Living with cerebral palsy has been challenging but I have never allowed it to limit me in any way.
Two years ago I went in for reconstructive surgery after experiencing frequent falls and difficulty with my gait. A physical therapist was sent to my home to help me build back strength. When he saw how weak my leg was after surgery he was curious to know if I could even walk prior to the surgery. I showed him my pictures before the surgery and all he could say was "Wow! You live life with disability with great swag."
I was like, Yep! That's me!
Having swag, is personal to each individual, it has a lot to do with your personality and how you view life and those you surround yourself with.
No matter your circumstances, like me, you can create your own peculiar swag. I put in extra effort everyday so that my appearance can be pleasing to me and any one that beholds me, especially my lover and husband of over 23 years. .
It helps that he also plays the role of fashion critic, photographer and and all round in house cheerleader.
The guy still has the right words to make a girl feel like she's got it going on. And I believe him every single time! What can a girl do!
I am loving me!
