Our flaws make us different, truth is, we are the author in our own story, and can use our difference as a way to show life’s glory.
Like the pianist who lost both his arms in a freak accident but hasn’t let his dream of becoming a concert player stop him. He is known to move his audience to tears, using his toes to usher in hope.
Or the motivational speaker who was born with an extremely rare congenital disorder which caused the absence of legs and arms. Who became vocal about his difference in an effort to give meaning to life.
Own the rights to your flaws. Your difference can be the superpower in someone’s life.
My daughter developed tourette syndrome at the age of 8, for those of you who do not know what that is. It’s a neurological disorder characterized by involuntary sounds and or body movements (better known as tics or tic disorder).
It can be loud at times jerking her body frequent, head, shoulders, hands, whatever her brain decides it wants to do at any given moment, for no apparent rhyme or reason.
She is now 10 years of age and show her courage everyday.
Her brain is always in exaggeration. It is constantly telling other parts of her body to do things at inappropriate times.
But despite all of that shes shown time and time again her natural abilities. Shes gentle, empathic, kind, respectful and creative. The list goes on.
A lot of times your disability enhances your natural ability.
She always encourage her friends to do things outside of the box. Trust me when I say outside of the box (that’s a whole other blog).
She doesn’t hide or retreat, shes right in front (me, me, me) taking her place, showing and knowing she belong.
My point here is two fold: 1) We are born with some natural strengths. These natural strengths can take center stage.
2) we can either amplify those natural strengths, or cave to our difference.
When watching someone with a disability shine, it naturally gives you the feeling that you can do anything you set your mind too (hence giving you superpower). In that moment you understand that they’ve somehow learned what Being, really mean.
My daughter, with her extreme disability has been the superpower in our life.
Love, Light & Energy
