THE WILL

I’VE NOTICED A WAY TIGER, R CAT, & I ARE SOMEWHAT THE SAME:

TIGER'S ROOM & "KITTY TIME OUT" R IN THE LAUNDRY ROOM. TIGER CAN SOMETIMES LET HIMSELF OUT OF THE LAUNDRY ROOM–LIKE IF HE HEARS US & WANTS 2 GET OUT, SUPER BAD…IT MOTIVATES HIM, & SINCE HE WANTS OUT REALLY BAD, & NO1 LETS HIM OUT, HE HAS LEARNED 2 DO IT HIMSELF.

I CAN TOTALLY RELATE. SO MANY THINGS, I’VE LEARNED OUT OF NECESSITY, BECAUSE, LIKE TIGER, I CAN BE ALONE RIGHHT WHEN I NEED HELP, &, LIKE TIGER MAY “MEOW” AT THE DOOR, I’M NOT UNDERSTOOD, BY MY GRUNTS AS 2 WHAT I NEED!

A GREAT EXAMPLE: A WHILE BACK, I WAS TRYING 2 C SEVERAL PHOTO CDS THAT WERE SENT 2 ME. I WAITED SEVERAL DAYS 4 SOME1 2 HAVE A HUGE CHUNK OF TIME THAT WAS NEEDED 2 HELP ME. I FINALLY DECIDED 2 WAIT UNTIL THE DAY MY CAREGIVER, CARA, CAME. SHE PUT A CD IN, & LEFT 2 WORK ON LAUNDRY 4 MY KIDS—SHE HAD TONS OF LAUNDRY —SO MUCH, I FELT GUILTY RINGING MY BELL 2 GET HER ATTENTION. SO, I CHOSE 2 WAIT 4 HER. AFTER LIKE 20 MIN., I GOT TIRED OF WAITING. I COULD'VE RANG, BUT KNEW SHE WAS BUSY. IT WAS SUCH A SMALL TASK, I DECIDED 2 TRY IT MYSELF B4 I RANG. LIKE TIGER'S "MEOWS,"I'M SURE I GRUNTED AS I TRIED 2 FIND THE STRENGTH 2 LIFT MY ARM 2 CHANGE CDS (4 SOME REASON, NOISE/GRRUNTS MAKE ME STRONGER). I KNOW CARA HEARD & CAME. SHE OFFERED 2 DO IT, BUT LET ME DO IT WHEN I REFUSED. (I WAS SO CLOSE!) LIKE TIGER'S WILL 2 GET OUT OF A ROOM, I FOUND THE STRENGTH 2 LIFT MY ARM 2 CHANGE CDS!

ALSO LIKE TIGER, THERE R TIMES I CAN'T DO IT, & RESORT 2 JST SITTING BY SOMETHING, & BUILDINGGGUP THE STRENGTH 2 DO WHAT I NEED 2 DO. I ADMIT, MY STUBBORNNESS SHOWS: I KNOW I HAVE DONE IT ONCE, SO EVEN IF I'D APPRECIATE A BREAK & HAVE HELP, I REFUSE 2 ASK 4 HELP. BUT, LIKE TIGER, WHEN PUSH COMES 2 SHOVE, SOMETHING I COULDN'T DO A MINUTE AGO, SUDDENLY IS POSSIBLE, & LIKE TIGER, I OPEN A DOOR 2 FREEDOM.
