Once you accept that you are disabled you can start to live your life again. I think I have mentioned before that when I first lost my sight I would let everyone make my decisions for me. Once I started making my own choices on what I wanted then I became happier and I certainly felt more peaceful inside. You can look happy on the outside, but you need to be true to yourself to be happy and at peace with yourself on the inside. This is what the quotes are saying that you need to be ready for good things to start coming your way when you are at peace with yourself.
