Best Life Possible

I was fortunate today to learn the story of the man who sponsored me into NPN, and he said something about how he made a choice to have a better life because he couldn’t stand the thought of dying broke, angry, resentful and with regrets.

This brought back the memory of when I was 16. Yes, just a teenager. My Mom wanted to do a self-help seminar. It was two weekends and one day during the week in between the two weekends. My parents went through it before me. On the second morning, I woke up and told my mom I was hurting too bad to go. She tried to get me to go, but I started crying and she finally gave in. When my ride came to pick me up, my mom let her know I was in too much pain to go. About 30-45 minutes later the trainer called. I didn’t want to talk to him, but my mom handed me the phone. He told me to get dressed and get down there. I was crying telling him he doesn’t understand the pain I’m in. On the phone he asked me if I was going to be a baby my whole life and hide behind my disability or if I was going to take control of my life. Pretty harsh words for a 16 year old. But I wasn’t about to let him call me a baby. I was still crying, and I was angry at him, but I let him send the woman back who was giving me a ride so she could pick me up. At the end of that day, at 10:00 pm, we were all asked if we got it. I realized then that I got it. I got that my disability didn’t have to control me. I had the power to control the disability. That doesn’t mean I never have bad days. I do, but not much gets to me anymore. And I never use my disability as an excuse.

Stop using whatever it is that you use to not be all you can be in life! That doesn’t mean you’ll never have a bad day, but recognize it and move beyond it. Stop wallowing in the “poor me” syndrome!
