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!


how to turn frustration into something useful

Have you ever been in a situation which caused you to become frustrated? I’ve been there, too, and it is not fun at all!
There’s good news, though. Our frustration can be turned into something useful. In order to explain this concept, I will give you an example from my own life.When I started my business, I couldn’t help but notice that there are certain resources that aren’t accessible to those of us who are blind or visually impaired. I have two choices: I could complain and become frustrated, or I can turn my frustration into an opportunity to learn to be more flexible and find more accessible alternatives.
However, you do not need to be blind or own a business to turn your frustration into something positive and much more productive. For example, let’s say that you are sitting in traffic, and you are going to be late for an appointment. In fact, there is so much traffic that you have to take another route altogether if you want to make it at all. Doesn’t that just frustrate the pants off of you?
Now, let’s look at your situation from another perspective. You were so frustrated by the traffic that you chose another route. Now, you just learned a whole new route that could save you time and money in the future. Isn’t that more exciting than remaining frustrated?

overcoming perceived limitations

Many of our so-called limitations come from our own perceptions of ourselves. If I listened to everyone who told me that something wasn’t possible for me, I wouldn’t be doing much of anything!
Although I was born blind, my first memorable spiritual experience was a vision. I believe that the spirits began to teach me to overcome perceived limitations at a very young age. My first vision taught me that although I do not have physical sight, my soul does not have that limitation. From my first vision, I also learned that God and Jesus exist outside of the church. My self-perceptions have been challenged several times throught my life. Although I still have a long journey ahead of me, my accomplishments came as a result of overcoming limitations. Now, I challenge you to overcome yours. Is there an area of your life where you feel limited? Now, ask yourself if that’s just your perception of the situation. If so, it may not be easy, and it may not even happen overnight, but it is possible to overcome your perceived limitations and live your life as you were meant to. After all, you deserve it!
