The story of Helen Keller comes to mind when I think life is difficult and overwhelming. She lost her hearing and sight from an illness at nineteen months old. Her parents and instructor, Anne Sullivan, worked tirelessly to help her communicate and become independent. Despite her handicap, Helen Keller went on to become a world-famous speaker and author.
Helen Keller did not let a handicap stand in the way of what she wanted. Are there times in your life when you want to do something different? To break away from the norm and be adventurous? Life is too short to wonder what if? It is important to be responsible, but it is also important to grasp what you want in life. Don't let fear rule your life. If you want a change, stop, assess your life, look, know what you want and go after it.
Remember, if Helen Keller could do it, so can you.
“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.”--Helen Keller
