It is difficult to face shortcomings in your own life. No one of us is perfect. We all have things we can improve on. We all have things that we should be working on to correct. We all have traits in our personalities that preclude other traits that might be a more beneficial in certain situations. Sometimes you have to swallow your pride and look yourself in the mirror and realize there maybe something that you should correct. I had this situation in the last week and let me tell you it sucks.
I guess what I am saying is that I was told that I need to learn to slow down and become far more deliberate in my actions. I know I wasn’t, but I had the feeling that I was a corned dog. Due to my new situation I really do need to learn to be more deliberate. I need to take the time to plan things out, instead of going by the seat of my pants. Let me tell you it is going to be a challenge to change a pretty entrenched part of my personality. Like so much else lately I am just going to need to change.
Last night I had the opportunity to go to the Lacrosse game. I had never been to one before and I had great time. I will admit I had another beer during the game. I tasted quite good. I had a ball last night. Good ole’ Average Joe was helped a brother out and got me and Erika to the game. We have a lacrosse team in Phoenix and I am sure I will got to a game or two.
Today in wheelchair class we went out and headed into the neighborhood for some endurance training. And of course, I got a flat tire. At the time of the flat we were pretty much at the bottom of the hill. Getting back up the hill was difficult to say the least. I actually needed some help. My shoulder that the flat was on began to hurt. But all was OK once I got back to the prison.
Time is quickly coming to a close here at Craig. I really can feel the pressure of leaving. Today I had another chance to get behind the wheel. The way it work is that there is a handle to the right of the steering wheel that if you push in the brake is applied and pulling down is applying the gas. I seem to have a pretty good handle of how the controls work and I will be back on the road before you know it.
I also wanted to say the Dodge Magnum may now be off the list for cars when I get home. I am looking at a van that sits a little lower. With my length most cars are difficult to get into. If any one out in Internet land knows of a good mini van let me know.
Have a great Tuesday.
