The leading lady of your own life

I'm working as a personal assistant for a young disabled woman. She's full of energy and very active. Always looking out for a good time and exploring new horizons. Tomorrow, we are going to spend a day at the Zoo, in Antwerp, Belgium. We'll take the train and of course we will take pictures.

I'm proud of her. It's not that obvious or easy to go out if you are in a wheelchair. There's a lot of planning to do ahead and you have to be aware that not all places are wheelchair-friendly. It's good to know that the lady is independent and courageous and alive and kicking. She's taking control over her own life and she knows her abilities and boundaries. That's a good thing. As soon as you have found out what your abilities are, you can live up to them and enjoy life. I'm sure we'll have a good time.
