Yes, once you determine the Y (Why?)You'll find many of the Obstacles listed above apply to U (You). Now finding how to get over, around, etc. is also left up to U (You). Until we do, we keep getting the same Results or Failures. Its an ongoing day in day out process that comes harder for those Challenged with Disabilities, whether they be Physical, Emotional, or Mentally. We each progress according to our on inherent abilities to over-come or give in. What will YOU chose?

    Oh teacher, I feel like you've given me an assignment and I've got some homework to do! A terrific reflective blog and you've given me food (ooh-a poor choice of words) for thought. Now to come up with some answers. Shellpro, thanks for throwing this one out there!

    I choose to do the best that I can and push myself a little more than I want to. I also choose to do only what works for me - not anyone else. This time it is my journey.

    I chose to stop pouting over my own circumstances, drop the personal pity party, and get back up again. Thanks for being an inspiration!

    For me to be successful, I'm more inclined to view "challenges" as opportunities to learn and grow from the experience as opposed to viewing "obstacles". Consquently, I don't have failures, only results.

Thank you Shellpro for reminding me how strong my values are instilled in me because of how my parents raised me. Thank you Mom and Dad.
