I have been working on catching up on my sleep lately, and that is why it's been awhile since my last post. I had the experience of talking to many students who are studying to become teachers at Loyola Marymount University in L.A. in November. My brother told me there might be other schools that would like me to speak also.
For the past few months I have been learning about family changes that will affect my future, and that can get very stressful for me. Coping with change and stress is hard if you do not keep up with it. I have to realize that my support system may be changing, and it is hard for me to talk about it.
I feel it's important for people who have challenges to start making plans for their future ahead of time so you can keep up with how you are doing regularly. That is why it is important to stay focused on the positive sides our your life. Then you will see less negativity.
Being positive keeps us stronger. I believe in encouraging people with challenges to learn about their talents, strengths, abilities, and qualities that will help them in life. But, it is also about teamwork, where we responsibly share the positive sides of life. Then we pray that people can learn to see who they are for themselves and to enjoy life.
