Teach

 It has been a grueling day.  Sometimes you have to learn and sometimes teach.  While i don't want to have to explain my disability, sometimes I must be uncomfortable so others can learn.  If they don't know, it doesn't serve me.

Time flies

Almost July?  Wow!  It just reminds me how fast time goes, and to just enjoy it.  Every day is a gift.  I have to remind myself.  I tend to forget easily or take it for granted.  Coming into July, I just want to be more present.  I tend to be a projector and a have a negative attitude toward self.  This is what I'd like to work on.
What would you like to work on?

The mystery

This week is coming to a close, but I'm proud of myself.
What I've learned this week:
It's okay to shed tears.
Not everyone will give you praise.
Not everyone will care.
The ones that do will give you love.
He came down to save us All.

Life is a mystery, I am experiencing for the first time, eyes open.  When your eyes are open, so too is your heart.  For an idealist, with the world, and a realist with self, I can't treat the world better than I do myself.  Thank you to a reader who pointed that out to me.  I still hope for the good.

Have a blessed day filled with love and joy.

South Carolina>Texas in heat.  Don't think I was ready
Dreaming of a pool and a cold beverage

the truth

I usually don't address this, but I will.  Disability.  That darn D word.

What has it cost me?
Independence-  Asking to be driven everywhere.  To the doctor, to the bank, etc.  I just can't decide, oh i'd like to get an ice cream today.

Privacy-  I need help with ordinary tasks like cutting my toenails, doing my hair or flossing my teeth.

My pride-It is extremely embarrassing to ask for help for some of the things I need help with sometimes.

Folks, on the outside, I look fine, and maybe I've helped emphasize this fact so fellow humans couldn't see reality.  For that, I'm sorry.

What I've gained

Christ-  I don't know if I weren't disabled, if I could embrace Christ and accept his gift of salvation.

Perception is not reality, it's all in perspective.
I'm doing now what I swore I'd never do.
A small glimpse into my life as a disabled individual.
