Resolutions for this year are a little different after working on them with my daughter. She would like to do more volunteer work, learn some yoga, write more short stories and poems, attend a bible study, network with other people and complete her personal list of goals. She already called and made an appointment to meet with a supervisor to assist older people with art's and craft projects. The library had a few books on beginning yoga and stretching exercises. So she is well on her way!
I have to give her a lot of credit learning to compensate with her challenges. She chose activities with her challenges in mind, and will need to explain them to the supervisor at their meeting.
We live in a small town and she has found it difficult to get past the challenges during interviews, but she is determined!
Whatever she does do, she commits herself to her promises.
Her strengths are advocacy and leadership. She would be a wonderful motivational speaker on the subject of invisible disabilities.
As we move into the new year, it will be interesting to watch how my daughter handles her new resolutions.
My money is on her success!
