Assumptions are the short cuts I made to focus my ambition

Fed by what I was told,

And never considering the motivation of the people who knew best.

In this holding pattern of a year,

I keep asking myself, why not try?

And, I notice that every single one of the things I couldn’t do,

Because bodies like mine can’t,

Everything on that list is being done, and done better.

Because I took the time to try

And the time to practice paying attention.

My ambition has grown in 2020

I don’t have to be alone

I am a writer with an extremely active imagination. I love learning answers to questions and what makes everything and everyone tick. I am a "Unique case, medically" if nothing else. I am flawed in my extreme aversion to failure (even when "success" isn't good for me,) but have come a long way in ditching the perfectionist mindset. I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty
