What I Learned by Not Letting My Limits Stop Me

You aren’t supposed to look like a pretzel when you are born.

But I did…

Because of my physical disability, independence is not an option. But I’ve accepted this fact for years. I don’t let limitations stop me from chasing any dream.

Several years ago, I started writing. I wasn’t planning to be a writer. Yet there was power in sharing stories with each other.

I uncovered the desire to tell my story. Though confidence in my writing came much later, I began the journey. And I learned many lessons along the way.

1. Embrace the story you’re living

For five years, I delayed writing. Until my thirtieth birthday was fast approaching.

I thought, My life doesn’t look like so-and-so’s. And I haven’t reached the next milestone. I compared. And I waited.

With time, I let go of years of self-imposed expectations, and a new perspective revealed itself — the beauty of telling the story of now.
