    Denis Ten tweeted yesterday: "Officially turned [Denis] Twenty today. Thanks for all of the messages and wishes. Let them all come true! ;-)"

    He also shared this photo of his 20th birthday dinner in Canada, along with a message of gratitude in Russian and English: http://instagram.com/p/ah3a1NO4wx/

    I like the new D20 moniker
    Q: Why can't I read the competition threads?

    In your gratitude, Denis, you are blessed --

    Because as Eckhart Tolle has said: “Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.”


    In his book, Peace Is Every Step: The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Life, Thich Nhat Hanh advises: “Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.”


    I believe you skate, Denis, as if you are kissing the ice with your heart!!!

    Happy 20th birthday, Denis! Enjoy the summer and best wishes for the coming season!
