Disability and Daily Metrics of Success

Success on any given day…

is waking  up turning off and untangling mechanical vent lines and making it to the bathroom before a bowel movement surges forward in time

slow walker with sometimey stiff joints slamming doors open at the starting point

entering and exiting shower sans slipping suppressing urge to stay indoors and check out what I might be missing

getting dressed standing after pushing off side of bed applying just enough energy and force so I don’t fall and hit my head

brushing my teeth and doing hair by propping my arms up to make a neat ponytail

tomorrow feels like a cavalcade of days marching through my mind when frustration holds dominion and a smile seems hard to find

I remind myself that today is temporary and feelings are fleeting and thank gawd for technology making it possible to attend virtual meetings

success is sustained energy and ease of mobility allowing me to gracefully flow through the day with little to no rigidity

  1. Funny how “success” can vary from day to day depending on our fluctuating abilities, isn’t it? Today success means I got up and out of bed on time because my Personal Assistant showed up on time, and I’m dressed and at my computer by 9 AM.

  2. I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your website.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much
    more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to
    create your theme? Excellent work!

    • Thank you so much for your kind words, glad you enjoyed the layout. I really like the simplicity of the layout and found it visually-appealing as well. Very grateful that WordPress offered this theme so I didn’t have to look too far..thanks again! 🙂
