How I Discovered That Impossible Doesn’t Exist

From the time I was born I have faced many challenges and obstacles due to my cerebral palsy. Today I want to talk about the day that I learn that the word impossible does not exist.

We can talk about many experiences I had that taught me that the word impossible doesn’t exist.

When did I learn that the impossible doesn’t exist? From the day I was born. Throughout my life, my dad and mom have always taught me that the word impossible does not exist. To me, it really never existed and I’ve always looked at what the word really means: ”I’m Possible”

Throughout these life experiences that I’ve had as a woman with a disability, I learned as I’ve guided myself through life with the support of my friends and family that nothing is impossible. Don’t let your situation stop you because you are in control of your life. No else could control your life and what you do with your life. Nothing is impossible unless you make it impossible. That is the key to living an inspirational and happy life each day. Try setting a goal for yourself each year when you turn another year older. Set the main goal for yourself and you will soon learn the true meaning of the word impossible means I’m impossible.
