As a person who is different I have always found I have faced more and or different barriers than others. I have compensated doing what I can do very well. I have always felt the need to go above and beyond to prove myself and to break down barriers in stigmas. I still feel this way but I now realize making life harder on myself For another person’s benefit is not something I necessarily have to do. I put that pressure on myself. And the people who want to be around me and like me for me shouldn’t be putting that pressure on me. Just seems like common sense now that I understand it but it took me forever to wrap my head around and now I have I feel as if life is going to be much different but different for the better. I’ll be living life for me…

Amen. Don’t settle just for in existence. Live. Really Live.

I saw this on Instagram a few days ago and I instantly connected with it. Especially on days like today that were really nothing special. Until I realized the special moment happened when I got home and was able to work on my site re-doing it to better represent me. I have been having some technical difficulties lately but hopefully I am back up and running as of now, don’t ask me what happened I am not sure. But I did not miss a day of posting and I realize now that even in the mist of days that are kind of blah do you can keep focussed on creating the life you want.

this totally describes my day today. But I know I will make it, to the next day, and the one after that, and the one after that. And in case you’re wondering – you will too.

When you find people who I like you. Who get you for who you are. Who you don’t have to explain anything to. Who are just excepting of you as you are. Who truly love being around you are a person, with no filter, no expectations, or preconceived notion’s. You have found your people stick with them. Love them. let them know you appreciate them. Those people are your people.

A day doesn’t have to be full of memorable experience it to be memorable. For the same reason some of the littlest things that happen to of us become the things that we remember. It has been freakishly hot today so much so that nobody wants to do anything say anything or be anywhere other than inside in the air conditioning. Today is also the last day I have with my youngest cat Persia. She is going to be pleased with a new family tomorrow and of the way I know it is the right thing to do it still breaks my heart. That said, I am really hoping I get to witness a moment of connection between a cat and its owner, I really believe that animals are meant to be with certain people, and when they find that person or that person finds them the connection is palpable.…

Sometimes all you need is an impromptu evening out with your mum to gain all the perspective you ever need. Even on the longest day of life.

I’m sorry for the break between videos. I needed to figure out a few things before I could continue with YouTube. Watch my next vlog to get caught up with all that. It actually someone ties into today’s post.Being able to independently get around is a huge part of my life. It enables me to do many things that I couldn’t do it otherwise. Obviously. Some take this for granted, I know I used to when I was solely ambulatory, now getting around can be harder sometimes it is definitely something I have to take into consideration.

Choosing seating is a very personal and customizable choice and will be different for every user depending on how much you use your chair and what you use your chair for. That said, seating is one of the most important parts of a chair as improper seating can cause pain, pressure sores and muscle tightening and other issues. Seating is expensive and I’m not going to beat around the bush about that, but I feel like some as important as your body and positioning at stake, it is worth the investment, at least for me. I went over a few different options for seating in this video, however, there are many others that I did not mention. Wheelchair seating is such a broad topic, I can’t pretend to know it all, even if I wanted to. So please, please, please, ask your doctor or OT as I am not a…

In this blizzard conditions, I could just stay at home and wait for it to pass. But, if I did that, I would be waiting for six or more months. And, I would never get anything done. So, I choose to go out. That said, I choose my days and times wisely, and the activities around those days and times are chosen strategically as well. For instance, The only thing I did that day other than Christmas shopping was work. Which is something I can do from my home and I spend basically, all day behind a computer. So, I am not exerting as much physical energy during the day. So that I can do more at night. This is also why I choose to use my wheelchair at work. So that I have energy and mobility to live my life. Blizzards Don’t Put A Freeze On Life: Extreme Weather…
