It so happens that while many are looking forward to the Christmas and New Year season, there are others who struggle so much with one thing or another that they find it tough to meet this time.

In Christmas Joy of Life – find inspiration in reading about now 18-year-old Arnt Vier Winsnes Kalvik, he who in an accident in the summer of 2015 lost his left arm and both legs, he who now says that he by and large «lives a very normal youth life. »

During the Momentum weekend in Fevik in the early summer of last year, when he had not fully recovered from the prostheses, Arnt drew inspiration from others:

 

“I saw the others and thought that I should pinadø do what I do too. Being upright was very important to me. “

During a new Momentum weekend, the one in Haugesund a couple of months ago, Arnt proved to be very up-and-coming – as an inspiration speaker.

Among the others mentioned in the Christmas issue are ex-locomotive driver Olaf B. Hansen, who after an accident in 1977 lacks his left forearm and right leg, and his Anne Guri – the two who for many years have been frequent participants in Momentum gatherings , the two who bring with them a lot of cheerfulness and coziness and thus support under what is for a mainstay in Momentum to count, this that the joy of life should be cultivated.

Feel free to get inspiration also by reading about Håkon Thue, who in good adulthood has tackled a number of challenges – including those who were to be amputated on the right side, below the knee, in the spring of 2015 and a year and a half later similarly amputated on the left side.

Håkon’s advice to new amputees:

“Stubbornness and will and courage are important do not necessarily have to be in contact with other amputees, it is important to find their own way to do it.”
