Second guessing…takes too much time

In my previous blog-posts, I have not talked much about how I live with a disability and that is mainly because I am writing about my everyday life, and while my Cerebral Palsy affects my everyday life, it is not something that I always think about and focus on.

I’m back!! I know, I am a couple days late, but guess what?? Another excuse…

There is a teacher out of the country in Korea visiting his sick father-in-law, and I have been asked to come in and teach all of his classes. For those of you math people, I am teaching Geometry honors, Algebra 2, Algebra 2 honors and Precalculus. I have been preparing, but I made time for my favorite people in the world…YOU!

In my previous blog-posts, I have not talked much about how I live with a disability and that is mainly because I am writing about my everyday life, and while my Cerebral Palsy affects my everyday life, it is not something that I always think about and focus on.

This came up in my life this week, while I am in the process of looking for a new job, because at this point (hopefully it changes soon) there are no open jobs where I am now, even though they really want to keep me. I was on the phone with a headhunter and on the application, it asked me about something “technical” I have experience in, and I mentioned ILiveWithADisability.com (ILWAD). The lady who was interviewing me, told me that she looked at the website and was so inspired and absolutely loved it. She then asked, why it was not on my resume. She then went on to explain how the website showed my willingness and ability to create a community that is focused on the individual (…brilliant!). That is exactly what I have been saying to all the schools that I have been applying to, but didn’t realize that I had already been there and doing that! I had no answer for her, other than, “I don’t know where to put it.” I found a place! My resume now has ILiveWithADisability.com (ILWAD) on it. I am so proud of what has been done here and am so excited to continue and grow, and continue to see the conversations that you are having with each other. You really inspire me…

I want to know about a time when you haven’t been sure about a reaction you would get about something, but then you got support and did it, and how amazing it felt!

  1. Don’t eat to much humble pie brother. Nothing wrong with some shameless self promo from time to time – specifically when you are doing the right thing for the right reasons. ~signed @ronberume
