    This vision loss thing has knocked me down hard plenty of times over the past year. And I know I’m not alone when it comes to the pain of this and other knock-out blows that life occasionally delivers. The only real question is how to get back on our feet once we regain consciousness and […]

    I never gave much thought to the word Disability until I was slapped with that label and told to expect widespread stigma and social isolation.

    Just Do Your Best

    Posted on January 22, 2018 by in Featured

    I am dragging this morning. Usually, I would force myself to head into the office anyway. But because I’ve vowed to focus on health, happiness and passion, I’m working from home this morning – and allowing for plenty of breaks along the way. As I was drinking my morning coffee in bed an hour ago […]
