Sorry I didn't get my new post out last Monday, as I was dealing with a bad fall and a bad cut on my knee. But as I always say, you gotta have Perspective. Yes, my fall was an accident on a wet floor, and I sustained a large gash on my knee. I had to go to my Doctor, huge uncomfy bandages for weeks and he put me off work for a week! Ugh! I could feel sorry for myself, but that's not my nature. I feel very appreciative that I didn't break a bone or land on my head. Perspective! It could have been far worse. And I have always preferred to see the glass half full, rather than a glass half empty!
And Perspective impacts my Dollie also. No, she doesn't look like the other canine kids on the block. Why you ask? Because she has to wear the Elizabethan E-collar dogs need if their injured. But I don't see it as her E-collar, I see it as her crown! It's Perspective. It'show one chooses to look at it. And Dollie's nickname is The Queen after all.

See, now that's what I'm referring to when I talk about Perspective, and how it can relate to ones disability/visual impairment. And I agree with Dr. Seuss' quote, "Why fit in if you were born to stand out?! Yes, of course having any kind of disability is a challenge, and/or being born with a visual impairment is very challenging. But in my opinion, why would I want to be like others and "fit in"? I'm Me! I'm Connie..... and there's only one Me! And one You! So, I say, if you don't "fit in", appreciate and embrace it. Embrace the You in You! As Dr. Seuss states best....

So I hope you all read a couple of my fave author's quotes and really appreciate and embrace the You in You. And appreciate that you may not "fit In" and that's okay. Because like Dollie, I'd rather stand out! Because as Dr. Seuss states, "There is no one alive who is Youer than You"!
