What You Missed That Day You Were Absent From Fourth Grade

 I am is a vital piece of information about yourself.....like Paddington Bear you attach labels to yourself to remember just who you are. Eventually you realise that what I am today is not what I am tomorrow therefore I am nothing..... and everything. I watched a program today about disabled people looking for work and noticed how often they let the disability take pride of place in their CV the first thing they felt they had to say was I am.......whatever. They also say I am not my wheelchair for example..... but in truth even in saying you are not you are still bringing that to the fore and thus it can become who you are. If you go for an interview start with your skills and experience and end on the wheelchair or disability. Who I am and who you are is very much the same thing at the end of the day we just present ourselves differently. If only we had the courage to write I am amazing at the beginning of our CV we could advance ourselves more and really be proud to say I am...... x
