My immature thinking

29 Nov

Age is not always a guarantee of maturity and in my case it’s absolutely true. I would love to be able to write a different blog about maturity, of the things that make me mature emotionally, with other people, but my reality is that although I have physically grown up, my thinking hasn’t matured with it.

A thought from Barack Obama

23 Nov

I was pleased to see this message from Barack Obama to his children on the back of Donald Trump’s  election win. It not only shows Barack’s concern for that of his children, but it’s also a positive sentiment through what he sees as uncertain times ahead.

There are still parts of the jigsaw that I’m dealing with that I’m trying to piece together, with regard to my Cerebral Palsy injury.

I continue to have to work out what my symptoms are, then equate those symptoms back to my neurological difficulties to work out the answers. Sounds simple, yet in reality it’s difficult …
