holiday recipes for change: doing what is right for me not what I expected from myself or is expected of me

Recently, I had a moment of clarity; we were at an annual celebration, an event my family and I have attended for as long as I can remember. I realized I shouldn’t feel honoured to be simply added to the guest list, rather I should do what makes me feel happiest.

I have decided that I need to realize if events are worth it to attend; sometimes they just zap my energy which can and does impact me for the next few days; this can be annoying. Sore muscles because I emotionally (and sometimes physically) outdo myself.

I’m starting to learn to evaluate my own needs with regards to this. I shouldn’t be overly enthusiastic simply to be invited and I should do what I would enjoy now: not the things I have placed on myself because of tradition.

I know this is a short post but consider it an update for now. I have started a full time job on Tuesday; I am so exhausted that I come home, read emails, kick back and call it a day- I just wanted you to know I am still here!

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.
