Yet another brilliant example of All Things Possible!

I only recently discovered Ben Underwood and his amazing All Things Possible approach to life and his perceived limitations. I learned this morning that Ben passed away at the beginning of this year but his life and example live on as an inspiration to all of us.

    I don't know what to say other than.....Wow!

    Me too...Wow! What a message he left for us all...reminders of ATP for sure. None of us has any excuses for not getting the most out of life as possible. Thanks, Chris. I'll pass it along. Tim, good to hear your voice again! Sue

    WOW indeed! That goes to show how much a we are able to do and how little of our abilities we use.
    Thanks, Chris, for sharing this with us.
    Hope all the Forum Family is well. We finally put our general election behind us yesterday and I am pleased Angela Merkel gets another go. I think she's doing a great job. Also, the renovation of my living room started today. I seemed to have had Mary Poppins furniture with all the stuff that managed to accumulate in there. The room is cleared out completely now - took me four weeks! - and the painter started work today. If all goes according to plan I will be able to put together the new furniture on the weekend, yeah! Can't wait!
    Big hugs to you all & Stay Positive!

    Hi everyone...yes, it's good to be reminded of how much power we have that we don't use. Especially when we feel overwhelmed by life's challenges or what we consider an overload of responsibilities and projects to complete. Just to be reminded of that ATP power in one personal story such as this, melts away all those "I can't do it" thoughts. As my friend Clayton Klein, the Walking Man likes to tell me (knowing of Chris' ATP): "With God all good things are possible." I'm glad we have the forum to nudge us along.

    Ute, I love the Mary Poppins image. A favorite story of mine, besides Dorothy in Oz:) It'll be exciting for you to see the new look. And thanks for the Stay Positive! Sending back and all around to everyone more hugs and ATB! Sue

    Thank you for helping us put things into perspective. Even though Cancer took Ben in the end, what an inspiration of what we are capable of. I know that all our prayers are with the ones he touched and left behind.

    Very cool - using his own voice as sonar. I see that there are now devices, developed at Central Michigan University, that operate on the same principle.

    Still pretty quiet around here:)
    Dave and Tanya, good to see your posts. Dave, was that you saying I'm a trend setter on FB? Thanks, but we'll see. Yes launched yesterday. Celebration at Cleary's Pub in Howell...with the vision set to be back there in five years for anniversary dinner.

    Yes, you can go see it now. And it should be fun, even if you're not from the area, because it will have lots of entertainment, theatre, movie news because of the interests of those who started it up. Right now, there are articles and blogs about the movie stuff going on here, which you'd enjoy.

    But, don't look for me quite yet! Unless you happen to see something about farmer's markets and fall festivities:) You know how you hesitate to say you are a part of something until you see it for real?

    Always glad to be part of this place, though. And thought of Chris tonight because on my FB page, Jack Canfield says:
    "Remember, all things are possible." And you know what? A couple of people commented...thanks for reminding them. They needed to hear that. I know I need to hear it every day.

    So, aren't we lucky to have this space? With an ATB host who said ATP before it was cool? How many people have probably been reminded of that, simply because of you know who?:)

    Glad to be a part of the's really ATB! Sue

    ATB/P! There I am with my fall events...just saw it up now. And the movie articles are really interesting, since so many are having scenes shot here now...go to and also there's a FB page. They're calling this back to the future in journalism. Keep your fingers crossed for me! Happy weekend all...Sue

    Hi dear Forum Family! Hope you are having a wonderful autumnish weekend. Over here the swirly-woosh-woosh winds set in and my heater refuses to come out of it's summer nap. Luckily temperatures are not that bad yet..
    Good to see you are busy with journalism big time again Sue- I catch a bit of it every now and then on Facebook, as I did with the Clayton Klein event. Keeps you busy. I came to snatch some ATP vibes out here as I set of to do some job hunting..Let's all cross fingers for eachother! Fairy Fall wishes, Be Inspired!

    Hi everyone!

    Thanks Chris for letting us know about Ben and his touching story. I'm sorry he passed away; my thoughts go to his family and friends. He was really an amazing example of the All Things Possible way to live and an inspiration to all of us.
