How you define what you want can change your whole life– that’s what I learned today
It’s 6: 05 PM on day 488 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself an egg sandwich for breakfast, prepare and publish my Disability of the Day feature, listen to music, sign the petition Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia: Allow the kidney transplant Amelia needs to survive – the hospital refuses to perform a kidney transplant on two-year-old Amelia because she’s ‘mentally retarded’ CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT! I urge you to sign the petition (100 000 signatures is the goal so far we’ve got 4 095) (Note: This petition was started by Sunday of Extreme Parenthood who has two kids with autism –) thank you for caring Sunday – listen to some more music, watch TV and continue to listen to music.
As you all know I have accepted the fact that I Cerebral Palsy and moved on with my life although I have felt in the past that my life lacked adventure because of my physical limitations but now that I think about it I realize that all the things I would have done had I been able to walk – bungee-jumping, sky-diving – wouldn’t have given me as much joy as the things I’m doing now do I mean so what I can’t jump off a bridge or a plane I raised enough money – with the help of my friends around the world (thanks guys) – to build a well for a community somewhere in the world that lacks clean water and because of me there are twenty kids who have sandwiches to eat almost every weekend is there a greater adventure than knowing you’ve made a difference in the lives of others. Have you changed your whole life by changing the definition of the things that you want?
