Are you a person or a disability ?
From many posts on here, and other forums, it seems that posters try to define themselves as a condition, illness or disability rather than as a person.
It is to easy to get caught up in the benefits system and to only see yourself as being sick or disabled, where, in fact, you are much more than than that and have a lot to contribute to society.
As we are approaching the start of another new year, which often gives us reason to reflect on our lives, there is no reason why you should not look at the positive things that we can do. For sure, our difficulties will not go away but if you look for and embrace even the smallest positives, life will become a little easier. There are few miracles in this world but one way to improve your life is to cultivate a positive mental attitude, It is not an easy thing to do when you are in pain but try to smile, even when you are alone, at least once a day, and soon it will become a habit. The smallest of action can bring a huge change, it has been said that if a butterfly flaps its wings than a storm can be created on the other side of the world.
Be all you can be, make every day count. Namaste
