Picture yourself as a solo traveler returning home from a foreign land, unable to move without your wheelchair - a piece of essential equipment left behind by the flight attendants. That's the challenging predicament Jana found herself in after a trip to Costa Rica - a paraplegic stranded in the jetway with no way to navigate through customs. We share this personal experience, not just to narrate an unsettling travel experience, but to underline a critical lesson about advocating for our needs, especially when these needs are not immediately understood or considered by others and also to show that we deal with obstacles every day. We all deal with obstacles and some seem insurmountable. Spinning Positive, asking empowering questions, and Responding opens new possibilities and can turn conflict into collaboration.
Switching gears, let's talk about finding that elusive silver lining, even in the face of adversity. Using the airport incident as a backdrop, I'll walk you through my journey of maintaining a positive outlook and finding gratitude in a less than ideal situation. We'll discuss how focusing on the brighter side of things and the bigger picture can help us sail through difficulty. Remember, it's not just about surviving the storm, but learning how to dance in the rain. So, join me, as we discover together, the importance of never shying away from speaking our truth, even when the odds seem stacked against us.
