What I am Grateful For

If I’m completely honest, being blind kinda sucks for many, many reasons and when people think of being blind bad things are usually all that come to mind. There are so many things that I’ve missed out on because of my blindness. Having said that though I wouldn’t change having had this experience for the world because as much as being blind has meant I miss out on a lot of things I think it’s given me just as much in return. And as a result I am truly grateful for having had this experience. So I thought I would share some of the things that have made me grateful for having this experience.

  1. I have met so many amazing people that I would not have met if I wasn’t visually impaired or example my best friend.
  2. I can read with my fingers! and I don’t know about you, but I think that it is pretty cool.
  3. I think blindness has taught me that we have to be grateful for everything we have because some people don’t have what most others would take so easily for granted.
  4. It has allowed me to see people at their best and at their worst.
  5. Being blind has given me countless opportunities to prove everyone wrong and surpass everyone’s expectations, including my own.
  6. It has taught me that you have to stand up for yourself because there will come a point when no one else can.

These are only a few of the reasons I could come up with on the spot, but there are so many more, too many to list, and it has made me the person I am today. So even though being blind still kinda sucks, I wouldn’t trade having had this experience for the world.
