Sometimes when a door is slammed shut, Yvonne, the very best thing you can do is to knock on it again, and again, and again.
But I’d recommend you try all the other doors, too.
I receive notes from the universe just about daily and thought I would share this one with you. I think it is a good lesson for not only able bodied people, but people with disabilities.
“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”
“It is fun to have fun but you have to know how.”
Let’s see what we can learn from Dr. Seuss. His quotes can be a little silly, but if you think about them there is a lesson to be had.
