Continuing with our series with what Fresh Outlook stands for we are up to “E”. Many times when a person becomes disabled they may want to give up on their dreams, but at least in my opinion, you should expect more from yourself and not less. Just because you may not be able to do things the way you may have done them in the past does not mean you cannot still do them. Many times you will have a period of trial and error to figure out ways to get things done. When you tap into your imagination the sky can be the limit! Take some time to think about all the ways that one task can be accomplished, frankly it can be surprising.
As we continue with our series on what Fresh Outlook stands for we are at R and like I did for the F I’m going to look at two different points of view. We are going to start with resentment since it is only natural that when you become disabled you experience some resentment. I know when I started to lose my sight I was sick and I kept asking why me. I heard of other people with the same condition that I have that went back to work and had no lasting effects. With my condition pseudo tumor cebris only 6% of people lose their sight permantly. Six percent really? Talk about resentment, I had an over abundance of it!
In my last article I wrote about how F stands for fear and how it is natural to have fear after becoming disabled. But after talking with a friend of mine who happens to be totally blind why have the negative word? So how about we take a look at the word Freedom.
Exciting news! I have been busy lately and just wanted to share what I’ve been up to. Today I am just going to share the main link and over the next couple of days I will share more about each book. Last fall I started a series of inspirational journals. Since I need help with them and my sister was my help my plans of doing a journal monthly were dashed when she had an accident. About 2 months ago I needed a little distraction so I both some software to make puzzle books, with the assurance I would be able to use it with my limited vision. Well..let’s just say kind of.
