Can-Do-Ability: Answers and Solutions from my personal experiences of living with a disability

Sitting Pretty

3 Dec 2013Violet Valentine's book, Sitting Pretty for Chicks in Chairs, is a ‘must have' book on the bookshelf for us chicks that want to achieve their dreams of living the life they want.

I love Violet's wisdom:

  • ‘Females, stop comparing yourself to other women.'
  • Change your expectations of yourself and others
  • Know the substance of the man you are going to marry (I totally vouch for that one. Your partner needs to have as much guts as you to cope with it all).
  • Ensure your wardrobe expresses your gorgeousness.

    Thanks Violet, I absolutely loved reading your book – it gave me more courage (if that's possible) to go after what I want!
