Aspirations and a little bit of creating

I think this heat is getting to me! I'm staying up lately because it's its just so hot! this is a wee wall plaque I did last night, my office walls are looking decidedly bare. Where I work we base our service on the Strengths Model.
Its a way of thinking that is a little bit outside the usual medical or social models for disability services, and once you get your head around it, it makes alot of sense, these days people do (thankfully) tend to focus on people's strengths, but its a little more than that, have a read here for more detailed information.
So in light of that, I happened upon a quote that I really like, I'm not usually one for quotes or self help type things, but I think this quote says alot. So I pinked and blinged my desk ( LOVE working on stuff for me only!) and this is what I made:
Aspirations...
Achievement rather than solving problems,
with thriving more than just surviving,
with dreaming and hoping rather than just coping
and with triumph over trauma.
