365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 221

I have been having a lot of conversations lately with people about mobility. Before I continue, I must warn you this may be a controversial blog post. These are my views and my opinion, if you have a different opinion please feel free to Voice that opinion and I respectful manner and we can have a conversation about it. One thing I do not want is for people’s views to be brought down or attacked due to this post as I know we can all have varying opinions For various reasons so please keep the comments respectful thank you. As I was saying, I have been having a few conversations with people about mobility and if/when is the right time to start different treatments or in some peoples cases to stop using a certain type of mobility aid and start using a different one. The conclusion I have come to is that it really depends on the person. That said, I can see how parents of people with disabilities may feel that the person should …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 207

I’ve been noticing something lately, which may be just me finally tuning into myself, and yes you did read that right, I said tuning into myself,Or maybe a shift has taken place. But I notice over the past two days or so, I have found standing in my truth, in my authentic self to be easier and puke to me as a feeling of peace and fulfilment at the most on opportune times.I should’ve really took note of what I was doing in those moments, because that would be good to know now. I feel like a lot of the upcoming year of 2019 will be like this for me much like 2018 was the year of discovery and figuring out what living in the moment really means. As I lay around today just watching mystery shows and getting good sleep, not just medicated sleep but good sleep I resolve to make this weekend a revitalizing, rejuvenating one. When I go back in to work on Monday I want to be or feel like a …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 200

Wow 200 days! I can’t believe I have made it this far. I really didn’t think I’d make it even past week. Honestly this challenge has truly become part of my life and changed how I look at things. Years ago I was a ball of stress, never even able to take a breath when talking to someone. Now – well someone describe me as very chill. And I am. To say I don’t let the little things get to me would be a lie, because everyone has their days. I had one yesterday in fact. But often I am able to put the little things into perspective, and even the big things don’t seem life ending or life-changing, Unless of course they are. 200 days is a mile stone, but there are so many fun things to come, knowing about a few of them and not knowing about many of them I can say for certain, this is going to be a fun life changing year and continuing this journey and creating the next …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 195

So, I was able to slow things down today and in the slowing down I was able to get more done. Funny how that works. I think, and I’m just thinking out loud here, literally, voice recognition is a wonderful thing. I wonder if as a person Who is disabled I am always trying to prove myself. And, speed is often something people are looking for, so, it’s something that I have learned operate in. So much so, when I needed to slow down I have a harder time. But, I as a disabled person I am able to have, and take, the luxury of time because often speed is not a choice for me. I operate on Mindy time and sometimes that time cannot be changed. If you can’t handle that, I’m sorry, but you’re never gonna get me. what I have struggled with over the years is realizing that it is OK to take that time. It is not a weakness, in fact it is the Strank’s. I am deserving of that time, …

365 Days, Living In The Moment, Day 184

I’m a conqueror today. Not only did I get through the day, while not feeling well. I did something I know many people think I can’t, and I know I did it right. I know people will know the felling of finally figuring out how to do something yourself with no help. No matter how big or small that thing is, the feeling is the same. Indescribable to all but those who have experienced it with that I’m going to bed. Remember whatever you did today, accomplished or didn’t, you are a conqueror to.

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 153

I snuggled with my cat today. I’m sure I could’ve done more, I’m sure I could’ve done less. Recently though my tone has changed and I am dealing with -Well basically, not being able to move my legs not like it used to at least if at all. I wasn’t going to mention it, but then I thought, that wouldn’t be honest, And not every day is a happy one but we can find moments of happy in every day. Though I spent most of my day in bed, some of it even crying I did get to watch a few documentaries and snuggle /Love on my cat. He couldn’t care less if I why don’t in all honesty both of my cats like the fact that Mum he uses a chair because they figured it out and they don’t like walking anymore when they can ride. I could be thinking of everything let me change and how my life is over, if I felt that way. But instead, as much as I mourn the …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 114

So this came today and I always talk about the fact that it’s the little things that make life worth living. Today that couldn’t have been more true. I have just not had the best day, I didn’t get much sleep last night and I’m dealing with a lot of stuff but the fact that this came today and I have been wanting to get it for a few months now really did turn my day around. Even better, it works. And I mean I could see how people would say of course it works Mindy, it’s a mug. But I mean like actually keeps your coffee hot for a decent amount of time like you don’t have to go but down which I really appreciate. I also got a new kettle today because I needed one and that makes me smile too because it’s red and it’s old-fashioned looking. And at this point anything that will keep me going until the end of Saturday night is a plus. This week is just busy and …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 72

I felt like a normal 20 something today. I was asked to go to In after work get together late last week and I actually didn’t think I was going to go but I decided on Monday that I was gonna do something different that on the road to change there was going to be scary things and that hey maybe I would have fun. Guess what, I actually did and I say that in a way surprised and Innoway not because I know all of these people are great people inclusive fun and just great people to be around so why I wouldn’t go out for drinks with them I don’t know. Facing your fear can be so worth it and you can realize that maybe there is more support and more love around you than you ever thought possible you just for whatever reason couldn’t see it, that’s not a bad thing sometimes it just takes a catalyst whether it be a person, a saying, or a thought. It to get us to …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 60

There are some days where everything seems to pile up on you and there are some days where when everything comes at you at once you don’t know how to feel and then there are days like the one I had today in which because everything is happening at once and some is good and Sam is not as good you get home and you think wow I’m glad that’s over. Good bad or ugly day has it all and I could choose to stick with one of those emotions and carry that through my entire day. Or I can take the emotions as they come, feel what they bring up for me and do you with the aftermath as needed. So what is my moment for today it’s an interesting one today it rained and it rained hard and I love the rain and instead of looking at it as a downpour in which I needed to go out and was going to get soaking wet and was wearing white I was able to …
