I write this letter as Learning Disabilities Awareness month comes to an end. I am so grateful for the opportunity to use the month to educate those around me about learning disabilities and am feeling empowered by the writing journey that I started earlier this year. My hope is to continue to inspire as many people as possible.
I was reading an article today written by an individual with an invisible and they described it as “ a complex beautiful reality” I think this is a great quote to describe all disabilities because it uses words to describe various aspects of a disability.
I see my you as beautiful because its given me many shining moments throughout my life an example being, and its added a deeper meaning and purpose to my life and I know now more then ever I am becoming more self aware and reflective of my journey.
You are complex because you are invisible, and even though it’s a learning disability it encompasses as I have said before social/emotional, and motor challenges.
The reality is this, I am different, but so is everyone else, we are all unique and I know this is not something that is just going to disappear and everyday will have its challenges but the way I see it, I chose to face each day with the innermost understand that I am me and I was given this disability for a reason to grow, to shine, to understand, and to inspire.
My name is Nisha and I am Learning Disabled!
