You are confined only by the walls you build yourself.
This is why I had so much fun at Revitalise.
People made friends with me and it had nothing to do with my ‘disability’. When a barrier came up there was a strong voice ready to find a work around.
For example, the shock on the managers face when he was asked to accommodate 4 wheelchair users at one booth, it was priceless, but he couldn’t refuse just because of the determination of one particular volunteer backed up by the rest of the volunteers.
We had the best time enjoying dessert, around that table we were all friends helping each other.
Being at Revitalise reminded me even more how the world isn’t designed to accommodate us which is why these centres are essential.
You know what I’m going to say funding is a big issue. I will come back to that soon 😉
