Many of us complain when we are injured or hurt and cannot get on a board, myself included. Personally this year was a notably bad year for injuries. As of late I have been complaining about the fact of not being able to get on a board between the months of October and April. Unfortunately I have the type of personality that gets really frustrated and upset when I cannot ride (or "vent through physical activity").
Then I came across this website: http://www.shredformikey.com/
Reading through the site it really put things in perspective and allowed me to see "how bad things could be".
To those who are currently injured, lets take a moment out and reflect on how much worse things could have been, and how fortunate we are to do what we do.
Sorry if this link has been used in the past, I just came across it.
