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!

Hi Becca! Your page looks amazing and already I have learned from what you have written. Maybe that is true for all of us in some (smaller) way too? I look forward to reading more! And I love you always, Samantha

What you've written is so beautiful and so important. Thank you.

I completely share your conviction that there is too much focus in our society on overcoming disability rather than living successfully with the limitations one has. A friend of mine observed that there is a very Calvinist streak to the "health" emphasis in our society. People seem to think that if you "try" hard enough (usually this means taking vitamins or herbs or seeing a natural healer) you can be "cured." I often feel that my disbelief that I will be "healed" by such "cures" is interpreted as a tacit complicity with my M.S. I can't compare my limitations with yours, but I do appreciate your insight.
