It has been a trying time for me. I have been on a journey to rediscover what makes me feel truly present in my daily life. If you are reading this then I am sure you are aware of my history. I spent the first 16 years of my life with very minimal communication. Just enough to communicate the basics. When I found spelling to communicate it changed my whole life for the better, but it also meant that my whole life changed. I was no longer the player on the sidelines, I was the quarterback. Ask Foles, it ain’t easy. It meant the decisions were mine to make. I have to admit that it gets hard. Some days I find myself so overwhelmed by the responsibility of making the right decisions. It might sound crazy, but it is new to me. I share these thoughts as a way of saying it’s okay if sometimes life gets the best of you. I can admit that I feel that way sometimes. But in this next season of my life I want to be as present in those moments of uncertainty as I am through every victory. This is how to make the most of the time we have.
