If you want lasting change think of it as a lifestyle– that’s what I learned today 🙂
It’s 7: 23 PM on day 395 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, publish my Disability of the Day feature–I prepared it yesterday night – read Love That Sabrina: Not Very Wordless Wednesday on Love That Max, To The Author of The Anonymous Note Left On My Car Window on Special Needs Mom, Wordless Wednesday: Spotlight on Jaden on Outrageous Fortune and Wordless Wednesday: Swinging and The Power of Language on Bringing the Sunshine – they were all very good but I especially LOVED To The Author of The Anonymous Note Left On My Car Window on Special Needs Mom because it was about compassion and non-judgment not to mention it was VERY well-written 🙂 – feed myself pasta bolognaise for brunch – I used a fork and I only spilled a little I am SO happy 🙂 – listen to music, Facebook about my Clean Water For All Campaign – no luck today but Tony Hastings (@thetop10blog) made a donation yesterday– thanks again Tony I REALLY REALLY appreciate it :)– watch TV, feed myself an avocado sandwich, grilled chicken and yoghurt for dinner and brush my teeth once more.
Today I was doing something and it occurred to me that I was doing things all wrong when it came to learning how to be independent I would carve out an hour to practice typing with both hands when I should’ve been typing with both hands throughout the day –it’s kinda like when people go on a diet they eat well and exercise for the duration of the diet after which they fall back into their old bad habits – so I’ve decided to incorporate all the things I need to learn to become more independent into my life I.e. I’m no longer going to create situations to practice doing things I will practice doing them when the situations actually arise like right now for instance I am using both my hands to type. Do you want lasting change?
