What is your superpower?
Yesterday I picked up a book on sale at the Penn Bookstore. It was 'The World According to Mr. Rogers'. I found the book hidden in the wrong basket while waiting in the checkout line. I was in need of some motivation; it was meant to be. I remember many days when I was little watching Mr. Rogers on PBS on our black and white TV while sitting at the kitchen table. I had to get it.
This morning, in search of a #motivationalmonday I happened to open the book up to this quote.
"Part of the problem with the word disabilities is that it immediately suggests an inability to see or hear or walk or do other things thats any of us take for granted. But what of people who can't feel? Or talk about their feelings? Or manage their feelings in constructive ways? What of people who aren't able to form close and strong relationships? And people who cannot find fulfillment in their lives, or those who have lost hope, who live in disappointment and bitterness and find in life no joy, no love. These, it seems to me, are the real disabilities."
If someone is happy, why does it matter that they can or cannot do? Why do we generalize people and things based off of their senses. While one part of us may not be the strongest, another can grows stronger. Often, if you're blind your hearing or your sense of touch is phenomenal. Many that are deaf have superb sight and learn visually. Everyone has their own superpower and being different from each other is what makes us human.
