Several days ago I began this series as an addendum or in follow up to an article that I wrote, Living with a Disability — Go and Make it a Good Day. I began this series because in my experience I found that I could not begin to Go and Make it a Good Day until I addressed what kept me from being able to Go and Make it a Good Day. Per your information, each part of the series builds upon the previous parts of the series and each part of the series is connected to the series as a whole.
That is why I suggest that each of the previous parts be read for context.
I hope you are benefiting from my experience, strength and hope. Please let me know if the content of the series is helping you. Thank you.
And now for Part 2.
Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. I want to thank you for deciding to stop by to visit with me. Yesterday I wrote an article,
Living with a Disability — Go and Make it a Good Day. Today, I have been thinking about that article in lieu of an email and a comment that I received today. The email reminded me of the struggle that I face living with a disability and the comment motivated me to write this article.
In today’s article I want to share something that has empowered me to go and make it a good day. I am not suggesting that I make it a good day every day, but what I have learned through my process has empowered me to realize that I can choose to go and make it a good day.
Living with a disability, or in my case with an invisible disability can be very challenging.– at times. If you are living with an disability or an invisible disability yourself, I am sure you can identify with me. Through my process of living with an invisible disability for the past 42 years, I have discovered several essential ingredients to being able to make it a good day — one day at a time. Over the next several days, I will share what has empowered me to be able to choose to go and make it a good day.
In essence I have come to realize that I first need to have Awareness, before I can have Acceptance, before I can take the necessary Action to make it a good day.
One thing I will share at this point — the journey is worth much more than arriving at the destination. Enjoy the process.
Please read Part 2. Thank you.
