Do the one thing you think you cannot do. Fail at it. Try again. Do better the second time. The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire. This is your moment. Own it. – Oprah Winfrey
It’s 7: 08 PM on day 253 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, practice wheeling myself around – it was a disaster and a half I wasn’t sitting straight in the chair, the skin on my fingers was coming off hopefully it won’t be like this tomorrow – exercise for two hours, feed myself chicken hotdogs for breakfast, watch TV, feed myself rice and curry for lunch, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign –no luck – feed myself Chapati for dinner and brush my teeth once more.
Today as I sat two steps away from the kitchen – exactly where I ended up yesterday – trying desperately to wheel myself even an inch further just to know that I had made the tiniest bit of progress I realized that if I didn’t make it to the kitchen today there was always tomorrow and that I suppose is my message to all of you if you don’t succeed today get up and try again until you do because I believe with all my heart that those who persevere will get all their heart’s desires. Do you give up on all your dreams after the first attempt?

Stan’s very sweet for saying so, but feel free to write what reflects you best.
Thanks to all my friends out there who are helping me make my dream come true: to make a better world for all of us!
