Putting ability into disability

My first intention with this blog was to make people more aware that others with disabilities have a lot of capabilities. I for one don't let my disability stop me from doing what I want to do. Some people may see it as a weakness but I see it as a strength. Overcoming my disability has made me a stronger person. There are a lot of tasks that are more difficult for me to complete. Some of these difficult tasks are what other people may take for granted. For example, drinking out of a cup. My hands shake a lot so when I pick up a glass it sometimes spills a bit.

Being less able in one category makes me more in another. I feel that I have a better understanding of people. With that being said I think that a career with psychology is the path for me to take. So instead of focusing on my weaknesses I have decided to increase my strengths. Hopefully by doing this I can have a better outlook on my life and work on doing more to enjoy it.
