It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change. – Charles Darwin
It’s 7: 55 PM on day 309 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself a polony sandwich for breakfast, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign – no luck – chat with my Twitter friend @pfellas via Skype –it was actually fantastic I got to see some London sunshine sitting in my own dining room 🙂 – watch TV, feed myself rice and curry for lunch, go and say goodbye to my uncle and aunty who are leaving for Canada tomorrow, feed myself a McValue Meal for dinner and brush my teeth once more.
Yesterday my mother told me that our housekeeper would be replaced by the temp if she didn’t show up before August 5th – we need a housekeeper every day because someone has to help me while my parents are at work (oh the joys of having Cerebral Palsy never alone but always just a teensy bit lonely) – and although I had no problem with the temp my first thought was who’s going to deliver the sandwiches to our current housekeeper’s neighborhood every week(if you have no idea what I’m talking about refer to Virginia’s Sandwich Run) then it hit me that I could just as easily have our temp deliver the sandwiches since both her and our current housekeeper live in the same neighborhood my point is sometimes things happen that you don’t expect but that doesn’t mean you have to quit because I truly believe that there is no problem without a solution and no question without an answer. In a world where change is the only constant do you choose to adapt or die?
