“No tree, it is said, can grow to heaven unless its roots reach down to hell.”
“The happy place is realizing you’re everything you know and that there’s no real you involved in the first place” – Jim Carrey
Short story about how saying “yes” will open new doors.
After a biking accident, Finnish free diver Johanna Nordblad nearly lost her leg to necrosis. As part of her treatment, she began free diving under the freezing Arctic ice. The pain was agony when she first started; now she holds a world record for the sport she grew to love. British director Ian Derry joined her on a dive in this short documentary for an experience he describes as “literally breathtaking.”
With one breath, I am part of it – Johanna Nordblad
“It was a long hard road and definitely did not happen overnight. In addition to losing my leg I broke my pelvis, my back, tore internal organs, endured massive trauma to my body and a pretty bad concussion. Basically my family and friends made my recovery possible. I would have taken my life if they weren’t there for me. I’m weak and they made me strong.” – Kurt Yaeger
