The Social Experience......Helping the Unsigned Artist Get Heard!!!
Real talk. Having a bad attitude is more crippling then a physical or mental disability. There are people who have disabilities that live so much more productive lives then those who have no clinical limitations. It’s like God made them full of joy and dedication, so we can learn major lessons about life through them.
Growing up my mother had a boyfriend who’s name was Johnny. Johnny was 100% blind due to being shot in the head years before he and my mom met. However, he was the most genuine, kindhearted and motivated person I ever encountered. I learned so much about overcoming through him. He worked at McDonald’s, he loved music and going to the movies. Yes the movies. I would sit beside him and explain the visuals, but his ears and heart captured the essence.
I feel so fortunate to have known him because that taught me a lot about not making excuses. Overcoming adversity. And over all having a healthy respect for people with disabilities. It definitely inspires me to be the person that I am today. Living in a no judgment zone, regardless of how society looks at people who are different!
Pictured with me is my niece who just graduated high school. She inspires me too.
She faces challenges of her own, but pushes on to bring light and joy to whoever meets her. I also have many friends who have physical and mental limitations, that have cultivated in me the ability to realize just how much God values all of His children. So how can I ever keep a bad attitude or be ungrateful? When God is using the very people society deems “handicap”, to show us what real strength is.
