That which we think will usually come to fruition. NOT riches or lottery or physical perfection or external pleasures, but that which lies within. I do not view myself as handicapped; I am a woman who happens to have a physical disability. I am handiCAPABLE . Nor am I defined by my bipolar disorder; I am a person first and simply have an illness. Neither am I any former or current illness I have. I am not unique or alone; millions of people throughout the world face the exact same challenges I have in my life today.
And I would encourage everyone to speak their truth; to be frank, bold, and brave (without being abrasive). Ask for help when you need it; even I need help sometimes. Seek not perfection and above all, accept yourself as you are. If you feel you need to improve, do it. Usually, we are the only thing standing in the way.
