Limitations means unique opportunity: what are you truly capable of?

Chances are if you have landed on this blog you either have a disability yourself, or know someone with one. While looking for a topic to write about, this one came to me. Disability aside, the only limiting factor in my life: is me. Yes you read that right: the only limiting factor in my life is me. I ask you this:If you stop looking at yourself as differently-abled for a second, and see yourself as a member of society who has something to offer. Now, like you this was once hard for me also. That is, until I realized that in my case my disability is strictly physical. Once I realized that if I could find something that I could contribute without needing to rely on my physical abilities, my world changed.

Limitations means unique opportunity

So I would bet you are keenly aware of your limitations brought to your focus by the nagging reality of this label called disability, But have you ever stopped to think of your disability as a unique opportunity? Allow me to explain: I am pretty sure that your life experiences have shaped you and trust me as boring as you may think your story is. but I promise you I thought the same thing then started this blog and realized that this is a myth. I learned from starting this blog that despite you feeling like your story may not be powerful enough to share, someone will relate to you and thus gain insight into their own situation and that it’s core is the basis for this blog. In fact, if I hadn’t thought outside the box and looked past my limitations I probably wouldn’t be sitting here typing this trying to come up new and engaging ways to interact with you all. if anyone had told me in the summer of 2009 that I would be online blogging about my life I would have looked at you like you were nuts. But a few short months later that is actually what I began doing.

Do you know what opportunity is possible if you followed your dreams?

Do you know what opportunity is possible if you followed your dreams? I quickly realized that I love blogging and thus it seems like a natural thing for me to be doing. Maybe writing is not your thing maybe YouTube is more your style or podcasting the point is there is a lot of opportunity online.

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.
