“It is really hard, because it's the kind of thing that a lot of people don't really understand. They don't have a lot of sympathy ... Because they think it's the kind of thing where you can always try again, or that it's not that big of a deal, but it really is.”
“Make the most of every moment. Get excited about every little thing. Why not? Why not have your wonderful moment of excited anticipation? Why not be happy NOW? This is my greatest challenge, but something I'm pouring my heart into: learning how to enjoy what I have, right here, right now. Every moment is precious and although sometimes I struggle to see it, I see it more and more every day.”
