There’s a lesson in everything and a teacher in everyone– that’s what I keep learning
It’s 3: 29 PM on day 589 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself Oats for breakfast, drink tea by myself, publish my Disability of the Day feature, exercise my right hand – I can now pick up a coffee mug with my right hand (yay!) I need more practice putting it down though … some progress is better than no progress – and feed myself yogurt for lunch.
Today while exercising my right hand I was listening to Stronger – Kelly Clarkson’s latest album – and when I heard ‘You Can’t Win’ – track 12 on the album (click ‘Play’ below to listen to the song) – again I realized that no matter who you are you can’t please everybody people have said I spend too much time on the internet and when I go out people act like I’m not even there I’m done trying to please people I’m going to please me from today onwards – I will go to community events to educate people about people with disabilities (thank you Kelly for teaching me that I should dance to the beat of my own drum). Do you see the lesson in everything and a teacher in everyone?
