What and WHY I'm grateful today. I model this so others learn to put mindset OVER bullshit.

I used to REBUKE this quote! I’ve transitioned from fully-functional to the neglected world of severely disabled, chronically ill. It took YEARS to realize my strengths.

I accepted my physical limitations immediately. Well, not IMMEDIATELY but I damn sure accepted them, cried over them, begged for help with them. I seriously struggled, mentally, emotionally, spiritually. In my eyes, my heart, my head, I was less than a man, piss poor human, broken father. I couldn’t fathom being successful or loved in this world of disability, realm of pain, sea of despair.

Once I started a gratitude journal, my perspective changed, improved. I saw my limitations as real reasons to change. I stopped seeing life as negative. To BE better, I learned my love language, tested my wife and kids for love language and actually put things into place. I used brain hemispheres and learning styles in the same manner. I pushed myself to start yoga, meditation. All that increased my mobility.

Slowly, my problems transformed into opportunities. Slowly. I’m still learning the art of perspective but I KNOW it’s there. Now, after trials and tribulations, I am proof that problems are opportunities in disguise.
