WORTH: I was just reading an article about Hollywood actresses negotiating equal pay. But worth isn’t just about money. It’s about how we value our time - something that is super important to me now since I don’t know how much time I have left on this planet which I get is hard for people to wrap their head around - and it’s also how we value ourselves. How we allow ourselves to be treated. How we prioritize our needs. Women, in particular, are told from Day One that we are less valuable than men. Our opinions, our wants, our goals are not as important - to the point that middle school girls start raising their hands less in school. “My opinion or question isn’t worth as much as the boys.” No. We need to change that messaging. For me, it’s hard to say my needs are important, especially now that I live in this barely functioning body. Sharing my needs can mean the difference between pain or no pain later that day. It’s a work in progress, that’s FOR SURE! Learning every day...is hard. But stuffing my feelings and needs down inside is much, much harder. #learning#lifelesson#wordoftheweek#power#disabled#disability#needs#therapy#codependency#recovery#grouptherapy#mentalhealth#mentalhealthawareness#art#myart#arttherapy#growth#transformation#healing 💫

Piper: Today I was on top of my alerts! My girl was busy getting all of our bow ties, collar flowers, and pupooshkas for our first @chronicallypersevering_instyle event, @dogbowlfun ! Even though she was busy she made sure to eat all of her meals, drink her cornstarch shakes, and do everything necessary to maintain her health. Even with my girl doing everything right, her blood sugar had other plans. Thankfully I tagged along with her around the house and yard today to provide all of the alerts to keep her safe! I consistently alerted at 80 every time, which is our goal! This gives my girl plenty of time to treat her low blood sugar before we have to worry! I can’t wait until I can keep her safe everywhere! #servicepuppiper#opietheservicedog#servicedogintraining#vizsla#vizslapuppy#wirehairedvizsla#hypoglycemia
My new favorite dance partner ❤️ Taught my first movement class at Midwest Special Services today, and of course Mazin found his way into the spotlight, per usual. I’m always so blown away by his confidence and outspokenness, which is a testament to the individualized programs at MWSS that encourage people with intellectual and physical disabilities to reach their personal and professional goals, especially when it comes to performance and the arts. He always takes the lead, and I love watching him reach for what some would see as impossible - and, to him, nothing is 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 #seepossibility#mindovermatter
"You can't expect to see change if you never do anything differently." @rajath_kr28 shares one of many the beautiful experiences which he witnesses every Sunday at the Special Needs Home For Men - Social Service Complex. "In one way or the other, the men always surprise us and leave us speechless. But this one is really a blinder. A few volunteers were teaching the men alphabets and numbers. Mahadeva asked us what was going on in his sign language. After we explained to him, he too wanted to try. We wrote down a set of alphabets and rest was one beautiful sight to watch. (in pic is Mahadeva writing the alphabet) He previously didn't know what the alphabet is, but the urge to learn everything is his passion. I think that the men are not specifically challenged ones, but are the ones with super power. They tend to learn things with dedication and commitment. They learn at their own pacr. But once they do, they never forget. We learn lot from them. They surprise us time and again by showing us what they are capable of. It takes months or even years to see the any progress, but it's worth waiting for. Even the smallest of changes mean a lot and witnessing it is one of the greatest feelings in the world."
