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.
