Mission 2010: emphasize quality of life.
We have spent so much time and energy looking for the root of the problem, waiting for answers, going to treatment and appointments, searching for answers. . .
We now have the answers that are available. We know the professionals who will continue to guide us on this journey. The medication regimine has helped stabilize many symptoms.
The time has come to shift our focus from what and why. . . . to how?
How can we make the most of our lives? How can we spend our time with quality? How can we take what we have learned and give back?
I have found that changing my focus has helped me reflect on the blessings in our lives and look for new opportunities to enjoy life. I want Sean to have a postive life. I want him to see the potential in his life, to realize all he has to offer, despite his disabilities.
How do we begin to do this? Well, we start with a surprising opportunity, add a few roadblocks (because without them the plot would stagnate), and slowly work toward changing our attitudes.
