time to be slow…

This is the time to be slow…
Try, as best you can, not to let
The wire brush of doubt
Scrape from your heart
All sense of yourself
And your hesitant light.

Time will come good;
And you will find your feet
Again on fresh pastures of promise,
Where the air will be kind
And blushed with beginning

A good deed…

by example

 

The world is changed by your example, not your opinion.

Overcoming it…

 

Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it.

 

I have always been sensitive to the way people deal with perceived suffering as inspiration. My life has been filled with challenges. Born with a disability, I have faced a life of adapting. It was my life, it is my life. With nothing in my experience to compare, I adapted. I crawled instead of walking, I sat on my dad’s shoulders to get from one place to the other until it was time for my first wheelchair at the age of four. I entered the world knowing that to get in and out of almost any place would require adapting – stretching to find ways other than ‘normal’ doorways.

There have been plenty of times when certain opportunities have been difficult to reach but I have always been encouraged to find alternatives. This may look like suffering to the outsider but I choose, each day, to seek out the next way to overcome. 

It is a way many people choose. The way of overcoming.
