Disability - Starting All Over Again

Seattle (ESTRA) - So all that's left is lemons.  There's no sugar, splenda, or honey to make lemonade.  Start all over again.  Be thankful and choose to start with a clean new slate, with the exception of a disability.

Evaluate where you are in the healing process.  Continue to focus on how to get better.  Don't give up.  Don't feel beaten.  Life takes it's twists and turns, and they are not always predictable.  The only guarantee in life is change.  Change for the good.  Change for the bad.  The only thing to do is pick up the pieces, and if possible, reshape or remold them.  Otherwise, start all over again.

Try to pace yourself so you don't end back at square one.  Lick your wounds, bury them, and build new dreams for your future.  Yes, a future.  You still have one.  Just don't spend too much time in the grieving process.  It will take too much time from making a better life.  Use the lessons learned, and keep moving. 

Remember, you are the most important person in this equation.  Take your life back, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.  You can do it.  Just be patient.  One step at a time, not three.  Make your foundation strong and healthy.  In this way, the suffering endured can be acknowledged, viewed as a memory, but a life lived in the present, can build a good future. 

Thanks for visiting.
