Never waste a good crisis – Rahm Emanuel.
It’s 7: 47 PM on day 61 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself a banana for breakfast – it took me 15 minutes to pry it open with my fingernails and when I finally did it I couldn’t help thinking it must be abnormal to get this excited over being able to open a banana – went to the Hemingways Mall with my family – the whole time I was there I couldn’t help thinking that this trip to the mall was consolation for my parents refusing to take me to India and that really bothered me 😦 – feed myself rice and curry for lunch, drink water from a glass – I usually drank stuff out of a coffee mug because it was much easier for me to hold a coffee mug than it was to hold glass – transferred myself from the wheelchair to the bed – I had to hold onto my sister’s hand and I nearly fall on my backside but in the end I did it and for that reason I will ALWAYS be proud if me 🙂 and feed myself pasta covered in cheese sauce for dinner.
Mistakes are a natural part of life but today when my brother accidently closed the blog post I was working on without saving it first I realized that there is a lesson to be learned from every mistake – in my case it was ALWAYS save your work. What are some of the greatest lessons that you’ve learned from your mistakes? 🙂
