I have wanted to do this video for a long time now. As you probably know one of my favorite pieces is a long dress. I have a few Rua Luja dresses and I decided to show them to you. I like dresses because I don’t need to be worried about showing my bum as I do when I am wearing jeans. Also, long dresses because of cover my legs.
It is so easy to wake in the morning and wear something easy and posh at the same time. Its kind of put together in less than 2 minutes. I have a post on Rua Luja and my experience with them and Inthink its worth to check it out.
No-one ever dreams of being disabled, but millions of unfortunate people face the transition every single day. During the initial stage, you’ll no doubt face a ton of emotional stress, mental struggles, and physical discomfort. At this point, most disabled people have very little motivation for life, because they feel it will never be the same.
Now, while it may not be the same, you can still live life to the full. You can still create amazing memories, find true happiness and forge amazing relationships. You just need to endure the difficult phases, have faith in the process and do your best during the transition. To provide you with some help, here are some things to consider…
Take your time
It’s natural for those with disabilities to fear the worst because they just see the short-term changes that cause them distress. They fail to focus long-term, which would empower them to realise things can – and will – get better. Just remember to take your time and approach things at your own pace.
Focus on what you can do
You’ll probably concentrate on all the things that you can no longer do, right? That’s what causes the most emotional distress; the realisation that you can’t do things that you once found easy. Rather than dwelling on those, just focus on all of the things that you can still do.
You may well lose a certain amount of independence with a disability, but you never lose your pride. That pride can sometimes prevent those who need help to reject it, simply because they so desperately want to be able to do it themselves still. Come to terms with your disability and accept help from those around you.
Find a community
There’s a countless number of people who are in the same situation as you or have been through the challenges that you face. Whether it’s online or in your local area, just find a support group of people that you can talk to on a regular basis. When you do that, you’ll realise that you’re not alone.
All of the negative energy that you’re full of is hard to eradicate considering your position, but you still need to try and remove it. Search for all the positives in every situation, rather than allowing the negatives to affect you. Being positive will help you massively through the process.
Believe: You will be fine!

How are you doing? A few weeks ago I tried a new sport. I filmed it all so you could understand how I did it.
It was challenging to go on the water and transfer to the boat. They have volunteers to assist and they make your life much easier. I have friends from tennis that invite me all the time but it was through Fiona G that sent a message to my husband on Linkedin and made us very interested.
It is an open session that takes place every Thursday at Queens Mary Sailability here in London. I didn’t know they had that facility. What a great place.
Please take a look at the video and let me know if you have any questions or comments.
Do you suffer from PMT? I do and I would love to hear your tips and advice on how to deal with it. It affects my mood and I have a strong desire for chocolate. This video is a talk where I found a place to express myself and listen to your advice.
Let me know how it affects you and how you deal with it.
