Disabilities Can’t Stop You

This is a guest post by author Rebekah Mitchell-Wagner

My name is Rebekah Mitchell-Wagner, I am a YA (Young Adult) author from Thomasville NC. I graduated High School in 2012 and attended 1 year of college before having to quit due to medical issues. I love food, reading, music, Scooby Doo and of course writing. I currently live with my husband, my miracle daughter and my 3 dogs and cat. I say miracle daughter because I was told I would never be able to have kids and thankfully she is here which only goes to show that anything is possible.

People everywhere all over the world who suffer from some kind of disability most of the time feel depressed and worthless because they feel that their disability defines who they are. However, that is not the case and today I am going to explain what I mean that. If anyone with a disability is reading this I am here to tell you that your disability DOES NOT AND WILL NOT EVER define who you are. Your characteristics and your heart and what you believe in is what defines who you are. Believe me, I know, When I was five years old I was in a terrible car accident that resulted in me having a TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) and my parents were told that I would NEVER be anything but a marshmallow but I proved them wrong. I graduated high school, have a wonderful daughter that I was never supposed to have and have four books published. I deal with a severe seizure condition every day but I am alive and living the way I want. How? Motivation, determination, and Jesus.  It took me a long time to learn it and now that I have I can tell you that your disability DOES NOT AND WILL NOT EVER STOP YOU unless you let it. If you want something go get it! Stopped waiting. Tell that disability NO MORE and do what you want to do.
