Driving Mr. Jordan

I don’t drive I never have. Cerebral palsy makes it so that I don’t have the reflexes for it. This means someone has to drive me everywhere I go. I can’t just decide that I’m going to the movies on Monday night and make it happen. Everything had to be planned for most of my life. That is until I got a personal assistant named Jane a few months back. This has completely changed my life. I still have to plan more than the average person to go somewhere, but now I have someone at my disposal that’s willing to drive me wherever I would like to go

It may not seem like much, but imagine not being able to do the simplest thing, like going to get a drink from the convenience store without imposing on somebody else. Most of you will never have to experience this but for some of you who are in situations similar to mine, you know exactly what I’m talking about. Having Jane has given me the freedom that I’ve wanted all my life. You may not be lucky enough to have a personal assistant yet. The key word there is is yet. I spent many days being frustrated because I didn’t have the freedom that I wanted. I knew at some point things would change and eventually they did. All it took was having persistence to look for that person who was willing to offer me that freedom. As I said earlier in a previous post. Persistence is key, figure out what you want or need and work toward making it happen every day until it does. The video below was shot at my office after having lunch with Jane. I just decided I needed a change of scenery. It happened for me, and it can happen for you
