New challenges ahead

Last Update: January 25, 2019

I am perhaps a bit late joining 2019, felt confident of a good year ahead, however life had other idea's as per usual, I suffered a stroke which as had quite an impact on my vision and has made it a bit difficult reading and focusing, still early days and who knows what the eye doctor might come up with, I am blessed that it was not more serious and grateful for the good support I have around me.

So it is now just a matter of working out the best solution to get me back on track, one thing I do know is that it will not stop me pushing ahead with my business plans and personal goals.

I give a big thanks to Kyle for his SWAG program it helped me big time, however I cannot leave out Carson, Jay and the community here at WA, it is heart warming to received such dedicated people who sincerely help others on the path to success.

I still feel confident that this will be a good year there will be no doubt many changes ahead of us all and more improvements here at WA, they certainly have their finger on the pulse and I am always excited to see what the gang are bringing to the community, never a dull moment.

Wishing everyone a great year ahead

So sorry to hear about your stroke, Katie. You write very well in spite of it. I have a friend who has been blind from birth, and she uses the software that will read her the emails and dictates her responses. I wonder if something like that would make life easier for you while you are recovering. You're not alone with your stroke. Do you know Marmar? She is also in the process of recovering from a stroke and might have some pointers for you. Will keep you in my thoughts and prayers for a quick and full recovery. Carol

You are certainly welcome, Katie. Having been an occupational therapist in my past life, I am always interested in how people's recovery is coming along.

KatieMac,
So sorry to hear of the recent events, but grateful that you are mending. Live has a way of showing up along.

You will be on the prayer list, and know that we are hoping for the best for you.

With technology, this may be your signal to learn to use the new apps that take spoken word and turn it to printed form. Have been curious about that medium for a while. I will be in line for tutorials.

The ability to work on your business as you are gaining your strength and keeping contact with W A will ensure you don't let your interests go away.

Best wishes,
Sami

Hello Katie.
I was wondering why I hadn't heard from you in a wee while.
Sorry to hear you had a stroke but as you say it wasn't too serious.
Are you still going to live in Scotland or going to your daughters down south?
Whatever or wherever you go you are still here at WA and lots to do to keep building our businesses.
Myself and a few others are going to start a program so if you're interested I can send you a PM.
No hurry as its early days and you don't want to rush things or get into anything new just yet.
Take it easy and have a great Friday and the weekend to come.
Robert

Gosh leave Scotland never lol have one daughter up near Carnoustie the other one down south is moving up nearer to her sister, am bit shaky but mobile this will not stop we just needed some time away from everything I am steadily recovering and hoping my eyes repair cleaver what they can do have got glasses that have prisms in it and it helps me see single vision etc, otherwise I am seeing double and distorted images that move around..I am blessed as it happened when I was driving I would have been beside myself if I caused an accident luckily I was near my daughters. The program you speak of sounds interesting would like to know more, I am pacing myself and setting out new schedule till I return to full power so to speak, have a great weekend

No probs Katie, and as I said, no rush.
Just you get your eyes seen to first or you wont be able to do much of anything.
Good you will have your daughters in Scotland.
I will PM you with a link to my web page so you can take a look at the videos.
Now I'm off home to make myself some eats.
Take care.
