How’s it going? Today is June 9th, 2019.
I’m thankful that I’ve gotten to rest these days. (Rest doesn’t come easy for me at times; I’m working on that).
I have a question for you, and I am genuinely curious to see your answers.
I’m in a group on facebook where other women with Cerebral Palsy come together to share their experiences, joys, and to ask questions we probably couldn’t ask in ‘real life’.
In the group I posted a question:
How do you find purpose if you’re unemployed due to a physical or mental illness?
I’ve been struggling with this because I feel as though I’m in a constant state of letting time pass, or overworking myself when I decide to take on an art project, writing project, or a writing class.
To say that I am unsatisfied would be a lie. I’ve come far from where I was a few months ago, and I’m not ungrateful in the slightest. The scenery is different; it is beautiful here.
Now, I just have to figure out a new routine here, as a disabled person as well as an introvert.
This is why I wanted to ask you, the person reading this, how do you find purpose if you are disabled; or if like me, you are still searching for that fulfillment, what are you passionate about?
I’m so excited to hear what you have to say! Hopefully, we can learn from each other. I’ll see you soon.
