Gratitude is postive emotion that is felt after an individual receives help from another. I find it helpful to keep a daily gratitude journal to keep a list of what we are grateful to have and receive. It is a very learning exercise that helps improve our postive out look on life. Meditation practice s another excellent tool to help with reflecting on what we appreciate in life.  During my meditation practice I always honor what I receives today while embracing the good things in life. My yoga practice has taught me to be thankful for what we have while appreciating any kind of help or support received.  When we only focus on what we don’t have or should received it only brings about negativity.  When we have too much negativity it can bring us weigh us down with depression and angry feelings.  Gratitude teaches us to appreciate everything in life while living in a loving peaceful place filled with happiness.

There is a very strong connection between my three passions in life, which results in fulfilling my purpose in life.  As I have stated before many times my goal is to keep disability issues in the spotlight while helping and inspiring others.  I believe that through my writing my column is one of the best ways for me to discuss disability issues and promote awareness while sharing resources within the community.

I have been an activist for my entire life, with me first advocating for myself and now through my personal experiences.  I have always advocated for the rights of those with disabilities while helping others cope with everyday life.  My yoga practice has helped me to stay focused and center my dedication to helping others through karma yoga.  Due in large part to my column, I am gathering information on a proposed book on how society has failed people with disabilities
