Perception is skin deep

I have been thinking a lot about one’s perception lately. Then someone posted this youtube video and it made me rethink things that honestly one’s perception are simply skin deep. Think about it you make judgments when you first meet someone. When I am out and people ask me what I do I reply that I work for myself the look of shock on people’s face continually makes me laugh they are shocked before they even know what I do. Then when I tell them I am a blogger (and sometimes explain what that means. ) people again seem amazed which often really makes me laugh later.

You may be wondering why I would laugh

I laugh because honestly anyone can be a blogger. Anyone can do what I do. You just have to enjoy it enough to stick with it. The internet is not a get rich quick scheme – anyone who tries to tell you so, is irresponsible. You can read the post I wrote about my responsibility as a blogger. I don’t think that my physical ability or perceived lack thereof should reflect on my professional ability. I mean I know I write about my disability but aside from the topic of choice I don’t understand why people find my profession so impressive?

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.
