In my current class, I've been evaluating my skills, values and possibilities for my future. In my last assignment, I noted flexibility as something that's become essential for my survival. I keep going back and rereading what I wrote, because it feels important, and so very, very true.
"Flexibility in body, mind, and spirit is a recently acquired skill for me, but it's become defining. If a chronic, disabling disease is going to hold me down, I'm going to make an awesome life for myself on the floor."
