can see that I use a wheel chair but it wasn’t always that way. I had a spinal cord injury and lost the use of my back legs. After the accident, I had to drag myself around with my front legs. I got picked on and laughed at and I was very sad. I felt sorry for myself because I wasn’t the same any more. I was different and couldn’t run or play with the others. At that time, I believed that my life would never be good again.

Then one day my human mom got me a wheelchair. She helped me learn how to use it and then little by little my life started to get better. I began to understand that if I worked hard with my wheelchair, my muscles would get stronger and so would I. I love my wheelchair so much that I gave it a name. I named it “Zoomie.”

Now my life is great because I can run and I can play and I can stand up for myself. That’s because I believe in myself and I know that my life is great because I made it great. The best part is that now I am helping kids who are different or afraid or have low self-esteem. I get what they are experiencing because I have been there and I might be a dog but I’m a kid at heart.

Kids need a hero like me. I’m Rugby Jones to the rescue and I’m here for your kids and for you too! Guess what? I’m on Facebook and Twitter!

New Years: A Time To Look Up

What could be better than waking up on the first day of 2012 and going outside to see this picture? That is a sure sign that 2012 is going to be amazing.

My suggestion for you today is to find something positive about every single thing that happens today. Remember that people are as happy as they want to be. They can be as successful as they believe they will be as long as they add action to the process.

So let your goal for today to see the positive and share the positive with all you meet. It will come back a million fold. Try it. Think about it this way; If I hadn’t looked up toward the sky, I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to see this beautiful balloon.

If you practice being happy today, you’ll have a head start tomorrow!

Happy New Year!
