Talk about Tuesday

This is my first attempt at Talk about Tuesday. I thought I'd talk a little bit about where I am emotionally in my life right now and where I see myself heading. I hope that it might help new readers get to know me and let people who have read my blog before a little better.

First off, I believe that I have finally got to a point in my life where I accept that I am always going to have Cerebral Palsy and need to use a wheelchair and to a certain extent be reliant on others in order to be able to live a full life. As a result of this realization I have stopped trying to fight the fact that I have carers come into my home to work with me and hopefully I am easier to work with now.

I am also beginning to understand that it is okay to ask for help and admit that I cannot do everything alone or in the way that everybody else does. To that end I think I am getting better at saying no and asking people to help me when I need it. I'm probably not doing it to the degree that I should but I guess I'll get there eventually.

I think these things are a work in progress and I'll let you all know how I go.

It sounds like you have much more peace now and that is certainly essential to living a full life too. I'm sure it was hard work to progress to where you are emotionally now, so good job and keep it up!

Karen,

I am applauding you! We all are a work in progress. All of us ... and we're all the same, whether we walk with wheels or legs, we're all the same.

We all just take one day at a time. It souns like you're seeing the glass half full instead of half empty!
