Sometimes it's easy for me to get stuck and unmotivated. I know that I have to try harder to go out and be with people, but I make excuses such as the following: I get too tired, I don't want to have to cancel my attendant care too many times, I have too much work to do.
But every once in awhile, something comes along that motives me. Last weekend, I was at the People in Motion show in Toronto, which is an annual trade show for people with disabilities. I saw some really neat things. The Ontario Wheelchair Sports Association had a booth there featuring information about a number of different adapted sports. There was also an organization called Wheel Dance, which offers dancing for people with disabilities. I took some information from both organizations and signed up for their mailing lists.
I know that I need to be proactive in kickstarting my social life, but going to where there is a lot of information about different opportunities is very inspiring for me. It excites me to think about trying new things and meeting new people.
