    >“Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I’ll try again tomorrow.”-Mary Anne Radmacher“It is only possible to live happily-ever-after on a day-to-day basis.”-Margaret Bonnano “The healthy and strong individual is the one who asks for help when he needs it. Whether he’s got an abscess on his knee or in his soul.”-Rona Barrett Apt quotes for today, all of them. I’ve been struggling with my care this week to such an extent that I’d had enough of it earlier today. But I’ll try again tomorrow – and in doing that I’ll be courageous. I’ll accept that I can still…

    >101 in 1001

    > I’ve decided to do the 101 in 1001 challenge. If you look on my sidebar there is a permanent link to a page I set up explaining the challenge and listing my 101 things I am going to accomplish in those 1001 days. Some are habit forming (or breaking) some are fun, some are scary and some are life changing, some are off the wall and some are shamelessly stolen from other people’s lists.It’s taken me a good few hours to come up with the list but it’s been fun to do. And hopefully they will be fun to carry out too. I feel like today was a productive…

    >”I don’t need no good advice, no well intentioned sacrifice”

    >It’s been a lazy, lazy day today… it’s been nice. Gave me a chance to recharge my batteries and also to think somethings over and get them sorted out in my head. And my lovely friend Ted who is one of my swimming volunteers and also treasurer for the access group came round and adjusted my brakes for me so they actually work now. He really is a lovely man and I am grateful to have such a caring and helpful person in my life.It’s bitterly cold but dry out and so I took the chance to get outside and get some fresh air – I took my manual chair…

    >St Patricks Day!

    >Here’s to you and yours, and to mine and ours.And if mine and ours ever come across to you and yours,I hope you and yours will do as much for mine and ours,As mine and ours have done for you and yours!~Irish Toast St Patricks’ Day isn’t something that is too much of a big deal to me – it’s just another day. But I’ve been thinking today about one of the St Patrick Day’s when I was at uni, Michelle and I went and sat outside the LRV and had a drink on St Patricks Day. (so this would have been two or three years ago). It was warm.…

    >One Voice

    >“One voice can be stronger than a thousand voices.” – Captain Kathryn Janeway to Seven of Nine. (from the Star Trek: Voyager episode The Gift) One voice can be stronger than a thousand voices and that can be a very wonderful thing. People with strong voices have changed the world and shaped our history. And others with voices equally as strong have changed it in small ways too, influenced one person in a small way and shaped their life, made a difference to them. One voice can also be damaging. It’s something I’ve come to learn through my time as a CAB adviser. People, all people not just people in…
