Written by: Earnst Ilang-Ilang , Travel Trainer | IL Specialist New Year's Day is a special holiday for most people – it represents many different translations; whether it's renewal, hope, optimism, or to put it mildly, an escape from the mistakes of the previous year. I have always been fascinated with the coming of a new year, mainly due to the reasons I stated earlier, but I also get to see other's motivations and stories that they tell themselves. The most common theme within embracing the new year is the “New Year's Resolution”.
Written by ECNV Consumer, Heather McDaniel Running has been an experience for me dating back to when I was young. I have been running since I was 11 years of age, and out of curiosity, it has turned into strength. Living with blindness has presented challenges, but it has given me the greatest gift of all, self-confidence. It seems that every day, comes another test, however, if I passed these tests, it gives the satisfaction of victory.
This introductory blogpost is penned by Earnst, one of our newest members at ECNV. As a formal mental health clinician, he describes the importance of taking charge of one's destiny despite adversity. He also shares his own personal struggle and disability, in an effort to inspire others to forge their own path.
