Hi Everyone,

Welcome to My Blog!

This is my first time writing a blog. I hope you will enjoy what you read here. My goal is that you will learn something too, possibly sharing your insights with me and others as well. On this blog, I plan to share the emotional and spiritual insights I have had and continue to have as a woman living with Cerebral Palsy.

I want to emphasize the words "living with" as opposed to the word "overcoming". It is my opinion that there is too much focus on overcoming disabilities in our society and not enough on living successfully with the limitations one has. To live successful with a disability, to me, means to take into account my limitations while at the same time not letting them overshadow my true abilities in my own mind. This is something that I continually strive to do. Some days are easier than others, G-d knows! I believe a disability is not something that is to be successfully overcome. Rather living successfully with a disability means to endure limitations while finding and celebrating your G-d given talents/gifts.

Welcome again! I look forward to hearing your thoughts!
