Oh Yeah?

When she was around 12, my niece was diagnosed with a learning disability. Three years ago she was graduated magna from Penn (which at the time, was ranked by U.S. News as tied with Stanford in their college rankings right behind Harvard, Princeton and Yale). Yesterday she received her diploma from Harvard Law School. She made law review there two years ago. Not bad. Needless to say she was a stellar high school student. Also fun, decent, sweet, charming and thoroughly likeable. I would also mention beautiful, but this is about character, so won’t.

I am now wondering if that silly diagnosis perhaps somehow helped set things in motion to get her to where she is today. Quite possibly.

Never but never accept limitations that other people try to place on you. Never ever accept the limitations that you try to put on you.

Observation is power. Judgment is weakness. What is is the way it really is.

Realize, appreciate, celebrate. Create, contribute, live, love, laugh. Enjoy. Rejoice.
