Day 1103: Looking at the intention behind words and actions

See the intention behind the words and actions of others – that’s what I keep learning.

 

It’s 1  : 29  PM on day 1103 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to  brush my teeth, feed myself  All Bran Flakes  for breakfast,   pray, read 2 Samuel 6, publish my Disability of the Day feature, tweet  about my campaign – I am not able anything to do much of anything today I feel awful it’s so unfair I eat right, I exercise and I’m still left feeling sluggish meanwhile others eat all sorts of junk and they  are still fine the next day – and go pick up my new wheelchair – it’s like my old one except this one’s  lighter.

 

Two days ago something happened which made me realize I should take the words and actions of others as they were intended when people say stuff like you are in my prayers my first thought is something along the lines of just because I’m in a wheelchair doesn’t mean I need extra prayers meanwhile I’m sure they were just trying to be nice I hate the fact that I tend to add layers to the words and actions of others hopefully I’ll grow out of it someday. Do you try to see the intention behind the words and actions of others or do you always take things the wrong way?
