Day 15


Everyday I wake up and put a smile on my face sometimes because I’m happy and other times simply because I’m alive and know that the world is watching waiting for me to lead the way – which can be a lot of pressure at times but it doesn’t really bother me anymore because I know that I do my best to change the world everyday and at the end of the day that’s all God expects from every human being.

It’s 3: 42 PM on day 15 of my journey towards independence and so far I’ve managed to feed myself breakfast and lunch and practiced wheeling myself around the house which proved to be difficult today because the fingers of my right-hand just refused to bend around the metal part of the wheel  – I’ve never been so frustrated in my entire life I hope all of you don’t take the use of both your arms for granted because it is true what they say you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone.

When people come visiting to our house they would automatically skip me and ask my brother and sister what they wanted to be when they grew-up and until last year I used people’s lack of expectation of me as an excuse to be a waste of space but then one day I woke and realized that when the world doesn’t expect much from you you’ve got to expect the world from yourself and so in that spirit I’m going to ask you what I wish somebody had asked me  what do you want to be when you grow-up 🙂
