“Ask for what you want and be prepared to get it!” – Maya Angelou. Have you ever gotten something that you wanted only to discover that it wasn’t wanted you after all? 🙂
It’s 5: 49 PM on day 52 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself All-Bran Flakes for breakfast, learn Analytical Geometry – I know what secants, chords and tangents are – feed myself rice and curry for lunch, wheel myself from one end of the sitting room to the other – as I was doing it I suddenly had an epiphany I realized that nobody can cheer for me as loud as I can cheer for myself – and practised turning myself from one side to another on the bed – I know that I have a GREAT life and believe me when I say that I am SO very grateful but there are days when I wish I didn’t have to try so hard to do EVERY little thing.
You remember the party I wrote about on Sunday – the one I wasn’t sure my parents would take me to – well I did end up going and when I got there I finally understood why my father didn’t want me to go – there were close to a 100 people there and most of them just walked passed me not even bothering to look me in the eye – I had NEVER in my life felt more invisible 😦
