Woo hoo!! Finally here I am writing my first blog! I’ve been planning and thinking about writing this blog for several years, as a matter of fact, I’ve had this website up with the “Coming Soon” page for just about 2 years! What’s been the hold up? Well, that’s a good question and I don’t really have a good answer. But, I do want to tell you why this website has been stirring in my heart and mind for several years.
I live life with very little sight. When I was 8 years old I was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP). RP is a genetic and degenerative disease of the retina. Over the next 30+ years my vision has decreased. Sometimes the changes in my vision have been settle and then at times I notice something significant that I can no longer see.
My life motto is “Where there’s a will, there’s a way!” Often I find that I cannot accomplish a task due to my lack of sight, which sends me on a mission to figure out how to do that task. Sometimes it is a simple fix like place a tactical dot so I can locate a button or I have to get on the internet and research a solution. Often that solution is simple and I can download a new app or computer program and sometimes it’s not a simple fix and I have to get creative.
My dream is to use this website to inspire you to overcome whatever obstacles life throws at you. We think we are alone in facing lifes challenges, but in fact we all face challenges. We all have to overcome difficulties. I hope to encourage you as I share my accomplishments, victories, challenges and even my failures.
So, without further ado, ready or not, Not by Sight Insight is a reality!
