Day 965: Turning pain into purpose

When you use your struggles to help others pain turns into purpose  – that’s what I keep learning 🙂

It’s  3  : 24 PM on day 965 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself sweet potatoes with yogurt for breakfast,  publish my Disability of the Day feature, publish my  Kid of the Week feature,   pray, read Numbers 18, practice typing with both hands and  practice sitting up straight to strengthen my core muscles.

Today I woke up to read this question from Anchel Krishna who blogs at Today’s Parent What does it feel like? Specifically I am wondering does it ever feel frustrating because your mind is telling your body or body part to take a specific action but your body just won’t cooperate? Or does it feel differently than that? to which I replied in part yes it’s hugely frustrating you move to do something but somewhere along the line it’s like your brain misinterprets your message. it’s great that I can speak for kids who are in the same position I was in growing up it makes me feel like there’s a purpose for me having Cerebral Palsy. Have you turned your pain into purpose?
