Is it time to stop taking life so seriously?

While some people may choose to view blindness as a tragedy and pity me, I choose to make light of it when the opportunity presents itself.
For example, there were a few times that I was talking to someone, and that person left the room without telling me. I kept talking until I realized that the other person wasn’t answering me. She came back, and I told her what happened. My friend apologized for leaving the room without saying anything, and we both had a good laugh over it.
In one instance, a family friend bought a large container of catnip for his furry companion, and he showed it to me. We were having spaghetti for dinner, and the container of catnip felt similar to the container of parmesan cheese. I poured a small amount into my hand and got ready to sprinkle it onto my spaghetti. My mother grabbed my arm and asked what I was doing, and we had a good laugh.
During both of these incidents, I could have gotten annoyed with myself or even engaged in self-pity. However, I chose to laugh. I refer to these types of incidents as the perks of being blind. Laughter can brighten the most serious or embarrassing situations.
Laughter can also raise one’s vibration, so take some time to have a good laugh at your own expense!

  1. Love your story about the catnip. I’m blind too and my best friend and I always joke that it takes a lot for us to be embarrassed due to the purely awkward situations we face as blind people. We are just numb to it. Lol
