reach out

“If someone is not treating you in a way that you like, remember that there are so many nice people out there. The problem is that when you love someone, you make excuses for that kind of behavior.”

Natalie Morales

“Negative thinking is subtle and deceptive. It wears many faces and hides behind the mask of excuses. It is important to strip away the mask and discover the real, root emotion.”

Robert H. Schuller


is your imagination in focus?

"You cannot depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus."

Mark Twain

“If you really want to do it, you do it. There are no excuses.”

Bruce Nauman

How is your imagine? Is it in focus or do you need help getting it back in focus? Do you believe that people with disabilities can do whatever they want to do or do you think they can only imagine doing fun things?


what’s your answer?

“The real man is one who always finds excuses for others, but never excuses himself.”

Henry Ward Beecher

“It doesn’t matter if you come from the inner city. People who fail in life are people who find lots of excuses. It’s never too late for a person to recognize that they have potential in themselves.”

Ben Carson


Are you?

“It is wise to direct your anger towards problems – not people; to focus your energies on answers – not excuses.”

William Arthur Ward

“He that is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else.”

Benjamin Franklin


try new things

“For what it’s worth … it’s never too late, or in my case too early, to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit. Start whenever you want. You can change or stay the same. There are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people who have a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.”


laugh it off

“Efforts and courage are not enough without purpose and direction.”

John F. Kennedy

“Work hard for what you want because it won’t come to you without a fight. You have to be strong and courageous and know that you can do anything you put your mind to. If somebody puts you down or criticizes you, just keep on believing in yourself and turn it into something positive.”

Deaf-Blindness A UNIQUE Disability

By Ruth Silver

Deaf-blindness is not simply deafness plus blindness.? It is not two disabilities put together.? It is one unique disability.? Let me try to explain.? I am totally blind having lost my vision gradually starting in childhood.? In young adulthood I started losing my hearing.? With hearing aids, I am able to understand some speech in a quiet environment.

When I was only blind, I could socialize with many people at a gathering.? Now, at best, I can converse with the individual next to me.
