“Oh darling, what if you fly?”


There is a young girl with fairy wings on. The whole picture is sepia toned. In the middle of the picture there is a box of text that reads ""What if I fall? Oh, but my darling, what if you fly?" - e.h. "
“What if I fall? Oh, but my darling, what if you fly?” – e.h.

This picture was posted on the RP Truths Facebook page. It really appealed to me. As anybody goes about their day, there are multiple opportunities for them to succeed or fail. I feel like as a person with a disability, we have a lot more opportunities for success or failure, even with what people would think were the most basic things, such as walking to a new destination, making a new recipe, or trying to do something new online.

However, these are opportunities or experiences that we all must have. For if we don’t try, we obviously won’t have the opportunity to succeed. Over the past year, I have been pushed past my comfort zone and limit in many areas of my life. Sometime I’ll share some of them. However, by being pushed by others or pushing myself, I have shown myself that I can do way more than I sometimes think I can and I have also been able to show the world and those who don’t think I am as able as I am, that I am ABLE and I can succeed.. I can FLY!
