The next time you are at a restaurant, imagine trying to read the menu. Or, imagine yourself in a class room trying to read what the teacher is writing on the board. Just imagine trying so hard to see that your concentration is broken, and the problems start to multiply. You arent seeing and you can?t listen for trying to see and listen.
Consequently, imagine being placed in Special Education because the teacher just doesnt know how to teach you or doesn?t have or take the time to address your special needs. Imagine being told You wont make it. Then look how far Ive come! Think of how you started out to meet new people and how you tried to make friends. Imagine how other people perceived you as a whole/regular person!This is something that haunts me on a daily basis, but with perseverance and self-motivation, and the encouragement of a few, I have been able to overcome. This book is not just a story of an individual.
This is a story about having faith to overcome obstacles. Now, when I envision my struggles and hardships, I can see the challenges that I have had to overcome just to make it along my pathway. In spite of my vision, I have had to look beyond my obstacles to endure in a world without limits. I have learned to live my life like the wind, to speed up when necessary, and to know when to slow down. I have had to slow down when life pushed so hard and fast that even my consumption of air felt uncertain.
I had to slow down when I couldnt see where I was going or coming from. I had to stop and realize what I had in front of me. So it is, when you cannot find what youre looking for what you want in someone else, look inside yourself. Dont sweat the small things, and make the best of the big things.Cherish the experiences youve had, and use the lessons youve learned. Our lives are rubber bands- bending and stretching to fit even the most awkward situations. You can adapt to anything, regardless of its size or shape. You just have to realize and use what you have in your own hands and persevere.
