La-Ven-Fla or La-Ven-Die

As a part of cerebral palsy, speech can be tricky to pronounce clearly and for others to understand me. For an example, I spent a hour trying to say the word lavender as it came up in conversation with my boyfriend. However, no matter how I tried it kept coming out as la-ven-fla or la-ven-die which was very funny at the time. In the end after a hour, I eventually persisted enough to pronounce lavender correctly. If you are looking for a moral to this story, you can say if you want something that seems like an unreachable goal, persist until it becomes possible.
