The Strength In Vulnerability

What's Your WheelchairIt is hard to show our vulnerability at times.  In general, society has defined expressing our vulnerabilities as being weak. But that is not true.  Our greatest strengths lay in our vulnerabilities, and the courage to express them.

Over the last month or so, I have been very, very sad. February 7, 2015, was my twenty-first anniversary of being injured.  I had now been injured half my life. This was always a weird time of year for me, but this year was different.

I was beside myself with a sadness that smothered me.  I had no fight to overcome it whatsoever. This worried my husband, as it was so unlike my character.  In my heart of hearts, I knew this grief was not about my injury. Not understanding why I felt the way I did was the worst part.

And so I took some of my own advice I have shared with you so many times;  I reached out. And in doing so, I not only felt better, I discovered my answer.

    Can truly understand, I missed you always love ready your articles.

    • I was sharing with Mike the other day how you would buy Wendy and I little matching shirts to waitress in together. He forgot how long you and I have known each other. Thank you for all of your support and encouragement when I needed it all those years ago, and thank you for it now. It has the same effect on me, regardless of my age. Each comment you make motivate, inspire and reassure me I’m on the right path, and with hard work and confidence, I can achieve anything. Thank you then, and thank you now. You have a very lucky family:) XOXO
